unlikely() with goto is redundant and unnecessary.

IMHO jumping into a block is bad code style

Why not just move err: to the end as in:


	skb = skb_clone(skb, GFP_ATOMIC);
	if (unlikely(!skb))
		goto err;

	spin_lock(&port->bc_queue.lock);
	if (skb_queue_len(&port->bc_queue) < skb->dev->tx_queue_len) {
		__skb_queue_tail(&port->bc_queue, skb);
		err = 0;
	}
	spin_unlock(&port->bc_queue.lock);

	if (err)
		goto err;

	schedule_work(&port->bc_work);
	return;
err:

	atomic_long_inc(&skb->dev->rx_dropped);
}
