Subject: [PATCH v2] net: core: don't account for udp header size when computing seglen

In case of tcp, gso_size contains the tcpmss.

For UFO (udp fragmentation offloading) skbs, gso_size is the fragment
payload size, i.e. we must not account for udp header size.

Otherwise, when using virtio drivers, a to-be-forwarded UFO GSO packet
will be needlessly fragmented in the forward path, because we think its
individual segments are too large for the outgoing link.

Fixes: fe6cc55f3a9a053 ("net: ip, ipv6: handle gso skbs in forwarding path")
