Hi Krzysztof

This sounds quite strange to me. Some memory corruption might happen
regardless of networking changes, and this commit could uncover an
existing bug.

You might try different SLUB/SLAB choice, and try different debugging
SLUB/SLAB facilities.

With SLUB, skbuff_fclone_cache shares :t-0000512 kmem cache.
You could try slub_nomerge=1 for a start.
