Subject: [PATCH net] bna: fix skb->truesize underestimation

From: Eric Dumazet <>

skb->truesize is not meant to be tracking amount of used bytes
in an skb, but amount of reserved/consumed bytes in memory.

For instance, if we use a single byte in last page fragment,
we have to account the full size of the fragment.

skb->truesize can be very different from skb->len, that has
a very specific safety purpose.
