Subject: [PATCH net-next] net: skb_segment() should preserve backpressure

From: Toshiaki Makita <makita.toshiaki@....ntt.co.jp>

This patch generalizes commit d6a4a1041176 ("tcp: GSO should be TSQ
friendly") to protocols using skb_set_owner_w()

TCP uses its own destructor (tcp_wfree) and needs a more complex scheme
as explained in commit 6ff50cd55545 ("tcp: gso: do not generate out of
order packets")

This allows UDP sockets using UFO to get proper backpressure,
thus avoiding qdisc drops and excessive cpu usage.

Here are performance test results (macvlan on vlan):
