Subject: [PATCH v2 net] net: Revert "net: avoid one atomic operation in
 skb_clone()"

From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@...gle.com>

Not sure what I was thinking, but doing anything after
releasing a refcount is suicidal or/and embarrassing.

By the time we set skb->fclone to SKB_FCLONE_FREE, another cpu
could have released last reference and freed whole skb.

We potentially corrupt memory or trap if CONFIG_DEBUG_PAGEALLOC is set.

v2: the revert went wrong, as SKB_FCLONE_UNAVAILABLE
    was later replaced by SKB_FCLONE_FREE, spotted by Sabrina Dubroca
