This seems a lot of code churn for no runtime difference ?

If we ever want to add an additional 'field', we likely have to revert
this patch.

-static inline void gro_cells_destroy(struct gro_cells *gcells)
+static inline void gro_cell_free_percpu(struct gro_cell __percpu *gcells)
 {
        int i;
 
-       if (!gcells->cells)
+       if (IS_ERR_OR_NULL(gcells))
                return;

For example, I have no idea why this part is needed.
