pskb_pull after clone == pskb_expand_head
meaning that we'll be linearizing things all the time.
can we try skb_share_check() first ?
the packet shouldn't be shared at this point, so it might save a lot.

bpf can read packet beyond linear header just fine.
It's slower than reads from header, since extra calls invovled,
but if that becomes a bottle neck we can optimize the way we do JIT there.
