Subject: [PATCH v2 net-next 0/2] pskb_extract() helper function.

This patchset follows up on the discussion in

For RDS-TCP, we have to deal with the full gamut of
nonlinear sk_buffs, including all the frag_list variants.
Also, the parent skb has to remain unchanged, while the clone
is queued for Rx on the PF_RDS socket. 

Patch 1 of this patchset adds a pskb_extract() function that 
does all this without the redundant memcpy's in pskb_expand_head() 
and __pskb_pull_tail().

v2: Marcelo Leitner review comments
