Seems '*pskb = skb' is needed prior returning RX_HANDLER_PASS - there's
a 'skb = skb_share_check()' at beginning of br_handle_frame.

(The *pskb = skb was present prior 8626c56c8279, but gone since there
was no longer an RX_HANDLER_PASS return).

One nit to consider:

The fix relies on the fact that RX_HANDLER_PASS != 0 (otherwise we end up
not knowing whether skb was STOLEN or br_handle_local_finish has
executed, which was the original problem 8626c56c8279 tried to address).

No reason to use the RX_HANDLER_xxx enumeration space as the ret code
of an 'okfn' (br_handle_local_finish in this case).
Some positive value locally defined in br_input.c (and documented in
br_handle_local_finish) would do.

Shmulik
