I don't know how sk refcnt could work correctly without making
sk_wmem_alloc correctly. We certainly could just call skb_orphan()
is we don't need skb->sk any more, probably like the frag case,
but for this case, the neigh one, the skb's sitting in neigh->arp_queue
are not going to be freed unless in failed case, therefore skb->sk
should not be orphaned so early.
