whooops ... yes, I think so, thanks for catching it.

Since the error code is always discarded, perhpas udp_rcv_segment() can
simply return 0 when IS_ERR(segs) is true, so we can save a conditional
here. This is currently a slower/exceptional path, but if we will
enable UDP GRO for forwaded packets, it will be hit often.

Cheers,

Paolo
