I think the above does the same thing as if CONFIG_MACB_USE_HWSTAMP is
undefined regarding cleanup, so there is no extra cleanup if the
gem_ptp_do_txstamp() path isn't taken, but I wasn't sure about the
"skb now belongs to the timestamp buffer" if we don't go down that
path.

This looks like how other drivers are doing things
