If correct we need to find the root cause. Without that, this is not
very informative. And likely the fix is not related, as that does not
involve tx_flags or tskey.

What exact behavior do you observe: tx timestamp notifications go
missing when enabling IP_TOS?

But deviates from the established behavior of other transport protocol TCP.

I think it's a bit premature to resubmit as is while still discussing
the original patch.

As pointed out in v1, zerocopy flags are handled by protocol
independent skb_segment. It calls skb_zerocopy_clone.
