but this works on a specific xdp buff, drivers work with mtu

and what if the driver want to have this as an option per packet .. 
i.e.: if there is enough tail room, then build_skb, otherwise
alloc new skb, copy headers, setup data frags.. etc

having such limitations on driver can be very strict, i think the
decision must remain dynamic per frame..

of-course drivers should optimize to preserve enough tail room for all
rx packets..
