Please share a stack trace if this was a real bug spotted in the wild.

I do not believe this patch is correct.

if (A + B >= MAX)   is equivalent to  if (A + B + 1 > MAX)

Note how the other condition (when there is no bytes in skb header) is coded :

if (A + B > MAX) return false;

In anycase, please always provide a Fixes: tag for any bug fix.

Thanks.
