All of the DDP naming seems wrong to me. I realize the specific use case
is targeted payloads of a ULP, but it is still S/W handing H/W specific
buffers for a payload of a flow.

Neither of these socket layer intrusions are needed. All references but
1 -- the skbuff check -- are in the mlx5 driver. Any skb check that is
needed can be handled with a different setting.

you have this variable length buf, but it is not used (as far as I can
tell). But then ...

... how would you use it within another struct like this?

similar to my comment above, I did not see any uses of the buf element.
