Can you describe in more detail what exactly is lacking in the current
zerocopy interface for this this different implementation? Or point to
a github tree with the feature patches attached, perhaps.

I think it's good to split into multiple smaller patchsets, starting
with core stack support. But find it hard to understand which of these
changes are truly needed to support a new use case.

If anything, eating up the last 8 bits in skb_shared_info should be last resort.

I'll take a look at the individual patches in more detail later.
