Yes, but the sock_alloc_send_pskb() returns - EAGAIN when no sndbuf space.
So there is need to check return value which is -EAGAIN or -ENOMEM or - EAGAIN?

struct sk_buff *sock_alloc_send_pskb()
{
...
	for (;;) {
...
		sk_set_bit(SOCKWQ_ASYNC_NOSPACE, sk);
		set_bit(SOCK_NOSPACE, &sk->sk_socket->flags);
		err = -EAGAIN;
		if (!timeo)
			goto failure;
...
	}
	skb = alloc_skb_with_frags(header_len, data_len, max_page_order,
				   errcode, sk->sk_allocation);
	if (skb)
		skb_set_owner_w(skb, sk);
	return skb;
...
	*errcode = err;
	return NULL;
