Probably you do not want to attempt any collapse if skb->ddp_crc is
set right there.

This checks only the second, third, and remaining skbs.

tcp_collapse() is copying data from small skbs to pack it to bigger
skb (one page of payload), in case
of memory emergency/pressure (socket queues are full)

If your changes are trying to avoid 'needless'  copies, maybe you
should reconsider and let the emergency packing be done.

If the copy is not _possible_, you should rephrase your changelog to
clearly state the kernel _cannot_ access this memory in any way.
