Subject: [PATCH net-next 1/9] net: skb: introduce try_kfree_skb()

From: Menglong Dong <>

In order to simply the code, introduce try_kfree_skb(), which allow
SKB_NOT_DROPPED_YET to be passed. When the reason is SKB_NOT_DROPPED_YET,
consume_skb() will be called to free the skb normally. Otherwise,
kfree_skb_reason() will be called.
