inlining 400 times a sequence of code is waste of icache, you probably
missed this.

I spent a lot of time on working on this implementation, tried many
different strategies before choosing the one in place.

Listen, I am tired of this thread, it seems you want to push changes
that have almost no value but still need lot of review.

Unless you make benchmarks and can make at least 5 % improvement of the
speed, or improve maintainability of this code, I am not interested.

We certainly _can_ one day have sizeof(struct sk_buff) > 256, and actual
code is ready for this. You want to break this for absolutely no valid
reason.

We _can_ change fields order anytime in struct sk_buff, even if you
state "its very unlikely that those fields are ever moved to the end
of sk_buff".
