net: copy userspace buffers on device forwarding
dev_forward_skb loops an skb back into host networking stack which might hang on the memory indefinitely. In particular, this can happen in macvtap in bridged mode. Copy the userspace fragments to avoid blocking the sender in that case. As this patch makes skb_copy_ubufs extern now, I also added some documentation and made it clear the SKBTX_DEV_ZEROCOPY flag automatically instead of doing it in all callers. This can be made into a separate patch if people feel it's worth it. Signed-off-by: Michael S. Tsirkin <mst@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
