The ->nofail_skb handling is perfectly fine.
It is a backup SKB, meant to handle alloc_skb() failures for the
primary 'skb' allocation the _next_ time this function is called.
Even if the ->nofail_skb allocation fails, the primary operation
done by init_tp_parity() has succeeeded and we should return
All of the code in this function is perfectly prepared to handle
the case where ->nofail_skb is NULL.
