skb_copy_expand: copy and expand sk_buff

NAME

skb_copy_expand - copy and expand sk_buff

SYNOPSIS

struct sk_buff * skb_copy_expand(const struct sk_buff skb, int newheadroom, int newtailroom, gfp_t gfp_mask);

ARGUMENTS

skb

buffer to copy

newheadroom

new free bytes at head

newtailroom

new free bytes at tail

gfp_mask

allocation priority

DESCRIPTION

Make a copy of both an sk_buff and its data and while doing so allocate additional space.

This is used when the caller wishes to modify the data and needs a private copy of the data to alter as well as more space for new fields. Returns NULL on failure or the pointer to the buffer on success. The returned buffer has a reference count of 1.

You must pass GFP_ATOMIC as the allocation priority if this function is called from an interrupt.
