SYNOPSIS

int skb_zerocopy(struct sk_buff to, struct sk_buff from, int len, int hlen);

ARGUMENTS

to

destination buffer

from

source buffer

len

hlen

size of linear headroom in destination buffer

DESCRIPTION

Copies up to `len` bytes from `from` to `to` by creating references to the frags in the source buffer.

The `hlen` as calculated by skb_zerocopy_headlen specifies the headroom in the `to` buffer.

Return value: 0: everything is OK -ENOMEM: couldn't orphan frags of from due to lack of memory -EFAULT: skb_copy_bits found some problem with skb geometry
