void skb_dst_set_noref(struct sk_buff
*skb, struct dst_entry *dst);
- dst entry
Sets skb dst, assuming a reference was not taken on dst. If dst entry is cached, we do not take reference and dst_release will be avoided by refdst_drop. If dst entry is not cached, we take reference, so that last dst_release can destroy the dst immediately.
