It seems that mac802154_header_create is calling from a irq context.
So kzalloc need GFP_ATOMIC flag.

This patch will fix it.

Please remove this allocation, its absolutely not needed.

40 bytes on the stack are fine.

I don't know how I can do that. head is a temp buffer.
At the end of this function stands:

memcpy(skb_push(skb, pos), head, pos)

and 'pos' is determined at runtime. skb_push will add data to the
start of buffer, so head buffer will be at the start of skb. I don't
know where I should manipulate the skb buffer at beginning of this function.

Hi Alexander,

Please check out the patch set here:

      https://github.com/beagleboard/kernel/tree/3.8/patches/6lowpan

This is Tony's patch set which is not merged yet and might save you some 
time. Tony is hoping to get much of it merged this cycle.

Alan.
