I've committed the following to net-2.6 and will queue
this up for -stable as well.

net: Kill skb_truesize_check(), it only catches false-positives.

A long time ago we had bugs, primarily in TCP, where we would modify
skb->truesize (for TSO queue collapsing) in ways which would corrupt
the socket memory accounting.

skb_truesize_check() was added in order to try and catch this error
more systematically.

However this debugging check has morphed into a Frankenstein of sorts
and these days it does nothing other than catch false-positives.
