Looking at it again, it isn't clear to me why this change switched over
to using pskb_trim in the 1st place.  The rework below just stays with
the simpler skb_trim that it was using previously.

Thanks,
Paul.

Subject: [PATCH] tipc: Optimize handling excess content on incoming messages

Remove code that trimmed excess trailing info from incoming messages
arriving over an Ethernet interface.  TIPC now ignores the extra info
while the message is being processed by the node, and only trims it off
if the message is retransmitted to another node.  (This latter step is
done to ensure the extra info doesn't cause the sk_buff to exceed the
outgoing interface's MTU limit.) The outgoing buffer is guaranteed to
be linear.

V2: maintain skb_trim usage; dont invoke pskb_trim needlessly

Applied, thanks.
