It looks like the above sentence is a left-over from previous version
as, as this patch does not touch data_len. And I think it contradicts
the previous one, so it's a bit confusing.

IMHO 'offset' would be a better name for both the variable and the CB
field, as it can points both inside the skb frags, linear part or frag

Otherwise LGTM, thanks!
