Ah cool. Thanks for explaining.

Agreed that the discussion should be about whether to fix it up in
strparser or sockmap. bpf seems inappropriate.

Just to make sure I understand, is it possible you meant to say that the
other way around? Surely the rcv callback can do whatever it wants with
the skb. Its the parse callback that may need to be a little more
careful with the skb.

For the parse case, why not just clone and pull?

A printk in that section when (orig_offset + eaten > skb_headlen(head))
confirms that this case is not uncommon or impossible. Would have to do
more work to see how many hundreds of times per second, but it is not a
philosophical concern.
