net: add kmemcheck annotation in __alloc_skb()
Eric Dumazet [Tue, 25 Jan 2011 23:18:38 +0000 (23:18 +0000)]
pskb_expand_head() triggers a kmemcheck warning when copy of
skb_shared_info is done in pskb_expand_head()

This is because destructor_arg field is not necessarily initialized at
this point. Add kmemcheck_annotate_variable() call in __alloc_skb() to
instruct kmemcheck this is a normal situation.
