During my load tests, one of the major factor was sk_drops being
incremented like crazy, dirtying a critical cache line, hurting
sk_filter reads for example.

        /* --- cacheline 6 boundary (384 bytes) --- */
        struct {
                atomic_t           rmem_alloc;           /* 0x180   0x4 */
                int                len;                  /* 0x184   0x4 */
                struct sk_buff *   head;                 /* 0x188   0x8 */
                struct sk_buff *   tail;                 /* 0x190   0x8 */
        } sk_backlog;                                    /* 0x180  0x18 */
        int                        sk_forward_alloc;     /* 0x198   0x4 */
        __u32                      sk_txhash;            /* 0x19c   0x4 */
        unsigned int               sk_napi_id;           /* 0x1a0   0x4 */
        unsigned int               sk_ll_usec;           /* 0x1a4   0x4 */
        atomic_t                   sk_drops;             /* 0x1a8   0x4 */
        int                        sk_rcvbuf;            /* 0x1ac   0x4 */
        struct sk_filter *         sk_filter;            /* 0x1b0   0x8 */
        union {
                struct socket_wq * sk_wq;                /*         0x8 */
                struct socket_wq * sk_wq_raw;            /*         0x8 */
        };                                               /* 0x1b8   0x8 */

I was playing moving this field elsewhere and not reading it if not
necessary.
