I see Eric has posted a fix for skb_try_coalesce(), but is that likely
to be acceptable for 3.15? How many other similar patches are we
expecting and/or how long do you think this careful checking will take?

Given that we are now at 3.15-rc5 I think we need to decide how to
proceed, either push ahead fixing all these issues or (partially) revert
this netback feature and try again for 3.16.
