Public bug reported:

[Impact]
With small segment sizes, it is possible for the driver to free an SKB before 
transmitting it, potentially resulting in a crash.

[Test Case]
The test case for this is to use a small MTU (200) and mount an NFS exported 
directory. Create several (~4) 1M files w/ dd, then copy them locally. However, 
I have not been able to trigger the crash myself.

[Regression Risk]
Fix is upstream, so regressions will have upstream support. Fix is limited to a 
driver that is only applicable to the Cavium Thunder-X SoC, so risk is 
negligible to other platforms.
