I didn't look at this in detail, but I'm surprised you can get away
without any copying: For one, the header part needs copying
anyway, so you'd pointlessly map and then copy it if it's small
enough. And second you need to be prepared for the frontend
to hand you more slots than you can fit in MAX_SKB_FRAGS
(namely when MAX_SKB_FRAGS < XEN_NETIF_NR_SLOTS_MIN),
which you can't handle with mapping alone afaict.
