Yes if allocation and recycling are in the same NAPI polling context.

As pointed out by Saeed and Ilias, the allocation and recycling seems to
may not be happening in the same NAPI polling context, see:

"In the current code base if they are only called under NAPI this might be true.
On the page_pool skb recycling patches though (yes we'll eventually send those
:)) this is called from kfree_skb()."

So there may need some additionl attention.
