Subject[PATCH] net/skbuff: silence warnings under memory pressure
Date
When running heavy memory pressure workloads, the system is throwing
endless warnings below due to the allocation could fail from
__build_skb(), and the volume of this call could be huge which may
generate a lot of serial console output and cosumes all CPUs as
warn_alloc() could be expensive by calling dump_stack() and then
show_mem().

Fix it by silencing the warning in this call site. Also, it seems
unnecessary to even print a warning at all if the allocation failed in
__build_skb(), as it may just retransmit the packet and retry.
