The boolean conversion here is probably unnecessary. I would make
clone an int like flags and work with that. I suspect the compiler is
doing it already, but it is better to be explicit.

Rather than having to do two checks you could just check for
SKB_ALLOC_NAPI and SKB_ALLOC_FCLONE in a single check. You could just
do something like:
if ((flags & (SKB_ALLOC_FCLONE | SKB_ALLOC_NAPI) == SKB_ALLOC_NAPI)

That way you can avoid the extra conditional jumps and can start
computing the flags value sooner.
