    Hello,
    I want to know what is Maximum packet size given by kernel
    when called alloc_skb function?
    Actaully i want to know how IPSEC headers are added to
    kernel. As they are extra headers as compared to original TCP/IP stack
    packet structure. Does they require prior extra space to be allocated?
    regards,
