net: add kmemcheck annotation in __alloc_skb()
pskb_expand_head() triggers a kmemcheck warning when copy of skb_shared_info is done in pskb_expand_head() This is because destructor_arg field is not necessarily initialized at this point. Add kmemcheck_annotate_variable() call in __alloc_skb() to instruct kmemcheck this is a normal situation.
