If there is a desire to have access to the skb_gso_validate_network_len(), I'd
keep that behind the flag then, but would drop the skb_headlen(skb) + len_diff
case given the mentioned case on rx where it would yield misleading results to
users that might be unintuitive & hard to debug.

Haven't checked but likely something as prog_tests/skb_ctx.c might not be sufficient
to pass it into the helper. For real case you might need a netns + veth setup like
some of the other tests are doing and then generating TCP stream from one end to the
other.
