Yes, kernel will crash without this change.

First of all, passing yet-another argument to mlx5e_xdp_handle(), also
looks weird, and is on the brink of becoming a performance issue, as on
x86_64 you can pass max 6 arguments in registers before they get pushed
on the stack. Adding this would be the 7th argument.

Second the MLX5_SKB_FRAG_SZ() calculation is also weird, because it
does not provide any tailroom in the packet, I guess it is for
supporting another memory mode, as in case XDP is activated there are
plenty of tailroom.
  I though about increasing the frag_size, but I choose not to, because
then this patch would change the driver behavior beyond adding frame_sz
for XDP.
