Yes it does. Just after finishing this topic, I would to sent the patches for
PTP. Maybe I'll do it in parallel, anything but the combination of L2/E2E/SLOB
seems to work.

I get a similar output when placing the two skb_dump() calls in the current
ksz_common_xmit() code:

Note that whilst some skb members differ, the two hexdumps look correct.

I did. tag_trailer and tag_ksz are quite similar here, so I took a combination of them.

The "open coding" is from the existing code (which doesn't say that it is
correct). I will investigate why the copied skb is different and whether 
psk_expand_head can do better.

I don't like to touch the non-tail taggers, this is too much out of the scope
of my current work.

As Florian requested I'll likely put the code into a separate function in
slave.c and call it from the individual tail-taggers in order not to put 
extra conditionals in dsa_slave_xmit.

Christian
