It would be great to come to some conclusion on where exactly to store
kcov_handle. Technically, it is possible to use skb extensions for the
purpose, though it will indeed slightly increase the complexity.

Jakub, you think that kcov_handle should be added as an skb extension,
right?

Though I do not really object to moving the field, it still seems to
me that sk_buff itself is a better place. Right now skb extensions
store values that are local to specific protocols and that are only
meaningful in the context of these protocols (correct me if I'm
wrong). Although this patch only adds remote kcov coverage to the wifi
code, kcov_handle can be meaningful for other protocols as well - just
like the already existing sk_buff fields. So adding kcov_handle to skb
extensions will break this logical separation.
