Not positive you need that because you may be account for more head or 
tail room than necessary.

For instance with tag_brcm.c and systemport.c we need 4 bytes of head 
room for the Broadcom tag and an additional 8 bytes for pushing the 
transmit status block descriptor in front of the Ethernet frame about to 
be transmitted. These additional 8 bytes are a requirement of the DSA 
master here and exist regardless of DSA being used, but we should not be 
propagating them to the DSA slave.
