of what if the msgb is 'borrowed' or 'owned/transferred'. Whenever we reach a
_send method we actually transfer the ownership (as the data might be queued
or such).

The other technical part is to make sure we first establish a rule by
1.) adding doxygen/API documentation to the sendmsg function
2.) maybe look into introducing dummy annotations like __borrow, __takes that
we could autocheck in the future (e.g. by extending spaze/smack)

The issue with reviewing such a patch is the question if you have catched
everything. E.g. I think you missed need to convert (and what it calls):

static int gprs_ns_tx(struct gprs_nsvc *nsvc, struct msgb *msg)

                LOGP(DNS, LOGL_ERROR, "unsupported NS linklayer %u\n", nsvc->ll);
                ret = -EIO;
        return ret;
