gro: Re-fix different skb headrooms

The patch: "gro: fix different skb headrooms" in its part:
"2) allocate a minimal skb for head of frag_list" is buggy. The copied
skb has p->data set at the ip header at the moment, and skb_gro_offset
is the length of ip + tcp headers. So, after the change the length of
mac header is skipped. Later skb_set_mac_header() sets it into the
NET_SKB_PAD area (if it's long enough) and ip header is misaligned at
NET_SKB_PAD + NET_IP_ALIGN offset. There is no reason to assume the
original skb was wrongly allocated, so let's copy it as it was.
