there was a small bug in L4Linux's L4shm based network driver, which
broke the driver on architectures where NET_IP_ALIGN != 0, e.g. on ARM.
This resulted in insufficient data being allocated for the skb in
l4x_l4shmc_interrupt, causing the subsequent skb_put to fail.

See attached diff for details.
