Good point, I got rid of it for v2.

Yeah, it can happen if 'v' is bigger than the available tailroom. An
assertion sounds good in this case since dp_packet_set_size() relies on
the caller making sure there is enough space for performing the
operation (like allocating space themselves if not enough space is
available).

I'll use one here as well then, for the same reasons pointed out above.

Thanks for putting the time for reviewing the series, Eelco.

Tiago.
