It's caused by skb_shared_info at the end of sk_buff was overwritten by
ISCSI_KEVENT_IF_ERROR when parsing nlmsg info from skb in iscsi_if_rx.

During the loop if skb->len == nlh->nlmsg_len and both are sizeof(*nlh),
ev = nlmsg_data(nlh) will acutally get skb_shinfo(SKB) instead and set a
new value to skb_shinfo(SKB)->nr_frags by ev->type.

This patch is to fix it by checking nlh->nlmsg_len properly there to
avoid over accessing sk_buff.
