From: Chris Mi <cmi at nvidia.com>

BugLink: https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1946266

Currently, the psample netlink skb is allocated with a size that does
not account for the nested 'PSAMPLE_ATTR_TUNNEL' attribute and the
padding required for the 64-bit attribute 'PSAMPLE_TUNNEL_KEY_ATTR_ID'.
This can result in failure to add attributes to the netlink skb due
to insufficient tail room. The following error message is printed to
the kernel log: "Could not create psample log message".

Fix this by adjusting the allocation size to take into account the
nested attribute and the padding.
