net: Inline skb_pull() in eth_type_trans().

In commit 6be8ac2f ("[NET]: uninline skb_pull, de-bloats a lot")
we uninlined skb_pull.

But in some critical paths it makes sense to inline this thing
and it helps performance significantly.

Create an skb_pull_inline() so that we can do this in a way that
serves also as annotation.

Based upon a patch by Eric Dumazet.
