In the wd_block_output (in wd.c) function, there is a moment 
where the buf (which is skb->data) is copied to the shared 
memory of the ethercard (if I understood it right). But I 
didn't found out when the message and headers (ip and udp for
the case I am interested in) are copied in skb->data??

Also: what is exactly in skb->data?? Is there more than the
message and the headers?? Also the rest of the skbuffer??
