Yes.
For most of the case, there should be two steps of the 2/3/4 steps, when
there is extra step in the above calltrace, it may mean the page_count()
is 2 instead of 1, if that is the case, __skb_frag_ref() may be called
for a page from page pool((page->pp_magic & ~0x3UL) == PP_SIGNATURE)),
which is not supposed to happen.

When there are more than two steps for the freeing side, the only case I know
about the skb cloning and expanding case, which is fixed by the below commit:
2cc3aeb5eccc (skbuff: Fix a potential race while recycling page_pool packets)

Maybe there are other case we missed?
