Is ip_build_xmit_slow() unused?

I have probably stupid question: what is the purpose of

Grepping over linux kernel source tree finds only two entries for

net/ipv4/ip_output.c:static int ip_build_xmit_slow(struct sock *sk,

net/ipv4/ip_output.c: return

Please notice that the second entry is inside ip_build_xmit_slow()
definition, i.e. this is recursive call.

Is this function really unused?
