success and multicast should be declared as bool

I find following more readable, it probably generates more branches,
but avoid dirtying rx_errors if it is in another cache line.

if (likely(success)) {
	rx_stats->rx_packets++;
	rx_stats->rx_bytes += length;
	if (multicast)
		rx_stats->multicast++;
} else {
	rx_stats->rx_errors++;
}

its not _likely_ that skb != NULL, its a fact :)

-> macvlan_count_rx(vlan, skb->len + ETH_HLEN, true, false);
