Subject: [PATCH 3.13 008/187] macvlan: Initialize vlan_features to turn on offload support. -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Vlad Yasevich <>

[ Upstream commit 081e83a78db9b0ae1f5eabc2dedecc865f509b98 ]

Macvlan devices do not initialize vlan_features.  As a result,
any vlan devices configured on top of macvlans perform very poorly.
Initialize vlan_features based on the vlan features of the lower-level
