Subject: [PATCH 01/14] net: dsa: Don't set skb->protocol on outgoing tagged packets

Setting skb->protocol to a private protocol type may result in warning
messages such as
	e1000e 0000:00:19.0 em1: checksum_partial proto=dada!

This happens if the L3 protocol is IP or IPv6 and skb->ip_summed is set
to CHECKSUM_PARTIAL. Looking through the code, it appears that changing
skb->protocol for transmitted packets is not necessary and may actually
be harmful. Drop it.
