I understand that.  I had two issues, which you cleared up one by
reminding me that the protocol matches on skb->protocol before it tries
to run the ->classify() routine.  The other issue I am seeing is with 8
bands, an 802_3 filter is affecting classification of IP traffic.  For
example, I have an 802_3 filter to look for dst MAC address, but an ssh
packet, which without any filters should go into flowid 1:3 on my
system, is getting pushed into flowid 1:1.  I remove the 802_3 filter,
and ssh traffic starts going back into 1:3.  No other filters on the
system.  That's the main issue I'm seeing, so I'll keep investigating to
see what's going on.
