Thanks.

The reason that I had the code arranged this way was so that
calls to __skb_gso_segment() would go via rpl___skb_gso_segment()
on kernels older than v3.11. In particular calls outside of gso.c.

On closer examination the only such case is in ovs_dp_upcall().
Currently there should be no need to perform MPLS GSO segmentation in that
case because MPLS GSO segmentation can only be needed after actions are
applied.

However, I am concerned that it may be necessary later when
recirculation is introduced as in that case an upcall may occur
on a packet which has had actions applied.
