Subject: Re: [PATCH v2.57] datapath: Add basic MPLS support to kernel

I have some miscellaneous comments on things that I noticed, all of
which are pretty small. I will probably have a few more tomorrow but
my hope is that we can get this in soon.

I think it would be better to not free the skb on error here - it
introduces an exception case in the call to push_mpls() that would be
otherwise handled if we didn't free it.

When we set the EtherType at the bottom of the function, I don't think
that it is correct in the presence of VLAN tags because it will set
the outer EtherType.

I don't think this check is necessary since we would have rejected
such packets at flow validation time.

Is it possible to use csum_replace4() to simplify this?

I think we talked about some time ago but it seems like this will get
reset by recirculation (although maybe it's unlikely that
recirculation will get used on output).

Also, maybe I'm missing something but I don't see where we actually
set the inner protocol.
