This commit log message talks about recirculation, which has been removed
from this series.

And in fact, I think, for my suggested implementation of recirculation
by just returning and re-running the stack, this whole skb clone issue
either goes away or needs to happen in a different place.

If you recirculate by just returning and re-processing the packet at
the top-level entry point into openvswitch, then that's where you
would clone.
