Subject: Re: [PATCH v2] openvswitch: retain parsed IPv6 header fields in
 flow on error skipping extension headers

From: Simon Horman <>
Date: Sat, 29 Aug 2015 09:02:21 +0900

> When an error occurs skipping IPv6 extension headers retain the already

> that is always use the frag_off value set by ipv6_skip_exthdr().
