Subject: [PATCH v9 net-next 2/7] openvswitch: set skb protocol when receiving on internal device

Set skb protocol based on contents of packet. I have observed this is
necessary to get actual protocol of a packet when it is injected into an
internal device e.g. by libnet in which case skb protocol will be set to
ETH_ALL.

The motivation for this is that support for outputting to layer 3 (non-tap)
GRE tunnels as implemented by a subsequent patch depends on protocol being
set correctly in order to provide the protocol for the inner packet.
