Subject: [PATCH net] openvswitch: Fix ovs_flow_key_update()

ovs_flow_key_update() is called when the flow key is invalid, and it is
used to update and revalidate the flow key. Commit 329f45bc4f19
("openvswitch: add mac_proto field to the flow key") introduces mac_proto
field to flow key and use it to determine whether the flow key is valid.
However, the commit does not update the code path in ovs_flow_key_update()
to revalidate the flow key which may cause BUG_ON() on execute_recirc().
This patch addresses the aforementioned issue.

Fixes: 329f45bc4f19 ("openvswitch: add mac_proto field to the flow key")
