After push_nsh, the packet won't be recirculated to flow pipeline, so
key->eth.type must be set explicitly here, but for pop_nsh, the packet
will be recirculated to flow pipeline, it will be reparsed, so
key->eth.type will be set in packet parse function, we needn't handle it
in pop_nsh.

I have sent out v10 to fix all the comments for v9, please review v10,
thanks a lot.
