with the current code, if a modification of the ip header is required
and the ip protocol is not one of tcp, udp or icmp - we err

This is done in purpose, and we don't want to allow offloading
this header re-write for unknown ip protocol

this flow specify the ip protocol (1 which is icmp)

but under your patch we will not err for unknown ip protocol

I have lost you

BTW - I plan to change the polarity of the check here with the below
patch - please see if it helps your use-case:

    net/mlx5e: Allow TC offload of IP header re-write for more protocols

    So far we allowed re-writing of IP header only for three protocols
    (tcp, udp and icmpv4). This is too limiting, e.g for cases where
    users want to apply offloading of NAT.

    Take a complimentary approach and allow this for wider set of IP
    protocols -- all of them except for three (icmpv6, sctp and udp-lite).
    For these protos the current HW isn't capable to properly adjust the
    l4 checksum while doing the modification <--- UPDATE - we probably
can do icmpv6
