Without this patch, we should type ip_proto for flower, but not for tc
protocol´╝î for example

[1]
tc filter add dev eth5_0 parent ffff: protocol ip prio 1 \
       flower skip_sw ip_proto icmp dst_ip 3.3.3.3 \
       action xxx

if we run tc without flower ip_proto, we get the err:
[2]
tc filter add dev eth5_0 parent ffff: protocol ip prio 1 \
       flower skip_sw  dst_ip 3.3.3.3 \
       action xxx

err log:
"can't offload re-write of ip proto 0"

with this patch, run the command [2], we will not get err log, and the
filter work in hw.
