Subject: [PATCH net v2] net: Fixed updating of ethertype in skb_mpls_push()

From: Martin Varghese <>

The skb_mpls_push was not updating ethertype of an ethernet packet if
the packet was originally received from a non ARPHRD_ETHER device.

In the below OVS data path flow, since the device corresponding to
port 7 is an l3 device (ARPHRD_NONE) the skb_mpls_push function does
not update the ethertype of the packet even though the previous
push_eth action had added an ethernet header to the packet.


Fixes: 8822e270d697 ("net: core: move push MPLS functionality from OvS to core helper")
Signed-off-by: Martin Varghese <>
Changes in v2:
    Changed the subject line of patch.
