Subject: [PATCH bpf 0/2] Fix the classification based on port ranges in bpf hook

When I tried a test based on the selftest program for BPF flow dissector
(, I observed unexpected result as below:

$ tc filter add dev lo parent ffff: protocol ip pref 1337 flower ip_proto \
	udp src_port 8-10 action drop
$ tools/testing/selftests/bpf/test_flow_dissector -i 4 -f 9 -F
pkts: tx=10 rx=10

The last rx means the number of received packets. I expected rx=0 in this
test (i.e., all received packets should have been dropped), but it resulted
in acceptance.

Although the previous commit 8ffb055beae5 ("cls_flower: Fix the behavior
using port ranges with hw-offload") added new flag and field toward filtering
based on port ranges with hw-offload, it missed applying for BPF flow dissector
then. As a result, BPF flow dissector currently stores data extracted from
packets in incorrect field used for exact match whenever packets are classified
by filters based on port ranges. Thus, they never match rules in such cases
because flow dissector gives rise to generating incorrect flow keys.

This series fixes the issue by replacing incorrect flag and field with new 
ones in BPF flow dissector, and adds a test for filtering based on specified
port ranges to the existing selftest program.
