Subject: [PATCH net] net: be more gentle about silly gso requests coming from user

Recent change in virtio_net_hdr_to_skb() broke some packetdrill tests.

When --mss=XXX option is set, packetdrill always provide gso_type & gso_size
for its inbound packets, regardless of packet size.

	if (packet->tcp && packet->mss) {
		if (packet->ipv4)
			gso.gso_type = VIRTIO_NET_HDR_GSO_TCPV4;
		else
			gso.gso_type = VIRTIO_NET_HDR_GSO_TCPV6;
		gso.gso_size = packet->mss;
	}

Since many other programs could do the same, relax virtio_net_hdr_to_skb()
to no longer return an error, but instead ignore gso settings.

This keeps Willem intent to make sure no malicious packet could
reach gso stack.

Note that TCP stack has a special logic in tcp_set_skb_tso_segs()
to clear gso_size for small packets.

Fixes: 6dd912f82680 ("net: check untrusted gso_size at kernel entry")
