> Two unrelated changes in this patchset:
> - In patch #1, convert mirror tests from using ping directly to generating
>   ICMP packets by mausezahn. Using ping in tests is error-prone, because
>   ping is too smart. On a flaky system (notably in a simulator), when
>   packets don't come quickly enough, more pings are sent, and that throws
>   off counters. This was worked around in the past by just pinging more
>   slowly, but using mausezahn avoids the issue as well without making the
>   tests unnecessary slow.
> - A missing stats_update callback was recently added to act_pedit. Now that
>   iproute2 supports JSON dumping for pedit, extend in patch #2 the
>   pedit_dsfield selftest with a check that would have caught the fact that
>   the callback was missing.

Series applied, thanks.
