If you make this change, did you see any drop in a live test? The
"packet->total_bytes" in struct hv_netvsc_packet  is for book keeping 
only, which is used for stats info, and not visible by the host at all.

I made this suggestion because the "regular" vlan packet length was 
counted by bytes without the VLAN_HLEN(4) -- the vlan tag is 
in the skb metadata, separately from the ethernet header. I want the 
statistical data for AF_PACKET mode consistent with the regular case.

struct hv_netvsc_packet {
        /* Bookkeeping stuff */
        u8 cp_partial; /* partial copy into send buffer */

        u8 rmsg_size; /* RNDIS header and PPI size */
        u8 rmsg_pgcnt; /* page count of RNDIS header and PPI */
        u8 page_buf_cnt;

        u16 q_idx;
        u16 total_packets;

        u32 total_bytes;
        u32 send_buf_index;
        u32 total_data_buflen;
};
