Subject: [PATCH net] net: openvswitch: ensure LSE is pullable before reading it

when openvswitch is configured to mangle the LSE, the current value is
read from the packet dereferencing 4 bytes at mpls_hdr(): ensure that
the label is contained in the skb "linear" area.

Found by code inspection.

Fixes: d27cf5c59a12 ("net: core: add MPLS update core helper and use in OvS")
