Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.14 4/8] vxlan: Add needed_headroom for lower device

From: Sven Eckelmann <sven@...fation.org>

[ Upstream commit 0a35dc41fea67ac4495ce7584406bf9557a6e7d0 ]

It was observed that sending data via batadv over vxlan (on top of
wireguard) reduced the performance massively compared to raw ethernet or
batadv on raw ethernet. A check of perf data showed that the
vxlan_build_skb was calling all the time pskb_expand_head to allocate
enough headroom for:

  min_headroom = LL_RESERVED_SPACE(dst->dev) + dst->header_len
  		+ VXLAN_HLEN + iphdr_len;

But the vxlan_config_apply only requested needed headroom for:

  lowerdev->hard_header_len + VXLAN6_HEADROOM or VXLAN_HEADROOM

So it completely ignored the needed_headroom of the lower device. The first
caller of net_dev_xmit could therefore never make sure that enough headroom
was allocated for the rest of the transmit path.
