Indeed, must have been resolved by the merge of net into net-next which
happened on Saturday? Regardless, would you mind reposting? There is no
way for me to retry the patchwork checks.

And one more thing..

What's the thinking on silently ignoring unsupported flags on set
rather than rejecting? I feel like these days we lean towards explicit
rejects.

The mask could you be used here.

Just to double check - is the expectation that the value returned is
completely opaque to the user space? The defines in question are not
part of uAPI.
