Subject: [PATCH net-next 0/5] flower: match on the number of vlan tags


Our customers in the fiber telecom world have network configurations
where they would like to control their traffic according to the number
of tags appearing in the packet.

For example, TR247 GPON conformance test suite specification mostly
talks about untagged, single, double tagged packets and gives lax
guidelines on the vlan protocol vs. number of vlan tags.

This is different from the common IT networks where 802.1Q and 802.1ad
protocols are usually describe single and double tagged packet. GPON
configurations that we work with have arbitrary mix the above protocols
and number of vlan tags in the packet.

The following patch series implement number of vlans flower filter. They
add num_of_vlans flower filter as an alternative to vlan ethtype protocol
matching. The end result is that the following command becomes possible:

tc filter add dev eth1 ingress flower \
  num_of_vlans 1 vlan_prio 5 action drop

More about the patch series:
  - patches 1-2 remove duplicate code by introducing is_key_vlan
  - patch 3, 4 implement num_of_vlans in the dissector and in the
  - patch 5 uses the num_of_vlans filter to allow further matching on
    vlan attributes.

Complementary iproute2 patches are being sent separately.


Boris Sukholitko (5):
  Helper function for vlan ethtype checks
  Reduce identation after is_key_vlan refactoring
  Add number of vlan tags dissector
  Add number of vlan tags filter to the flower
  Consider the number of vlan tags for vlan filters
