This series contains a prototype implementation of STT for Open vSwitch.
This series consists of two patches:
* datapath: tunneling: Push vlan_set_tci() call into protocol handlers
This allows tunneling protocols to set the VLAN TCI to a non-zero
value and will be used by the implementation of STT.
* tunnelling: stt: Prototype Implementation
This patch implements STT, its changelog includes some commentary about
the state of the implementation. Review would be greatly appreciated - I
am sure there is ample room for improvement.
The implementation is based on the information available at
Changes since the previous posting (v2) are noted in the patch's changelog.
Primarily bug fixing and exercising previously unexercised code paths.
It seems to me that some changes are needed to the tunneling core code,
in particular handle_offloads(), to allow GSO skbs to be passed
unsegmented to STT. Perhaps a new mutable->flags flag is in order?
