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
  http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-davie-stt-01

  Changes since the previous posting (v2) are noted in the patch's changelog.
  Primarily bug fixing and exercising previously unexercised code paths.

Further work:

  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?
