[ovs-dev] [PATCH OvS 0/4] Offload MPLS actions to TC datapath

Recent additions to TC in the Linux kernel includes an action module that
allows MPLS packet manipulation.

Update the OvS TC API to allow OvS datapath MPLS actions to be converted
and offloaded to a TC datapath.

Actions converted include set, push and pop. TC also offers a decrement
TTL MPLS action, however, OvS handles this by matching on a TTL value and
doing a set on the MPLS header to a TTL value one below. Therefore, this
action is convered by 'set' offloads without having to be explicitly

John Hurley (4):
  compat: add compatibility headers for tc mpls action
  ovs-tc: offload MPLS pop actions to TC datapath
  ovs-tc: offload MPLS push actions to TC datapath
  ovs-tc: offload MPLS set actions to TC datapath
