[ovs-dev] [PATCH net] openvswitch: take into account de-fragmentation in execute_check_pkt_len

ovs connection tracking module performs de-fragmentation on incoming
fragmented traffic. Take info account if traffic has been de-fragmented
in execute_check_pkt_len action otherwise we will perform the wrong
nested action considering the original packet size. This issue typically
occurs if ovs-vswitchd adds a rule in the pipeline that requires connection
tracking (e.g. OVN stateful ACLs) before execute_check_pkt_len action.

Fixes: 4d5ec89fc8d14 ("net: openvswitch: Add a new action check_pkt_len")
