[ovs-discuss] gso packet is failing with af_packet socket with packet_vnet_hdr

Hi,
I am wondering if anyone can help me with this. I am having trouble to send
tso/gso packet
with af_packet socket with packet_vnet_hdr (through virtio_net_hdr) over
vxlan tunnel in OVS.

What I observed that, the following function eventually hitting and is
returning false (net/core/skbuff.c), hence the packet is dropping.
static inline bool skb_gso_size_check(const struct sk_buff *skb,
                                      unsigned int seg_len,
                                      unsigned int max_len) {
        const struct skb_shared_info *shinfo = skb_shinfo(skb);
        const struct sk_buff *iter;
        if (shinfo->gso_size != GSO_BY_FRAGS)
                return seg_len <= max_len;
        ..........
}
[  678.756673] ip_finish_output_gso:235 packet_length:2762 (here
packet_length = skb->len - skb_inner_network_offset(skb))
[  678.756678] ip_fragment:510 packet length:1500
[  678.756715] ip_fragment:510 packet length:1314
[  678.956889] skb_gso_size_check:4474 and seg_len:1550 and max_len:1500
and shinfo->gso_size:1448 and GSO_BY_FRAGS:65535

Observation:
When we send the large packet ( example here is packet_length:2762), its
showing the seg_len(1550) > max_len(1500). Hence return seg_len <= max_len
statement returning false.
Because of this, ip_fragment calling icmp_send(skb, ICMP_DEST_UNREACH,
ICMP_FRAG_NEEDED, htonl(mtu)); rather the code reaching to
ip_finish_output2(sk, skb)
function in net/ipv4/ip_output.c and is given below:

static int ip_finish_output_gso(struct sock *sk, struct sk_buff *skb,
                                unsigned int mtu)
{
        netdev_features_t features;
        struct sk_buff *segs;
        int ret = 0;

        /* common case: seglen is <= mtu */
        if (skb_gso_validate_mtu(skb, mtu))
                return ip_finish_output2(sk, skb);
       ...........
      err = ip_fragment(sk, segs, mtu, ip_finish_output2);
      ...........
 }

But when we send normal iperf traffic ( gso/tso  traffic) over vxlan, the
skb_gso_size_check returning a true value, and ip_finish_output2 getting
executed.
Here is the values of normal iperf traffic over vxlan.

[ 1041.400537] skb_gso_size_check:4477 and seg_len:1500 and max_len:1500
and shinfo->gso_size:1398 and GSO_BY_FRAGS:65535
[ 1041.400587] skb_gso_size_check:4477 and seg_len:1450 and max_len:1450

[ 1041.400594] skb_gso_size_check:4477 and seg_len:1500 and max_len:1500

[ 1041.400732] skb_gso_size_check:4477 and seg_len:1450 and max_len:1450

and shinfo->gso_size:1398 and GSO_BY_FRAGS:65535

Can someone help me to solve what is missing, and where should I modify the
code in OVS/ or outside of ovs, so that it works as expected.

Thanks in advance.
