  Log Message:
  ofproto-dpif-xlate: Fix load balancing for select groups with MPLS.

Before this commit, OVS did not do load balancing for select group buckets
in case of mpls tagged packets.  After an MPLS pop action, the expectation
is to trigger recirculation.  This recirculation will ensure an RSS
re-computation which will ensure load balancing in case of select group
bucket.   Due to a missing return statement before bucket selection, the
bucket selection in case of select group happens before the recirculation
and hence no load balancing is achieved.
