MPLS: Add limited GSO support



In the case where a non-MPLS packet is received and an MPLS stack is
added it may well be the case that the original skb is GSO but the
NIC used for transmit does not support GSO of MPLS packets.

The aim of this code is to provide GSO in software for MPLS packets
whose skbs are GSO.

SKB Usage:

When an implementation adds an MPLS stack to a non-MPLS packet it should do
the following to skb metadata:

* Set skb->inner_protocol to the old non-MPLS ethertype of the packet.
  skb->inner_protocol is added by this patch.

* Set skb->protocol to the new MPLS ethertype of the packet.

* Set skb->network_header to correspond to the
  end of the L3 header, including the MPLS label stack.

I have posted a patch, "[PATCH v3.29] datapath: Add basic MPLS support to
kernel" which adds MPLS support to the kernel datapath of Open vSwtich.
That patch sets the above requirements in datapath/actions.c:push_mpls()
and was used to exercise this code.  The datapath patch is against the Open
vSwtich tree but it is intended that it be added to the Open vSwtich code
present in the mainline Linux kernel at some point.

Features:

I believe that the approach that I have taken is at least partially
consistent with the handling of other protocols.  Jesse, I understand that
you have some ideas here.  I am more than happy to change my implementation.

This patch adds dev->mpls_features which may be used by devices
to advertise features supported for MPLS packets.

A new NETIF_F_MPLS_GSO feature is added for devices which support
hardware MPLS GSO offload.  Currently no devices support this
and MPLS GSO always falls back to software.

Alternate Implementation:

One possible alternate implementation is to teach netif_skb_features()
and skb_network_protocol() about MPLS, in a similar way to their
understanding of VLANs. I believe this would avoid the need
for net/mpls/mpls_gso.c and in particular the calls to
__skb_push() and __skb_push() in mpls_gso_segment().

I have decided on the implementation in this patch as it should
not introduce any overhead in the case where mpls_gso is not compiled
into the kernel or inserted as a module.

MPLS GSO suggested by Jesse Gross.
