SubjectRe: [PATCH] gre: copy ToS/DiffServ bits to outer IP header
And the corresponding patch for iproute2.

>> When tunneling IP traffic with GRE this patch makes it possible to
>> export the ToS/DiffServ information to the outer IP header.
>> This is particularly useful in a scenario with ESP/AH where the inner
>> IP header is encrypted but the packet priority/DiffServ information
>> should still be respected by the transporting routers (for example in
>> an MPLS backbone network).
>>
>> The feature is disabled by default and can be enabled on a
>> per-interface basis (/proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/ethX/gre_copy_tos).
>>
>> Also does this bring Linux back in the game, as JunOS/IOS provide this
>> for quite some time:
>> http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/11_3/feature/guide/greqos.html
>> http://www.juniper.net/techpubs/software/junos/junos94/swconfig-services/configuring-a-gre-tunnel-to-copy-tos-bits-to-the-outer-ip-header.html
