Subject[PATCH 4.18 036/135] net/mlx5e: Set vlan masks for all offloaded TC rules
4.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Jianbo Liu <>

[ Upstream commit cee26487620bc9bc3c7db21b6984d91f7bae12ae ]

In flow steering, if asked to, the hardware matches on the first ethertype
which is not vlan. It's possible to set a rule as follows, which is meant
to match on untagged packet, but will match on a vlan packet:
tc filter add dev eth0 parent ffff: protocol ip flower ...

To avoid this for packets with single tag, we set vlan masks to tell
hardware to check the tags for every matched packet.

Fixes: 095b6cfd69ce ('net/mlx5e: Add TC vlan match parsing')
