Subject[PATCH 5.1 082/121] s390/qeth: handle limited IPv4 broadcast in L3 TX path
Date
[ Upstream commit 72c87976c5abbf8a834ad85f10d03c0cd58b985c ]

When selecting the cast type of a neighbourless IPv4 skb (eg. on a raw
socket), qeth_l3 falls back to the packet's destination IP address.
For this case we should classify traffic sent to 255.255.255.255 as
broadcast.
This fixes DHCP requests, which were misclassified as unicast
(and for IQD interfaces thus ended up on the wrong HW queue).
