Agreed. I don't mean to add a vxlan specific flag.

Instead, a way to identify that the encapsulation includes a mac
header. To a certain extent, that already exists as of commit
58dfc900faff ("bpf: add layer 2 encap support to
bpf_skb_adjust_room"). That computes an inner_maclen. It makes sense
that inner_protocol needs to be updated if inner_maclen indicates a
mac header.

I would only not infer it based on some imprecise measure, such as
inner_maclen being 14. But add a new explicit flag
BPF_F_ADJ_ROOM_ENCAP_L2_ETH. Update inner protocol if the flag is
passed and inner_maclen >= ETH_HLEN. Fail the operation if the flag is
passed and inner_maclen is too short.
