Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 5.13 034/189] net/sched: cls_api: increase max_reclassify_loop
Date
From: Davide Caratti <dcaratti@redhat.com>

[ Upstream commit 05ff8435e50569a0a6b95e5ceaea43696e8827ab ]

modern userspace applications, like OVN, can configure the TC datapath to
"recirculate" packets several times. If more than 4 "recirculation" rules
are configured, packets can be dropped by __tcf_classify().
Changing the maximum number of reclassifications (from 4 to 16) should be
sufficient to prevent drops in most use cases, and guard against loops at
the same time.
