Any way we can avoid adding this to fast path, for people not using
macvtap and ixgbe ?
Likewise I'd rather see macvtap be responsible for fixing this up by
setting the transport header properly, and therfore sending well
formed packets to the rest of the stack.

Ok, haven't checked all other possibility but looks like packet needs to
be fixed also.

Daniel, could you post your patches if ready ?

Yes, will post them in a couple of minutes.

Jason, I believe you could reuse existing flow dissector once Daniel
patches are in.
