Jesse Gross - Nov. 29, 2012, 6:35 p.m.
This series of improvements for 3.8/net-next contains four components:
 * Support for modifying IPv6 headers
 * Support for matching and setting skb->mark for better integration with
   things like iptables
 * Ability to recognize the EtherType for RARP packets
 * Two small performance enhancements

The movement of ipv6_find_hdr() into exthdrs_core.c causes two small merge
conflicts.  I left it as is but can do the merge if you want.  The conflicts
are:
 * ipv6_find_hdr() and ipv6_find_tlv() were both moved to the bottom of
   exthdrs_core.c.  Both should stay.
 * A new use of ipv6_find_hdr() was added to net/netfilter/ipvs/ip_vs_core.c
   after this patch.  The IPVS user has two instances of the old constant
   name IP6T_FH_F_FRAG which has been renamed to IP6_FH_F_FRAG.

The following changes since commit d04d382980c86bdee9960c3eb157a73f8ed230cc:

  openvswitch: Store flow key len if ARP opcode is not request or reply. (2012-10-30 17:17:09 -0700)

Pulled, thanks Jesse.

The merge conflict directions were particularly helpful.

If you ever do the merge yourself (I'm ambivalent about where you or I
do it), make sure you force the merge commit message to have a
description of the conflict resolution similarly to what you provided
here.

Thanks again.
