Note: this is a resubmission; it has been retested for an extended
period of time. In addition I checked upstream patches around the code
for bugfixes.

SRU Justification:

Impact:
Users of the 3.5/3.8 kernel will have poor network throughput when using
OpenStack Neutron depending on their setup.

Fix:
These upstream patches are necessary to fix the issue:

f45a5c267da35174e22cec955093a7513dc1623d

Testcase:
Setup OpenStack Neutron. Test throughput between internal and external
nodes.

The following explains an example vlan+namespace configuration:
Internal Node: [10.x.x.2]->eth2.123->br123->tap123->qr-123[10.x.x.1]
<--- netns: qrouter-123
netns: qrouter-123 --->
qg-234[10.x.y.1]->tap234->br234->eth2.234->External Node[10.x.y.2]
Where:
1) tap123+qr-123 and tap234+qg-234 are veth pairs
2) qr-123 and qg-234 reside inside the qrouter-123 namespace
