Roi Dayan Nov. 6, 2019, 7:34 a.m. UTC
In kernels older than 4.8, struct tcf_t didn't have the firstuse.
If openvswitch is compiled with the compat pkt_cls.h then there is
a struct size mismatch between openvswitch and the kernel which cause
parsing netlink actions to fail.
After this commit parsing the netlink actions pass even if compiled with
the compat pkt_cls.h.

Notes:
    v2->v3:
    - use AC_CHECK_MEMBER macro instead of AC_COMPILE_IFELSE
    
    v1->v2:
    - fix mix of tabs and spaces in acinclude.m4
