> To do this, the code uses newly added l3mdev_rcv() handler and an

> correct (IPvlan slave) interface and then IPtable-hook at LOCAL_INPUT
> to change the input device from master to the slave to complete the
> formality.
> Supporting stack changes are trivial changes to export symbol to get
> IPv4 equivalent code exported for IPv6 and to allow netfilter hook
> registration code to allow caller to hold RTNL. Please look into
> individual patches for details.

Series applied, thanks.
