Joe, it is my bad. Our nsh patches added two pointer variables to " struct
ovs_skb_cb", that increased its size by 16 bytes, but sk_buff.cb only has 48
bytes, when I build ovs with "--with-linux=..." option, sizeof(struct
ovs_gso_cb) will be over 48 bytes, that is the root cause of this build issue.
After I manage to remove those two pointer variables, it can be built
successfully. But sizeof(struct ovs_gso_cb) is still 48 bytes, obviously it
can't be extended any more in the future unless Linux kernel changes sk_buff.cb
to bigger size.

I'm surprised to see this; I regularly build master and branch-2.6 on Ubuntu
14.04 with linux 3.13 and 16.04 with linux 4.4.
Which kernel version are you seeing this with?
Can you also pastebin the $BUILD/datapath/linux/kcompat.h ?
