These kernel data path patches are just for old kernels, so I strongly
suggest they can be applied to branch-2.9, I saw NSH update patches have
been in branch-2.9, OVS 2.9 will be the first release which can
completely support NSH both in userspace and kernel datapath if this
patch series can be applied, many people are expecting this :-),
especially Opendaylight guys.
Please let me know if you have any problem on applying them to
