3.19.8-ckt16 -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Alexander Duyck <aduyck@xxxxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 461547f3158978c180d74484d58e82be9b8e7357, since
we lack the flow dissector flags in this release we guard the
flow label access using a test on 'skb' being NULL ]

This patch fixes an issue with unaligned accesses when using
eth_get_headlen on a page that was DMA aligned instead of being IP aligned.
The fact is when trying to check the length we don't need to be looking at
the flow label so we can reorder the checks to first check if we are
supposed to gather the flow label and then make the call to actually get

v2: Updated path so that either STOP_AT_FLOW_LABEL or KEY_FLOW_LABEL can
cause us to check for the flow label.
