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


From: David Bauer <mail@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 42f853b42899d9b445763b55c3c8adc72be0f0e1 ]

Drop the flow-hash of the skb when forwarding to the L2TP netdev.

This avoids the L2TP qdisc from using the flow-hash from the outer
packet, which is identical for every flow within the tunnel.

This does not affect every platform but is specific for the ethernet
driver. It depends on the platform including L4 information in the

One such example is the Mediatek Filogic MT798x family of networking
