[SRU][Bionic][PATCH 0/5] TC filters are broken on Mellanox after upstream stable updates (LP: #1842502)

Mellanox TC filters don't work for some key rules after the Bionic 4.15 stable patchset 2019-07-12 update (LP: #1836426). The offending commit is ("net/mlx5e: Set vlan masks for all offloaded TC rules").

This causes fatal network connectivity issues for projects that use the Mellanox ConnectX 5 NIC.

[Test Case]



Backport the following upstream commit (which fixes the offending commit) and its prerequisites:
d3a80bb5a3ea ("net/mlx5e: Don't match on vlan non-existence if ethertype is wildcarded")

[Regression Potential]

Low. Changes are isolated and limited to the mlx5_core driver and all commits are in upstream stable v4.19.y.

[Original description]

The following upstream fix was missing from the latest upstream stable update (LP: # and LP1839376: #1839213):


Or Gerlitz (4):
  net/mlx5e: Properly order min inline mode setup while parsing TC
  net/mlx5e: Get the required HW match level while parsing TC flow
  net/mlx5e: Always use the match level enum when parsing TC rule match
  net/mlx5e: Don't match on vlan non-existence if ethertype is

Saeed Mahameed (1):
  net/mlx5e: Remove redundant vport context vlan update
