> This patch series is meant to be applied after:
> [PATCH v7 net-next 00/16] ipv6: Enable GUEoIPv6 and more fixes for v6 tunneling
> The first patch addresses an issue we already resolved in the GREv4 and is
> now present in GREv6 with the introduction of FOU/GUE for IPv6 based GRE
> tunnels.
> The second patch goes through and enables IPv6 tunnel offloads for the Intel
> NICs that already support the IPv4 based IP-in-IP tunnel offloads.  I have
> only done a bit of touch testing but have seen ~20 Gb/s over an i40e
> interface using a v4-in-v6 tunnel, and I have verified IPv6 GRE is still
> passing traffic at around the same rate.  I plan to do further testing but
> with these patches present it should enable a wider audience to be able to
> test the new features introduced in Tom's patchset with hardware offloads.

Series applied, thanks Alex.
