[PATCH 4.18 021/197] erspan: set erspan_ver to 1 by default when adding an erspan dev




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

------------------

From: Xin Long <lucien.xin@xxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 84581bdae9587023cea1d139523f0ef0f28bd88d ]

After erspan_ver is introudced, if erspan_ver is not set in iproute, its
value will be left 0 by default. Since Commit 02f99df1875c ("erspan: fix
invalid erspan version."), it has broken the traffic due to the version
check in erspan_xmit if users are not aware of 'erspan_ver' param, like
using an old version of iproute.

To fix this compatibility problem, it sets erspan_ver to 1 by default
when adding an erspan dev in erspan_setup. Note that we can't do it in
ipgre_netlink_parms, as this function is also used by ipgre_changelink.

Fixes: 02f99df1875c ("erspan: fix invalid erspan version.")
