Hi Eli

Good optimization.

Thanks.

Please see comment below...

The check here is only for exact match in ethertype field (in vlan header too).

But for the next flows with empty mask on ethertype:
Eth / ipv4
Eth / vlan/ ipv4

The optimization is not on.

Maybe need to zero the match on ethertype in IPV4 translate?

Same for IPV6 below...
