Thanks for sending a patch. I would appreciate it if it includes Geneve as well.

The number of bits is removed from the comments (v5).

Extra spaces removed.

In v5 all "rsvd" fields are renamed as "reserved".

I suggest leaving the vni as is (array of unsigned chars) since I do not see a gain by changing it to an integer of 24 bits.
If we did change - it will not turn VNI from network order to host order. So in case you wanted to print the VNI (host order) you will have to manipulate the bytes order anyway based on endianness. 
What do you think?

opts[] type changed to uint32_t  in v5.

Definitions RTE_GENEVE_TYPE_IPV4 and RTE_GENEVE_TYPE_IPV6 dropped (remaining with RTE_GENEVE_TYPE_ETH only).
