src: fix sub-byte protocol header definitions
Update bitfield definitions to match according to the way they are expressed in RFC and IEEE specifications. This required a bit of update for c3f0501 ("src: netlink_linearize: handle sub-byte lengths"). >From the linearize step, to calculate the shift based on the bitfield offset, we need to obtain the length of the word in bytes: len = round_up(expr->len, BITS_PER_BYTE); Then, we substract the offset bits and the bitfield length. shift = len - (offset + expr->len); From the delinearize, payload_expr_trim() needs to obtain the real offset through: off = round_up(mask->len, BITS_PER_BYTE) - mask_len; For vlan id (offset 12), this gets the position of the last bit set in the mask (ie. 12), then we substract the length we fetch in bytes (16), so we obtain the real bitfield offset (4). Then, we add that to the original payload offset that was expressed in bytes: payload_offset += off; Note that payload_expr_trim() now also adjusts the payload expression to its real length and offset so we don't need to propagate the mask expression.
