Oops :) the [1] addendum should be:

[1] https://lore.kernel.org/netdev/20210128105201.7c6bed82@kicinski-fedora-pc1c0hjn.dhcp.thefacebook.com/T/#mda7265b2e57b52bdab863f286efa85291cf83822

Since this is in the cover letter I don't think v2 is needed.
Please let me know if you'd like me to resend.

Cheers,
 Nik
