net/sched: fix corrupted L2 header with MPLS 'push' and 'pop' actions

the following script:

 # tc qdisc add dev eth0 clsact
 # tc filter add dev eth0 egress protocol ip matchall \
 > action mpls push protocol mpls_uc label 0x355aa bos 1

causes corruption of all IP packets transmitted by eth0. On TC egress, we
can't rely on the value of skb->mac_len, because it's 0 and a MPLS 'push'
operation will result in an overwrite of the first 4 octets in the packet
L2 header (e.g. the Destination Address if eth0 is an Ethernet); the same
error pattern is present also in the MPLS 'pop' operation. Fix this error
in act_mpls data plane, computing 'mac_len' as the difference between the
network header and the mac header (when not at TC ingress), and use it in
MPLS 'push'/'pop' core functions.

v2: unbreak 'make htmldocs' because of missing documentation of 'mac_len'
    in skb_mpls_pop(), reported by kbuild test robot
