when trying to compile rte_mpls with pedantic enabled,
it will complain about bit field defintion.
error: type of bit-field 'bs' is a GCC extension [-Werror=pedantic]
error: type of bit-field 'tc' is a GCC extension [-Werror=pedantic]
error: type of bit-field 'tag_lsb' is a GCC extension [-Werror=pedantic]

This fixes the compilation error.

I tried to reproduce by adding to '-pedantic' to 'rte_net.c' (which uses
'rte_mpls.h') but not able to get the warning. Is this happen with specific
version of the compiler?

The struct size keeps same after change, do you know if this behavior is part of
standard and guaranteed?

I have the same fear.

Would it make sense to add __extension__ instead? We already do that
for gre, for instance.

Yes It happens only with old compilers, maybe I should have mentioned that in the commit log (my mistake).

To my understanding and please correct me if I'm wrong, the type of the bit fields shouldn't change the size of the structure,
As long as the bit order is kept the same, and I made a small test for it and checked the size of the struct it gave 4 bytes (sizeof()) with both definitions.

Yes I guess this can work as well,

You are probably right, however we saw some differences in the
behavior in specific conditions.
See https://patchwork.dpdk.org/patch/70458/ for instance.

Thanks for pointing me to this, I'll send a V2 having __extension__ instead then,
