Yeah, PTYPE seems not suitable. I mean that replace SKB_DROP_REASON_PTYPE_ABSENT
that is used in __netif_receive_skb_core() with L3_PROTO, which means no L3
protocol handler (or other device handler) is not found for the
packet. This seems more
friendly and not code based.

Is this L4_PROTO followed by anyone?
