Subject: [PATCH net-next 2/4] net: mpls: change mpls_route layout

Move labels to the end of mpls_nh as a 0-sized array and within mpls_route
move the via for a nexthop after the mpls_nh. The new layout becomes:

   +----------------------+
   | mpls_route           |
   +----------------------+
   | mpls_nh 0            |
   +----------------------+
   | alignment padding    |   4 bytes for odd number of labels; 0 for even
   +----------------------+
   | via[rt_max_alen] 0   |
   +----------------------+
   | alignment padding    |   via's aligned on sizeof(unsigned long)
   +----------------------+
   | ...                  |
   +----------------------+
   | mpls_nh n-1          |
   +----------------------+
   | via[rt_max_alen] n-1 |
   +----------------------+

Memory allocated for nexthop + via is constant across all nexthops and
their via is based on the maximum number of labels across all nexthops and
the maximum via length. The size is saved in the mpls_route as rt_nh_size.
Accessing a nexthop becomes rt->rt_nh + index * rt->rt_nh_size.

The offset of the via address from a nexthop is saved as rt_via_offset
so that given an mpls_nh pointer the via for that hop is simply
nh + rt->rt_via_offset.

With prior code, memory allocated per mpls_route with 1 nexthop:
     via is a h/w address   - 64 bytes
     via is an ipv4 address - 64
     via is an ipv6 address - 72

With this patch set, memory allocated per mpls_route with 1 nexthop and
1 or 2 labels:
     via is a h/w address   - 56 bytes
     via is an ipv4 address - 56
     via is an ipv6 address - 64

The 8-byte reduction is due to the previous patch; the change introduced
by this patch has no impact on the size of allocations for 1 or 2 labels.

Performance impact of this change was examined using network namespaces
with veth pairs connecting namespaces. ns0 inserts the packet to the
label-switched path using an lwt route with encap mpls. ns1 adds 1 or 2
labels depending on test, ns2 (and ns3 for 2-label test) pops the label
and forwards. ns3 (or ns4) for a 2-label is the destination. Similar
series of namespaces used for 2-nexthop test.

Intent is to measure changes to latency (overhead in manipulating the
packet) in the forwarding path. Tests used netperf with UDP_RR.

IPv4:                     current   patches
   1 label, 1 nexthop      29908     30115
   2 label, 1 nexthop      29071     29612
   1 label, 2 nexthop      29582     29776
   2 label, 2 nexthop      29086     29149

IPv6:                     current   patches
   1 label, 1 nexthop      24502     24960
   2 label, 1 nexthop      24041     24407
   1 label, 2 nexthop      23795     23899
   2 label, 2 nexthop      23074     22959

In short, the change has no effect to a modest increase in performance.
This is expected since this patch does not really have an impact on routes
with 1 or 2 labels (the current limit) and 1 or 2 nexthops.
