We have git for changelogs, please don't add to this.

This doesn't seem to handle encapsulated transport mode packets.
In that case xfrm4_rcv_encap returns the negative decapsulated
protocol number, you change it to a positive number again:

and then continue to process it as UDP. What should happen in
that case is that the negative protocol value is returned to
ip_local_deliver_finish.
