I'm not sure I really got this. IPv6/IPv4 means IPv6 inner, IPv4 outer, right? 
Isn't that called from xfrm4_output_one and subsequently passed through the 
right filters as well (as it has a ipv4 header by then)?

Couldn't this be solved just by ending the inner loop in case of beet mode (as 
it is done for tunnel)?
