Subject: [PATCH] gre: copy ToS/DiffServ bits to outer IP header

When tunneling IP traffic with GRE this patch makes it possible to export the
ToS/DiffServ information to the outer IP header. This is particularly useful in
a scenario with ESP/AH where the inner IP header is encrypted but the packet
priority/DiffServ information should still be respected by the transporting
routers (for example in an MPLS backbone network).

The feature is disabled by default and can be enabled on per-interface basis.
The flag is stored in an unused bit of ip_tunnel_parm.o_flags, and can be
modified through the rntl_link interface.

Also does this bring Linux back in the game, as JunOS/IOS provide this for
quite some time:
