Hash Suite for Android: free password hash cracker in your pocket

Subject: [PATCH 1/7] ipv4: Simplify output route creation call sequence.


There's a lot of redundancy and unnecessary stack frames
in the output route creation path.

1) Make __mkroute_output() return error pointers.

2) Eliminate ip_mkroute_output() entirely, made possible by #1.

3) Call __mkroute_output() directly and handling the returning error
   pointers in ip_route_output_slow().
