-stable maintainers, please consider the following two upstream
commits for inclusion in upcoming v3.0.x [1] stable releases:

v3.0.8 plus this:

upstream commit b73233960a59ee66e09d642f13d0592b13651e94
(ipv4: fix ipsec forward performance regression)

increases IPSec fwding performance from 0.2kpps to ~3.5kpps.

Adding this:

upstream commit aa1c366e4febc7f5c2b84958a2dd7cd70e28f9d0
(net: Handle different key sizes between address families in flow
cache)

to that, brings it back up to 2.6.38 levels, i.e., ~44kpps.

note that for v2.6.39.4 (.39 is the first kernel version with the
40->0.2kpps regression), commit b732339 depends on a slew of
commits, presumably ending with commit 5e2b61f: ipv4: Remove flowi
from struct rtable.

However it appears commit aa1c366e alone will restore almost all
the performance (~42kpps) on that kernel version.

So to summarize, please cherry-pick:

v2.6.39.x: aa1c366: net: Handle different key sizes between address families in flow cache
v3.0.x: aa1c366: net: Handle different key sizes between address families in flow cache
v3.0.x: b732339: ipv4: fix ipsec forward performance regression
v3.1.x: b732339: ipv4: fix ipsec forward performance regression

[All figures are based on a p2020ds board configured to rx, encrypt
and forward 64-byte packets.]

Thanks,

Kim
