Subject: [PATCH v4] xfrm: take net hdr len into account for esp payload size calculation

Corrects the function that determines the esp payload size. The calculations
done in esp{4,6}_get_mtu() lead to overlength frames in transport mode for
certain mtu values and suboptimal frames for others.

According to what is done, mainly in esp{,6}_output() and tcp_mtu_to_mss(),
net_header_len must be taken into account before doing the alignment
calculation.

Changes since v3:
* also fix ipv6

Changes since v2:
* rename l3_adj to net_adj
* fix indentation

Changes since v1:
* introduce l3_adj to preserve the same returned value as before for tunnel
  mode

For example:
* on ipv4 with md5 AH and 3des ESP (transport mode):
mtu = 1499 leads to FRAGFAILS
mtu = 1500 the addition of padding in the esp header could be avoided
* on ipv6 with md5 AH and twofish-sha1 ESP (transport mode):
mtu = 1491 leads to Ip6FragFails
mtu = 1499 padding can be avoided

For details on how the formula is established, see
https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/5/10/597

Tested with
* transport mode E
* transport mode EA
* transport mode E + ah
* tunnel mode E

Not tested with BEET, but it should be the same as transport mode

	"The wire packet format is identical to the ESP transport mode"
