You can read the ip6_tnl_err(). when the message is NDISC_REDIRECT, the
rel_msg is assigned to 0, then 

 561         if (rel_msg == 0)
 562                 return 0;

the function ip4ip6_err() return directly. so even though you add "break;"
statement for this case, the redirect message will not be handled.

Because the Redirect Message is sent to tunnel entry-point, so the target address in
Redirect ICMPv6 Message is an ipv6 address, then we could not run the ipv4 dst_ops 
redirect handler here.
