But that means that all connections going over the same IPSEC path
hash to the same value.

I really think that xfrm_input() should zap the rxhash near the
existing nf_reset() call.

The same argument goes for tunnels, that is why ip_tunnel_core.c does
what it does with the rxhash clearing right now.

In both the IPSEC tunnel (not transport) and normal IP/GRE tunnel
cases, it's a completely new SKB receive, done via netif_rx(), after

That leaves only IPSEC transport mode as the only case where RFS isn't
(re-)performed but we can build infrastructure to make that happen.
