Okay, by running netperf in background, disabling autoconf, and
turning off RPS/RFS I'm able to get ipv4_dst_check to come up in perf;
but t's not nearly as bad as what you've reported though, only about
1.5%. When I applied path to move rt_genid to different cacheline
ipv4_dst_check goes away (ipv4: move rt_genid to different cache
line). Can you try this patch in your setup?
