Subject: [patch net-next 3/3] ipv6: check propagates sk in sk_mc_loop instead of skb->sk

In the dst->output() path for ip6tunnel_xmit, the code assumes the skb
it has to transmit is attached to an inet socket, specifically via
ip6_finish_output2(): The sk_mc_loop() test triggers a WARN_ON() when the
provider of the packet is an AF_PACKET socket.
