Subject: [PATCH ipsec-next v3 0/2] xfrm: scalability enhancements for policy database

This patchset enables to hash more policies than just non-prefixed
ones: hash policies whose prefix lengths are greater or equal to
configurable thresholds.

These thresholds are configured via netlink message

The related iproute2 patch for configuring the thresholds is available
on demand.

Best Regards,
- change configuration API from proc to netlink
- initialize xfrm_policy_hthresh lock
- remove "rebuilding SPD hash table" log
- replace deprecated hlist_add_after by hlist_add_behind
- remove netlink reply to XFRM_MSG_NEWSPDINFO request
