Subject: [PATCH net] ipv6: refresh rt6i_genid in ip6_pol_route()

From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@...gle.com>

While tracking IPv6 poor performance, I found that IPv6 early demux
was broken in recent kernels. perf profiles show inet6_sk_rx_dst_set()
being called for every incoming TCP segment :

  20.95%      netserver  [kernel.kallsyms]    [k] dst_release     
  19.33%      netserver  [kernel.kallsyms]    [k] ip6_pol_route
  11.75%      netserver  [kernel.kallsyms]    [k] inet6_sk_rx_dst_set
   3.72%      netserver  [kernel.kallsyms]    [k] ip6_input_finish

Regression came in linux-3.6 with commit 6f3118b571b8 ("ipv6: use
net->rt_genid to check dst validity")

When a route found in ip6_pol_route() is cloned (either using
rt6_alloc_cow() or rt6_alloc_clone()), copy gets an updated rt6i_genid.

But when original route is selected, we need to refresh its rt6i_genid
that could be obsolete. If we do not refresh rt6i_genid, ip6_dst_check()
will fail.
