Note that SFQ only stored the keys in case of a potential rehash,
and because skb->cb[] was available then.

As the rehash implies to _not_ use skb_get_hash() it is simply better to
recompute the flow key from packet, in the unlikely case we do have a
rehash.

Rehashing SFQ adds reorders, so people should think twice before using
it.
