Subject: [PATCH net-next v2 0/7] net: unify dst caching for tunnel devices

This patch series try to unify the dst cache implementations currently
present in the kernel, namely in ip_tunnel.c and ip6_tunnel.c, introducing a
new generic implementation, replacing the existing ones, and then using
the new implementation in other tunnel devices which currently lack it.

The new dst implementation is compiled, as built-in, only if any device using
it is enabled.

Caching the dst for the tunnel remote address gives small, but measurable,
performance improvement when tunneling over ipv4 (in the 2%-4% range) and
significant ones when tunneling over ipv6 (roughly 60% when no
fragmentation/segmentation take place and the tunnel local address
is not specified).

v2:
- move the vxlan dst_cache usage inside the device lookup functions
- fix usage after free for lwt tunnel moving the dst cache storage inside
  the dst_metadata,
- sparse codying style cleanup

Paolo Abeni (7):
  net: add dst_cache support
  net: replace dst_cache ip6_tunnel implementation with the generic one
  ip_tunnel: replace dst_cache with generic implementation
  net: use dst_cache for vxlan device
  net: add dst_cache to ovs vxlan lwtunnel
  geneve: add dst caching support
  net/ipv4: add dst cache support for gre lwtunnels
