Subject: [PATCH] ipv6: Properly check reference count flag before taking reference

People are reporting that WireGuard experiences erratic crashes on 5.3,
and bisected it down to 7d30a7f6424e. Casually flipping through that
commit I noticed that a flag is checked using `|` instead of `&`, which in
this current case, means that a reference is never incremented, which
would result in the use-after-free users are seeing. This commit changes
the `|` to the proper `&` test.

Fixes: 7d30a7f6424e ("Merge branch 'ipv6-avoid-taking-refcnt-on-dst-during-route-lookup'")
