Keeping these functions in ipv4/route.c and ipv6/ip6_output.c along with ip_route_output_flow & ip6_dst_lookup_flow
These functions will be named ip_route_output_tunnel & ip6_dst_lookup_tunnel
 

Keeping these functions in ip_tunnels.c & ip6_tunnels.c is a bad idea as the bareudp module has no
Dependency with ipv4 & ipv6 tunnel module as of now and there is no need to create one.


Do you see any issues
If the above approach is not feasible we should fall back to ip_tunnel.h ip6_tunnel.h with proper #ifdef protection
