Subject: [PATCH net v2] wireguard: use tunnel helpers for decapsulating ECN markings

WireGuard currently only propagates ECN markings on tunnel decap according
to the old RFC3168 specification. However, the spec has since been updated
in RFC6040 to recommend slightly different decapsulation semantics. This
was implemented in the kernel as a set of common helpers for ECN
decapsulation, so let's just switch over WireGuard to using those, so it
can benefit from this enhancement and any future tweaks.

RFC6040 also recommends dropping packets on certain combinations of
erroneous code points on the inner and outer packet headers which shouldn't
appear in normal operation. The helper signals this by a return value > 1,
so also add a handler for this case.

Fixes: e7096c131e51 ("net: WireGuard secure network tunnel")

  - Don't log decap errors, and make sure they are recorded as frame errors,
    not length errors.
