ipv6: protect skb->sk accesses from recursive dereference inside the stack
[ Upstream commit f60e5990d9c1424af9dbca60a23ba2a1c7c1ce90 ] We should not consult skb->sk for output decisions in xmit recursion levels > 0 in the stack. Otherwise local socket settings could influence the result of e.g. tunnel encapsulation process. ipv6 does not conform with this in three places: 1) ip6_fragment: we do consult ipv6_npinfo for frag_size 2) sk_mc_loop in ipv6 uses skb->sk and checks if we should loop the packet back to the local socket 3) ip6_skb_dst_mtu could query the settings from the user socket and force a wrong MTU Furthermore: In sk_mc_loop we could potentially land in WARN_ON(1) if we use a PF_PACKET socket ontop of an IPv6-backed vxlan device. Reuse xmit_recursion as we are currently only interested in protecting tunnel devices.
