The MTU check in ip_vs_dr_xmit_v6() were missing a
check for skb_is_gso().

This e.g. caused issues for KVM IPVS setups, where different
Segmentation Offloading techniques are utilized, between guests,
via the virtio driver.  This resulted in very bad performance,
due to the ICMPv6 "too big" messages didn't affect the sender.

To Simon,
This should perhaps go to stable?
The patch is based on ipvs-next, but will apply on ipvs with an offset.
