Subject: [PATCH] ip_tunnel: fix kernel panic with icmp_dest_unreach

commit a622260254ee481747cceaaa8609985b29a31565 upstream.

Daniel Petre reported crashes in icmp_dst_unreach() with following call
graph:

Daniel found a similar problem mentioned in
 http://lkml.indiana.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1007.0/00961.html

And indeed this is the root cause : skb->cb[] contains data fooling IP
stack.

We must clear IPCB in ip_tunnel_xmit() sooner in case dst_link_failure()
is called. Or else skb->cb[] might contain garbage from GSO segmentation
layer.

A similar fix was tested on linux-3.9, but gre code was refactored in
linux-3.10. I'll send patches for stable kernels as well.

Many thanks to Daniel for providing reports, patches and testing !
