xfrm_state lock protects its state, i.e., VALID/DEAD and statistics,
not the transforming procedure, as both mode/type output functions
are reentrant.

Another issue is state lock can be used in BH context when state timer
alarmed, after transformation in pktgen, update state statistics acquiring
state lock should disabled BH context for a moment. Otherwise LOCKDEP
critisize this:
