{ipv4,xfrm}: Introduce xfrm_tunnel_notifier for xfrm tunnel mode callback
Some thoughts on IPv4 VTI implementation: The connection between VTI receiving part and xfrm tunnel mode input process is hardly a "xfrm_tunnel", xfrm_tunnel is used in places where, e.g ipip/sit and xfrm4_tunnel, acts like a true "tunnel" device. In addition, IMHO, VTI doesn't need vti_err to do something meaningful, as all VTI needs is just a notifier to be called whenever xfrm_input ingress a packet to update statistics. A IPsec protected packet is first handled by protocol handlers, e.g AH/ESP, to check packet authentication or encryption rightness. PMTU update is taken care of in this stage by protocol error handler. Then the packet is rearranged properly depending on whether it's transport mode or tunnel mode packed by mode "input" handler. The VTI handler code takes effects in this stage in tunnel mode only. So it neither need propagate PMTU, as it has already been done if necessary, nor the VTI handler is qualified as a xfrm_tunnel. So this patch introduces xfrm_tunnel_notifier and meanwhile wipe out vti_err code. Signed-off-by: Fan Du <fan.du@windriver.com> Cc: Steffen Klassert <steffen.klassert@secunet.com> Cc: David S.
