mpls: flow-based multipath selection
Change the selection of a multipath route to use a flow-based hash. This more suitable for traffic sensitive to reordering within a flow (e.g. TCP, L2VPN) and whilst still allowing a good distribution of traffic given enough flows. Selection of the path for a multipath route is done using a hash of: 1. Label stack up to MAX_MP_SELECT_LABELS labels or up to and including entropy label, whichever is first. 2. 3-tuple of (L3 src, L3 dst, proto) from IPv4/IPv6 header in MPLS payload, if present. Naturally, a 5-tuple hash using L4 information in addition would be possible and be better in some scenarios, but there is a tradeoff between looking deeper into the packet to achieve good distribution, and packet forwarding performance, and I have erred on the side of the latter as the default.
