parent[IPSEC]: Separate inner/outer mode processing on output (diff)
[IPSEC]: Separate inner/outer mode processing on input
With inter-family transforms the inner mode differs from the outer mode. Attempting to handle both sides from the same function means that it needs to handle both IPv4 and IPv6 which creates duplication and confusion. This patch separates the two parts on the input path so that each function deals with one family only. In particular, the functions xfrm4_extract_inut/xfrm6_extract_inut moves the pertinent fields from the IPv4/IPv6 IP headers into a neutral format stored in skb->cb. This is then used by the inner mode input functions to modify the inner IP header. In this way the input function no longer has to know about the outer address family.
