xfrm: Assign the inner mode output function to the dst entry
As it is, we assign the outer modes output function to the dst entry when we create the xfrm bundle. This leads to two problems on interfamily scenarios. We might insert ipv4 packets into ip6_fragment when called from xfrm6_output. The system crashes if we try to fragment an ipv4 packet with ip6_fragment. This issue was introduced with git commit ad0081e4 (ipv6: Fragment locally generated tunnel-mode IPSec6 packets as needed). The second issue is, that we might insert ipv4 packets in netfilter6 and vice versa on interfamily scenarios. With this patch we assign the inner mode output function to the dst entry when we create the xfrm bundle. So xfrm4_output/xfrm6_output from the inner mode is used and the right fragmentation and netfilter functions are called. We switch then to outer mode with the output_finish functions.
