dst: Metadata destinations



Introduces a new dst_metadata which enables to carry per packet metadata
between forwarding and processing elements via the skb->dst pointer.

The structure is set up to be a union. Thus, each separate type of
metadata requires its own dst instance. If demand arises to carry
multiple types of metadata concurrently, metadata dst entries can be
made stackable.

The metadata dst entry is refcnt'ed as expected for now but a non
reference counted use is possible if the reference is forced before
queueing the skb.

In order to allow allocating dsts with variable length, the existing
dst_alloc() is split into a dst_alloc() and dst_init() function. The
existing dst_init() function to initialize the subsystem is being
renamed to dst_subsys_init() to make it clear what is what.

The check before ip_route_input() is changed to ignore metadata dsts
and drop the dst inside the routing function thus allowing to interpret
metadata in a later commit.
