This would have fixed one problem, but everywhere
udp_tunnel_xmit_skb() (4, not 6) is called, iptunnel_xmit_stats is
called right after it, so there would have to be a modicum of patches
for all of these places too.

By the way, there's something else I noticed about this in dealing
with these functions: the return value of udp_tunnel_xmit_skb is
different from that of udp_tunnel6_xmit_skb. Nobody is using them
incorrectly, so far as I can see, but it is confusing that they return
different things. I had started to clean this up and send a patch, but
it got a bit invasive in drivers I shouldn't really touch. But if
somebody with a bit more top-down command of things wants to poke at
this, it's a low hanging fruit as far as I can see.

My pleasure.
