Thanks Ling.

Note that I was more interested by the case we read more fields per
cache line, like we do in tcp lookups. (skc_daddr, skc_rcv_saddr,
skc_bound_dev_if, skc_net).

I made changes to net-next to prepare your patch.

You'll have to move both skc_rxhash & skc_portpair before the

I have to fix an endianness sparse problem, I'll send a patch for this
in a separate thread right now.
