Subject[net-next] ipv6: sr: Extract the right key values for "seg6_make_flowlabel"
The seg6_make_flowlabel() is used by seg6_do_srh_encap() to compute the
flowlabel from a given skb. It relies on skb_get_hash() which eventually
calls __skb_flow_dissect() to extract the flow_keys struct values from
the skb.

In case of IPv4 traffic, calling seg6_make_flowlabel() after skb_push(),
skb_reset_network_header(), and skb_mac_header_rebuild() will results in
flow_keys struct of all key values set to zero.

This patch calls seg6_make_flowlabel() before resetting the headers of skb
to get the right key values.

Extracted Key values are based on the type inner packet as follows:
1) IPv6 traffic: src_IP, dst_IP, L4 proto, and flowlabel of inner packet.
2) IPv4 traffic: src_IP, dst_IP, L4 proto, src_port, and dst_port
3) L2 traffic: depends on what kind of traffic carried into the L2
frame. IPv6 and IPv4 traffic works as discussed 1) and 2)
