Thanks for testing. Dave, please take this patch instead, it avoids
having to guess whether a packet originates from bridging in IP
netfilter by using DST_NOXFRM for bridge-netfilter's fake dst_entry.
[NETFILTER]: Fix bridge netfilter related in xfrm_lookup

The bridge-netfilter code attaches a fake dst_entry with dst->ops == NULL
to purely bridged packets. When these packets are SNATed and a policy
lookup is done, xfrm_lookup crashes because it tries to dereference
dst->ops.

Change xfrm_lookup not to dereference dst->ops before checking for the
DST_NOXFRM flag and set this flag in the fake dst_entry.
