    Reading this stuff again, I wonder if we should not revert commit
    17762060c25590bfddd and use a different trick

    bridge: Clear IPCB before possible entry into IP stack

    The bridge protocol lives dangerously by having incestuous relations
    with the IP stack. In this instance an abomination has been created
    where a bogus IPCB area from a bridged packet leads to a crash in
    the IP stack because it's interpreted as IP options.

    This patch papers over the problem by clearing the IPCB area in that
    particular spot. To fix this properly we'd also need to parse any
    IP options if present but I'm way too lazy for that.

    We could have a padding in front of struct br_input_skb_cb to make sure
    we dont overwrite IP (4|6) CB in bridge ?
