I was a bit surprised that the skb has no dst_entry attached.
But in the reported case, ip6_frag_queue() removes the dst_entry
explicitly on all but the last received fragments. And unlike the
ipv4 case, it does not restore it before ip6_expire_frag_queue()
calls icmpv6_send().

I'm currently testing the patch below. Meelis, could you please
check if this patch fixes your problems?

Unfortunately I'm off without network access for the whole day
tomorrow. So in case the patch fixes the problems, I'd integrate it
into the final ipsec pull request for this release cycle on friday.


Subject: [PATCH] xfrm: Fix null pointer dereference when decoding sessions

On some codepaths the skb does not have a dst entry
when xfrm_decode_session() is called. So check for
a valid skb_dst() before dereferencing the device
interface index. We use 0 as the device index if
there is no valid skb_dst(), or at reverse decoding
we use skb_iif as device interface index.

Bug was introduced with git commit bafd4bd4dc
("xfrm: Decode sessions with output interface.").
