tunnel: Clear IPCB(skb)->opt before dst_link_failure called

IPCB may contain data from previous layers (in the observed case the
qdisc layer). In the observed scenario, the data was misinterpreted as
ip header options, which later caused the ihl to be set to an invalid
value (<5). This resulted in an infinite loop in the mips implementation
of ip_fast_csum.

This patch clears IPCB(skb)->opt before dst_link_failure can be called for
various types of tunnels. This change only applies to encapsulated ipv4

The code introduced in 11c21a30 which clears all of IPCB has been removed
to be consistent with these changes, and instead the opt field is cleared
unconditionally in ip_tunnel_xmit. The change in ip_tunnel_xmit applies to
SIT, GRE, and IPIP tunnels.

The relevant vti, l2tp, and pptp functions already contain similar code for
clearing the IPCB.
