ipv4: Sanitize and simplify ip_route_{connect,newports}()
These functions are used together as a unit for route resolution during connect(). They address the chicken-and-egg problem that exists when ports need to be allocated during connect() processing, yet such port allocations require addressing information from the routing code. It's currently more heavy handed than it needs to be, and in particular we allocate and initialize a flow object twice. Let the callers provide the on-stack flow object. That way we only need to initialize it once in the ip_route_connect() call. Later, if ip_route_newports() needs to do anything, it re-uses that flow object as-is except for the ports which it updates before the route re-lookup. Also, describe why this set of facilities are needed and how it works in a big comment. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net> Reviewed-by: Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com>
