net: remove redundant code in dev_hard_start_xmit()
This reverts commit 068a2de57ddf4f4 (net: release dst entry while cache-hot for GSO case too) Before GSO packet segmentation, we already take care of skb->dst if it can be released. There is no point adding extra test for every segment in the gso loop. Signed-off-by: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@google.com> Cc: Krishna Kumar <krkumar2@in.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
