net: don't clear IFF_XMIT_DST_RELEASE in ether_setup
d88733150 introduced the IFF_SKB_TX_SHARING flag, which I unilaterally set in ether_setup. In doing this I didn't realize that other flags (such as IFF_XMIT_DST_RELEASE) might be set prior to calling the ether_setup routine. This patch changes ether_setup to or in SKB_TX_SHARING so as not to inadvertently clear other existing flags.
