I think this new static key is unnecessary, as it is equivalent
to: (udp_encap_needed + udpv6_encap_needed)

This socket lookup is very heavy handed, and I realize that you
need this because we no longer store the encapsulation socket in
skb->sk these days.

Can you talk about the various code paths that lead into the
flow dissector and why the UDP socket lookup is needed?  Maybe
we can propagate it another way, at least on TX.
