OK this is definitely broken.  We should never touch the dst lock in
softirq context.  Since inet6_destroy_sock may be called from that
context due to the asynchronous nature of sockets, we can't take the
lock there.

In fact this sk_dst_reset is totally redundant since all IPv6 sockets
use inet_sock_destruct as their socket destructor which always cleans
up the dst anyway.  So the solution is to simply remove the call.
