I don't think there is a recent change that did this.

Walter says < 4.14 is ok, so this is likely related to flow cache removal.

F.e. it looks like all prefixed policies end up in a linked list
(net->xfrm.policy_inexact) and are not even in a hash table.

I am staring at b58555f1767c9f4e330fcf168e4e753d2d9196e0
but can't figure out how to configure that away from the
'no hashing for prefixed policies' default or why we even have
policy_inexact in first place :/

I'll look at this again tomorrow.
