  The route table treats sockaddr data as opaque, which means that the unused
  fields in the structure passed to rtalloc() MUST BE ZERO.
  The syncache code allocates a governing struct syncache structure which
  contains an embedded struct route, but it does not zero this structure.
  When used in a mixed IPV4/IPV6 environment, it is possible for a structure
  to be allocated for IPV4 whos unused fields for the route lookup (e.g.
  sin_port and sin_zero) may contain garbage.  This screws up the route
  table lookup and causes the wrong route to be returned.
  I believe the proper fix in this case is to rewrite the route table code,
  but since that would take a very long time the fix I am committing is
  to have tcp_rtlookup() zero out the sockaddr_in before it builds it for
  the rtalloc() call.
