net-next commit 145c7a793838 ("ipv6: make mc_forwarding atomic")

I didn't find a good way to handle this. So either we introduce the
auto-patch-before build stuff again or we allow minimal changes like this
which are not in sync with upstream.

I will try to have a look at ways how we can (with our build_tests):

* filter out everything with UGLY_HACK + everything between
  UGLY_HACK_OLD + UGLY_HACK_STOP before comparing it with upstream
* have some automatic warning in case someone adds code to linux-merge.git
  with UGLY_HACK in it
