  datapath: Add support for kernel 4.16.x & 4.17.x

Add support for kernel version up to 4.17.x. On Travis, build passed
for all kernel versions. And no new test fails are introduced by this
patch.

Cleaned up file datapath/linux/compat/include/net/ip6_fib.h which
has no effect to kernel module but brings complexity to porting.

  Log Message:
  -----------
  system-tests: Extend tests of simulated packets to kernel 4.17.x

GRE-related tests are skipped on ubuntu-18.04.1 because the
vanilla `ip` will fail to set dev's mac address. This bug
is described in this link:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1550097

This patch enables GRE tests to run even if the buggy `ip`
is being used.
