Trying to parse the option of a SYN packet that we have
no route entry for should just use global wide defaults
for route entry options.

The tester has indicated that this doesn't solve things
for them. I suspect there is another dependency on 'dst'
not being NULL in another path somewhere.

So until this is fully resolved I'm holding off on applying
this patch.

Yes, indeed.

I managed to replicate it here. Looking into it right now.
