net/sched: act_tunnel_key: fix memory leak in case of action replace

running the following TDC test cases:

 7afc - Replace tunnel_key set action with all parameters
 364d - Replace tunnel_key set action with all parameters and cookie

it's possible to trigger kmemleak warnings like:

  unreferenced object 0xffff94797127ab40 (size 192):
  comm "tc", pid 3248, jiffies 4300565293 (age 1006.862s)
  hex dump (first 32 bytes):

when the tunnel_key action is replaced, the kernel forgets to release the
dst metadata: ensure they are released by tunnel_key_init(), the same way
it's done in tunnel_key_release().
