Just FYI: Such a comparison with kernel-libipsec is probably not that
meaningful; our libipsec backend is relatively new and didn't yet get
any performance optimizations. This might have some impact, especially
with many SAs.

No, these patches are not part of 5.1.0. Try 5.1.1rc1 [1], it should
contain all the changes.

Seems that they are missing. Anyway, also check that you set the
appropriate mark options, as seen in the merge commit at [2].
