Kernel update 4.4.132 enables log_ecn_error in sit module by default now, syslog spam
 
For various network tunnel users, HE, openvpn...

Updated to kernel 4.4.132, rebooted, saw syslog spam:

Turns out the default for sit module option log_ecn_error is now enabled by default.

sit is loaded for use with Hurricane Electric IPv6 tunnels, and openvpn tunnels.

Can be temporarily disabled by:
echo N > /sys/module/sit/parameters/log_ecn_error

Permanent fix:
echo "options sit log_ecn_error=0" > /etc/modprobe.d/sit.conf
