Thanks for that device independent repro.

As expected, the following fixes it for these packets:

-       if (csum && skb_checksum_start(skb) < skb->data)
+       if (csum && skb->ip_summed == CHECKSUM_PARTIAL &&
+           skb_checksum_start(skb) < skb->data)

The question is whether we're doing the right thing when CHECKSUM_PARTIAL
is set.

Local checksum offload allows for cheap calculation of outer checksums, by
relying on the fact that the inner packet with the checksum field filled in will
sum to zero. It relies on checksum offload to compute this inner checksum,
so expects csum_start and csum_off to point after the GRE header.

If so, then the existing fix won't break correctly configured skbs as it only
drops packets for which this does not hold.
