Both ipip and gre do this:

dev->hard_header_len = LL_MAX_HEADER + sizeof(struct iphdr);



which explains it. It is a bug in the REJECT target, but I was
wondering whether you were really seeing this. It looks like
it makes sense to add GRE to the MAX_HEADER case above though.

Thanks. Dave, please apply this patch.

[NETFILTER]: ipt_REJECT: fix memory corruption

On devices with hard_header_len > LL_MAX_HEADER ip_route_me_harder()
reallocates the skb, leading to memory corruption when using the stale
tcph pointer to update the checksum.
