Please hold onto this.  I've got a more generic version of this
that doesn't duplicate the inter-family logic between BEET mode
and tunnel mode.

Instead I've created a generic function that reads info from the
inner header and puts them in an address-neutral format which is
then picked up by either BEET or tunnel mode.

Cheers,
