Indeed, your suggestion works and is simpler and less risky.
Thank you for your help.

I also think that I am making a mistake by only popping the tag when
GRO is enabled.  My fear is that something will become confused when
skb->dev->features contains NETIF_F_HW_VLAN_RX, but the tag is not
decap'ed.  So I will remove the check for NETIF_F_GRO when popping
the vlan tag.

Thanks,

Drew
