This resolved the deref. Thanks.

for this item: drop_watch does not show any drops (i've disable all
other interfaces for clear env)
I will explain a little bit more the setup:
bnx2x device (under testing) is configured for RSS for IPGRE packets.
Sending multiple (3) TCP_STREAM causes ip_gre interface to disappear
packets (even ICMP).
This is not happening with single TCP_STREAM, or before gro_cell

i was searching for the drops by print-out in ip_gre.c but disappeared
packets completes this code:

static int ipgre_rcv(struct sk_buff *skb)
	        printk("%s:%d\n", __FUNCTION__, __LINE__);

                tstats = this_cpu_ptr(tunnel->dev->tstats);
                tstats->rx_bytes += skb->len;

                gro_cells_receive(&tunnel->gro_cells, skb);
                return 0;
