dropped:51610  so obviously  one cpu is fully loaded.

I believe performance problem might come from the
skb_set_queue_mapping(skb, 0); in __skb_tunnel_rx()

So all packets are queued into a single GRO queue, instead of being
split as intended in multiple queues.

I cant find why we must clear queue_mapping, so could you try :

diff --git a/include/net/dst.h b/include/net/dst.h
index 9a78810..4cb27df 100644
--- a/include/net/dst.h
+++ b/include/net/dst.h

 		skb->rxhash = 0;
-	skb_set_queue_mapping(skb, 0);
