Subject: [PATCH] ipv6: gre: correct calculation of max_headroom

gre_hlen already accounts for sizeof(struct ipv6_hdr) + gre header,
so initialize max_headroom to zero. Otherwise the

	if (encap_limit >= 0) {
		max_headroom += 8;
		mtu -= 8;
	}

increments an uninitialized variable before max_headroom was reset.

Found with coverity: 728539
