I think this check on inner_protocol isn't really semantically correct
- that field is a union with inner_ipproto, so it would be more
correct to check against that and then you wouldn't need to use htons
either.

I don't know if we need to have the check at all for IPIP though -
after all the driver doesn't expose support for it all (actually it
doesn't expose GRE either). This raises kind of an interesting
question about the checks though - it's pretty easy to add support to
the driver for a new GSO type (and I imagine that people will be
adding GRE soon) and forget to update the check.

I guess if you want to be nice, it might be good to check the
equivalent IP protocol types as well.
