So the code from vport-gre.c got moved into ip_gre.c and ipgre_fb_dev_create()
got exported with the only user being ovs vport-gre ?!
Then the proper commit message should say 'move ovs specific gre bits
to ip_gre.c', since the only way to use it is to create ovs vport-gre.
Instead, can you please do it similar to Thomas's vxlan patch so that
such gre tunnel can actually be usable outside of ovs?
