Would it make sense to perform this within __iptunnel_pull_header (in
case raw_proto is true) for all __iptunnel_pull_header callers?

If not (meaning vxlan specific), in next few lines we have:

	if (!raw_proto) {
		if (!vxlan_set_mac(vxlan, vs, skb))
			goto drop;
	} else {
		skb->dev = vxlan->dev;
		skb->pkt_type = PACKET_HOST;
	}

Seems more appropriate to place the missing 'skb_reset_mac_header'
within the "else" part, which logically holds all "things to initialize
in the skb if raw_proto is true, thus havn't called vxlan_set_mac".

Regards,
Shmulik
