Subject: [PATCH v4.14.x] net: erspan: fix use-after-free

When building the erspan header for either v1 or v2, the eth_hdr()
does not point to the right inner packet's eth_hdr,
causing kasan report use-after-free and slab-out-of-bouds read.

The patch fixes the following syzkaller issues:
[1] BUG: KASAN: slab-out-of-bounds in erspan_xmit+0x22d4/0x2430 net/ipv4/ip_gre.c:735
[2] BUG: KASAN: slab-out-of-bounds in erspan_build_header+0x3bf/0x3d0 net/ipv4/ip_gre.c:698

[4] BUG: KASAN: use-after-free in erspan_build_header+0x3bf/0x3d0 net/ipv4/ip_gre.c:698

Commit b423d13c08a6 ("net: erspan: fix use-after-free") fixed the
use-after-free. The root-cause change (commit 84e54fe0a5ea ("gre:
introduce native tunnel support for ERSPAN")) made it into 4.14.

Thus, the fix needs to be backported to 4.14 as well.

    This should *only* go into 4.14.
