Subject: [Patch net] gre: refetch erspan header from skb->data after pskb_may_pull()

After pskb_may_pull() we should always refetch the header
pointers from the skb->data in case it got reallocated.

In gre_parse_header(), the erspan header is still fetched
from the 'options' pointer which is fetched before

Found this during code review of a KMSAN bug report.

Fixes: cb73ee40b1b3 ("net: ip_gre: use erspan key field for tunnel lookup")
