Subject: [PATCH net 3/5] wireguard: implement header_ops->parse_protocol for AF_PACKET

WireGuard uses skb->protocol to determine packet type, and bails out if
it's not set or set to something it's not expecting. For AF_PACKET
injection, we need to support its call chain of:

    packet_sendmsg -> packet_snd -> packet_parse_headers ->
      dev_parse_header_protocol -> parse_protocol

Without a valid parse_protocol, this returns zero, and wireguard then
rejects the skb. So, this wires up the ip_tunnel handler for layer 3
packets for that case.
