Subject: [PATCH] ipvlan: add the check of ip header checksum

The ip header checksum can be error in the following steps.
$ ip netns add ns1
$ ip link add gw link eth0 type ipvlan
$ ip addr add dev gw
$ ip link set dev gw up
$ ip link add ip1 link eth0 type ipvlan
$ ip link set ip1 netns ns1
$ ip netns exec ns1 ip link set ip1 up
$ ip netns exec ns1 ip addr add dev ip1
$ ip netns exec ns1 tc qdisc add dev ip1 root netem corrupt 50%
$ ip netns exec ns1 ping

The ip header of a packet maybe modified when it steps in
ipvlan_process_v4_outbound because of the netem, the corruptted
packets should be dropped.

Here I add the check of ip header to drop the corruptted packets
and to avoid a problem in some cases.
