This is not valid.

The kernel internally already validated the ipv4 header checksum
before forwarding or sending it on egress to the ipvlan device.

The driver can legitimately depend upon this validation.

Besides, as Cong pointed out, so much other code in the ipvlan
driver has read various ipv4 header members such as the addresses
necessary to perform lookups.
