If dev->hard_header_len is zero, the packet socket will not reserve
room for the link layer header, so skb->data points to network_header.
But I don't see any uninitialized packet data?

Agreed. Xie has made similar changes to lapbether recently in
commit c7ca03c216ac.

Unrelated to this patch, I do wonder if ipgre_header does the
right thing when tunnel->hlen > sizeof(gre_base_hdr),
i.e., for gre tunnels with optional fields.

Currently it appears to not initialize those.
