Subject: [PATCH net] ip6_tunnel: set inner ipproto before ip6_tnl_encap.

ip6_tnl_encap assigns to proto transport protocol which
encapsulates inner packet, but we must pass to set_inner_ipproto
protocol of that inner packet.

Calling set_inner_ipproto after ip6_tnl_encap might break gso.
For example, in case of encapsulating ipv6 packet in fou6 packet, inner_ipproto 
would be set to IPPROTO_UDP instead of IPPROTO_IPV6. This would lead to
incorrect calling sequence of gso functions:
ipv6_gso_segment -> udp6_ufo_fragment -> skb_udp_tunnel_segment -> udp6_ufo_fragment
instead of:
ipv6_gso_segment -> udp6_ufo_fragment -> skb_udp_tunnel_segment -> ip6ip6_gso_segment
