Small typo in the subject line: implemente.

Ipvlan is a device of type ARPHRD_ETHER (ether_setup).

Tangential to this patch:

I checked that ipvlan_start_xmit indeed only expects packets with
skb->data at Ethernet header. ipvlan_queue_xmit checks

        if (unlikely(!pskb_may_pull(skb, sizeof(struct ethhdr))))
                goto out;

It may later call ipvlan_xmit_mode_l3 and ipvlan_get_L3_hdr, which
has such cases:

        case htons(ETH_P_IP): {
                u32 pktlen;
                struct iphdr *ip4h;
            
                if (unlikely(!pskb_may_pull(skb, sizeof(*ip4h))))
                        return NULL;

That pskb_may_pull should include the ethernet header. It gets
pulled for L3 mode in ipvlan_process_outbound, *after* the above.
