ip_tunnel: Fix a memory corruption in ip_tunnel_xmit
Steffen Klassert [Tue, 1 Oct 2013 09:33:59 +0000 (11:33 +0200)]
[ Upstream commit 3e08f4a72f689c6296d336c2aab4bddd60c93ae2 ]

We might extend the used aera of a skb beyond the total
headroom when we install the ipip header. Fix this by
calling skb_cow_head() unconditionally.

Bug was introduced with commit c544193214
("GRE: Refactor GRE tunneling code.")
