gso: Update tunnel segmentation to support Tx checksum offload



This change makes it so that the GRE and VXLAN tunnels can make use of Tx
checksum offload support provided by some drivers via the hw_enc_features.
Without this fix enabling GSO means sacrificing Tx checksum offload and
this actually leads to a performance regression as shown below:

            Utilization
            Send
Throughput  local         GSO
10^6bits/s  % S           state
  6276.51   8.39          enabled
  7123.52   8.42          disabled

To resolve this it was necessary to address two items.  First
netif_skb_features needed to be updated so that it would correctly handle
the Trans Ether Bridging protocol without impacting the need to check for
Q-in-Q tagging.  To do this it was necessary to update harmonize_features
so that it used skb_network_protocol instead of just using the outer
protocol.

Second it was necessary to update the GRE and UDP tunnel segmentation
offloads so that they would reset the encapsulation bit and inner header
offsets after the offload was complete.

As a result of this change I have seen the following results on a interface
with Tx checksum enabled for encapsulated frames:

            Utilization
            Send
Throughput  local         GSO
10^6bits/s  % S           state
  7123.52   8.42          disabled
  8321.75   5.43          enabled

v2: Instead of replacing refrence to skb->protocol with
    skb_network_protocol just replace the protocol reference in
    harmonize_features to allow for double VLAN tag checks.
