...which is indeed the case. Sorry, I guess I'm too much focused on
VXLAN-GPE nowadays and I missed that we're building this before the
inner Ethernet header.
But the point stands, we have much greater problems here than VXLAN.
And I don't think that wrapping all IP address accesses into
get/put_unaligned all around the stack is the solution.
