There are two possible ways this can happen:  The function m_copym
was called with off == 0, or off == m->m_len.  Neither is supposed
to happen (obviously) so the bug must be in ip_fragment.  Lets have
a look at that next...

Is this panic reproduceable?  What kind of traffic was going on
at that time?  Or was it right away when you started using the
GRE tunnel?

Could you please open a PR with this information too?  It helps
keeping track of the progress.
