These encapsulated datagrams are routed to a destination host,
where they are decapsulated and further routed to their final destination.

This driver corresponds to RFC 2004.
Datagrams are encapsulated into IP with a shorter encapsulation.
IP header is modified and the modifications are inserted between the
