Thanks for letting me know. I'll try to repro and will look if this is
common behavior for all virtual drivers, or simply a bug in WireGuard
that I need to address.

If it is the latter, your patch below isn't quite correct; we'll
probably address this instead by simply setting skb->protocol in xmit
by peaking at the header, if skb->protocol is zero, and then keeping
the rest of the logic the same elsewhere.
