This patch is very welcome. I review it and found one oddity.

Why do you drop dst here ?

It seems strange, since this driver specifically masks out IFF_XMIT_DST_RELEASE
in its macvlan_setup() :

dev->priv_flags &= ~IFF_XMIT_DST_RELEASE;

If we really want to drop dst, it could be done by caller, if IFF_XMIT_DST_RELEASE
was not masked in macvlan_setup().
