The current behavior is *extremely* confusing, and should be fixed.
Currently, if you configure a kernel with both gif and ipip, the ipip
devices will be there, but the ipip protocol won't be in the inetsw
array, so incoming ipip traffic isn't handled!
I've meant to send-pr this, but now that you've brought up the issue,
I hope you will fix this.
