The IP/ROHC tunnel takes whatever IP packet coming on the virtual
network interface it created, compresses them with the ROHC library and
encapsulates them in IP packets. The tunnel does not generate the
original IP packets, they are created and sent by any application that
sends its traffic to the virtual network interface of the tunnel.
