The 4900M doesn't do GRE in hardware.

Potentially the Cisco 4900M.  I can't find specifically about the GRE
support however.  My google-fu just finds discussion about v4 to v6
tunnels in software.  The chassis has 8 built-in ports and two expansion
modules that can each do another 4 TenG ports in a not-oversubscribed
configuration.
