[TCP]: rare bad TCP checksum with 2.6.19
Jarek Poplawski [Wed, 24 Jan 2007 06:07:12 +0000 (22:07 -0800)]
The patch "Replace CHECKSUM_HW by CHECKSUM_PARTIAL/CHECKSUM_COMPLETE"
changed to unconditional copying of ip_summed field from collapsed
skb. This patch reverts this change.

The majority of substantial work including heavy testing
and diagnosing by: Michael Tokarev <mjt@tls.msk.ru>
Possible reasons pointed by: Herbert Xu and Patrick McHardy.
