net: sctp: fix checksum marking for outgoing packets
Michał Mirosław [Wed, 13 Jul 2011 14:10:29 +0000 (14:10 +0000)]
Packets to devices without NETIF_F_SCTP_CSUM (including NETIF_F_NO_CSUM)
should be properly checksummed because the packets can be diverted or
rerouted after construction. This still leaves packets diverted from
NETIF_F_SCTP_CSUM-enabled devices with broken checksums. Fixing this
needs implementing software offload fallback in networking core.

For users of sctp_checksum_disable, skb->ip_summed should be left as
CHECKSUM_NONE and not CHECKSUM_UNNECESSARY as per include/linux/skbuff.h.
