Merge branch 'csums-next'
Tom Herbert says: ==================== net: Checksum offload changes - Part VI I am working on overhauling RX checksum offload. Goals of this effort are: - Specify what exactly it means when driver returns CHECKSUM_UNNECESSARY - Preserve CHECKSUM_COMPLETE through encapsulation layers - Don't do skb_checksum more than once per packet - Unify GRO and non-GRO csum verification as much as possible - Unify the checksum functions (checksum_init) - Simplify code What is in this sixth patch set: - Clarify the specific requirements of devices returning CHECKSUM_UNNECESSARY (comments in skbuff.h). - Add csum_level field to skbuff. This is used to express how many checksums are covered by CHECKSUM_UNNECESSARY (stores n - 1). - Change __skb_checksum_validate_needed to "consume" each checksum as indicated by csum_level as layers of the the packet are parsed. - Remove skb_pop_rcv_encapsulation, no longer needed in the new csum_level model. - Allow GRO path to "consume" checksums provided in CHECKSUM_UNNECESSARY and to report new verfied checksums for use in normal path fallback. - Add proper support to SCTP to accept CHECKSUM_UNNECESSARY to validate header CRC. - Modify drivers to set skb->csum_level instead of setting skb->encapsulation to indicate validation of an encapsulated checksum on receive. v2: Allocate a new 16 bits for flags in skbuff. Please review carefully and test if possible, mucking with basic checksum functions is always a little precarious :-) ==================== Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <email@example.com>
