Are you refering to this code in ip_nat_fn()?

        /* If we had a hardware checksum before, it's now invalid */
        if ((*pskb)->ip_summed == CHECKSUM_HW)
                if (skb_checksum_help(*pskb, (out == NULL)))
                        return NF_DROP;

Doing incremental updates should work fine. This is something
I wanted to take care of at some point, but didn't get to it
