[Xen-devel] [PATCH] xen-netfront: reset skb transport header before checksum

In ed1f50c3a ("net: add skb_checksum_setup") some checksum functions
were introduced in core. Subsequent change b5cf66cd1 ("xen-netfront:
use new skb_checksum_setup function") made use of those functions to
replace its own implementation. With that change ip_hdr() and tcp_hdr()
were not pointing at the right place. d554f73df ("xen-netfront: reset
skb network header before checksum") fixed the ip_hdr().

This patch fixes tcp_hdr().

We saw this problem when LRO was enabled on the host and it results in
netfront setting skb->ip_summed to CHECKSUM_UNNECESSARY.
