>     xen-netfront: reset skb network header before checksum

So no response at all so far from the maintainers made me look into
this: I first thought what we need would be calls to
skb_probe_transport_header() in skb_checksum_setup_ip() after
each of the skb_maybe_pull_tail() functions. But
skb_partial_csum_set() already calls skb_set_transport_header(),
so I now think things ought to be fine without any change. Can
you clarify what you think is missing? Or is this an issue in just the
old (3.8.x) kernel you're using?

(In either case netback's xenvif_tx_submit() calling
skb_probe_transport_header() would seem pointless, as
skb_checksum_setup() - with or without a fix - ought to be taking
care of this anyway.)
