    We want the check to fail to detect mis-programmed eeproms. The
    checksum test isn't conclusive, but it does provide an indication
    something is wrong.

    The assumption is that the eeprom was programmed correctly in
    manufacturing, so your nics were 1) mis-programmed during manufacturing,
    or 2) modified later using some tool. Follow-up with
    linux.nics@intel.com to make sure 1) isn't the case.
