    SubjectRe: [PATCH 05/17] Blackfin: convert to generic checksum code
    I missed your mail last week and only now stumbled over it after Linus
    has pulled my tree.

    Mostly good, but needs some improvements. At least it helped me
    track down the last problem.

    When I tried running it on x86-64, it only showed failures for
    numbers 1, 2 and 4. I fixed them with this patch:
    lib/checksum: fix one more thinko

    When do_csum gets unaligned data, we really need to treat
    the first byte as an even byte, not an odd byte, because
    we swap the two halves later.

    Found by Mike's checksum-selftest module.

    do_csum is really an internal function. IMHO we should better check
    csum_partial(), ip_fast_csum(), csum_fold(), csum_tcpudp_magic()
    and ip_compute_csum(), or at least a subset of them.

    You mixed up do_csum_data2 and do_csum_data3, so they will always
    show up as incorrect. Also, the expected checksum is endian-dependent.
    The test module should either be modified to expect 0xffff to be
    returned in every case, or should use le16_to_cpu(0x0020) etc.
