That's important information! I updated the changelog and added the
Cc:stable, thanks.


Full patch for netdev benefit:


From: Samuel Thibault <samuel.thibault@ens-lyon.org>

Just like ip_fast_csum, the assembly snippet in csum_ipv6_magic needs a
memory clobber, as it is only passed the address of the buffer, not a
memory reference to the buffer itself.

This caused failures in Hurd's pfinetv4 when we tried to compile it with
gcc-4.3 (bogus checksums).
