Eric, probably I missed something, but since the same test as in
skb_copy_and_csum_dev() gave different result a bit earlier on exactly
the same skb, I've suspected some sharing (or use after free)
problems, so I'm not sure your current diagnose can explain this.
(Unless this old test was dismissed later.)

Thanks,
