This is a very inefficient routine that does the checksumming. The
linux checksum is very much more powerful and quicker. However this
gives you the general idea. Note that if you are going to checksum
a checksummed packet that includes the checksum, you have to compliment
the output. Also note that this works ONLY for an even number of bytes.


unsigned short int chksum(char *buffer, int len)
{
unsigned short int *word;
unsigned long accum;
unsigned long chksm;
int i;

accum = 0;
word = (unsigned short *) buffer;
len >>=1; /* Words only */
for(i=0; i< len; i++)
accum += (unsigned long) *word++;
chksm = (accum & 0xffff); /* Mask all but low word */
chksm += (accum >> 16); /* Sum all the carries */
if(chksm > 0xffff) /* If this also carried */
chksm++; /* Sum this too */
return (unsigned short) (chksm & 0xffff);

}
