    Subject[patch 15/33] Fix netpoll UDP input path
    -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

    From: Aubrey.Li <>

    Netpoll UDP input handler needs to pull up the UDP headers
    and handle receive checksum offloading properly just like
    the normal UDP input path does else we get corrupted

    [NET]: Fix UDP checksum issue in net poll mode.

    In net poll mode, the current checksum function doesn't consider the
    kind of packet which is padded to reach a specific minimum length. I
    believe that's the problem causing my test case failed. The following
    patch fixed this issue.
