The skge driver uses hardware receive checksum where it computes the sum
of the packet (but does not check it). This kind of problem happens when some
part of the call chain above it updates the packet but does not update the checksum.
A fix like the following is presumably needed for some part of this path.

bridge: correct IPv6 checksum after pull

Bridge multicast snooping of ICMPv6 would incorrectly report a checksum prob
when used with Ethernet devices like sky2 that use CHECKSUM_COMPLETE.
When bytes are removed from skb, the computed checksum needs to be adjusted.
