Subject[PATCH 4.11 031/115] vlan: Fix tcp checksum offloads in Q-in-Q vlans
Date
4.11-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Vlad Yasevich <vyasevich@gmail.com>


[ Upstream commit 35d2f80b07bbe03fb358afb0bdeff7437a7d67ff ]

It appears that TCP checksum offloading has been broken for
Q-in-Q vlans. The behavior was execerbated by the
series
commit afb0bc972b52 ("Merge branch 'stacked_vlan_tso'")
that that enabled accleleration features on stacked vlans.

However, event without that series, it is possible to trigger
this issue. It just requires a lot more specialized configuration.

The root cause is the interaction between how
netdev_intersect_features() works, the features actually set on
the vlan devices and HW having the ability to run checksum with
longer headers.

The issue starts when netdev_interesect_features() replaces
NETIF_F_HW_CSUM with a combination of NETIF_F_IP_CSUM | NETIF_F_IPV6_CSUM,
if the HW advertises IP|IPV6 specific checksums. This happens
for tagged and multi-tagged packets. However, HW that enables
IP|IPV6 checksum offloading doesn't gurantee that packets with
arbitrarily long headers can be checksummed.

This patch disables IP|IPV6 checksums on the packet for multi-tagged
packets.
