Subject[PATCH 4.14 143/496] batman-adv: invalidate checksum on fragment reassembly
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Matthias Schiffer <mschiffer@universe-factory.net>

[ Upstream commit 3bf2a09da956b43ecfaa630a2ef9a477f991a46a ]

A more sophisticated implementation could try to combine fragment checksums
when all fragments have CHECKSUM_COMPLETE and are split at even offsets.
For now, we just set ip_summed to CHECKSUM_NONE to avoid "hw csum failure"
warnings in the kernel log when fragmented frames are received. In
consequence, skb_pull_rcsum() can be replaced with skb_pull().

Note that in usual setups, packets don't reach batman-adv with
CHECKSUM_COMPLETE (I assume NICs bail out of checksumming when they see
batadv's ethtype?), which is why the log messages do not occur on every
system using batman-adv. I could reproduce this issue by stacking
batman-adv on top of a VXLAN interface.
