This skb is just allocated by netvsc, the skb->network_header is not set yet.

Windows networking team told me that the flags above indicate host side
already verified the checksum. Online doc is here:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/drivers/network/indicating-coalesced-segments
If the NIC or miniport driver validates the TCP and IPv4 checksums but does not recompute them for the coalesced segment, it must set the TcpChecksumValueInvalid and IpChecksumValueInvalid flags in the NDIS_TCP_IP_CHECKSUM_NET_BUFFER_LIST_INFO structure. Additionally, in this case the NIC or miniport driver may optionally zero out the TCP and IPv4 header checksum values in the segment.

The NIC and miniport driver must always set the IpChecksumSucceeded and TcpChecksumSucceeded flags in the NDIS_TCP_IP_CHECKSUM_NET_BUFFER_LIST_INFO structure before indicating the coalesced segment.

Thanks,
