Nope, it just means that 8139too doesn't provide ethtool handlers to
disable checksum offloading.

So I suggest that you try doing the tcpdump on the receive side as
that should show the real checksum.

BTW, the reason tcpdump only shows some packets with bogus checksums
is because it cuts packets off at 100 bytes by default so for most
packets it can't verify the checksum at all.  If you run it with
-s 1600 you should see bogus checksums on every packet with payload.

Cheers,
