Subject: [PATCH 1/4] ibmveth: Enable TCP checksum offload


This patchset enables TCP checksum offload support for IPV4
on ibmveth. This completely eliminates the generation and checking of
the checksum for packets that are completely virtual and never
touch a physical network. A simple TCP_STREAM netperf run on
a virtual network with maximum mtu set yielded a ~30% increase
in throughput. This feature is enabled by default on systems that
support it, but can be disabled with a module option.
