Subject: incorrect cksum with tcp/udp on lo with 2.6.20/2.6.21/2.6.22

Hello,

It seems that after some not very recent changes udp and tcp packes 
carring data send by a loopback have incorrect cksum:

UDP:
# echo test|nc -u 127.0.0.1 1111

# tcpdump -i lo -n -v -v port 1111
tcpdump: listening on lo, link-type EN10MB (Ethernet), capture size 96 bytes
19:43:39.340576 IP (tos 0x0, ttl  64, id 15179, offset 0, flags [DF], proto: UDP (17), length: 33) 127.0.0.1.49512 > 127.0.0.1.1111: [bad udp cksum 174c!] UDP, length 5

TCP:
# echo test|nc -u 127.0.0.1 1111

tcpdump: listening on lo, link-type EN10MB (Ethernet), capture size 96 bytes
