Subject: [PATCH 1/4] virtio_net: Fix skb->csum_start computation

From: Mark McLoughlin <markmc@...hat.com>

hdr->csum_start is the offset from the start of the ethernet
header to the transport layer checksum field. skb->csum_start
is the offset from skb->head.

skb_partial_csum_set() assumes that skb->data points to the
ethernet header - i.e. it computes skb->csum_start by adding
the headroom to hdr->csum_start.

Since eth_type_trans() skb_pull()s the ethernet header,
skb_partial_csum_set() should be called before
eth_type_trans().

(Without this patch, GSO packets from a guest to the world outside the
host are corrupted).
