Subject: [PATCH v2] net/inet_lro: remove setting skb->ip_summed when not
	LRO-able

Subject: [PATCH] net/inet_lro: remove setting skb->ip_summed when not LRO-able

When an SKB cannot be chained to a session, the current code attempts
to "restore" its ip_summed field from lro_mgr->ip_summed. However,
lro_mgr->ip_summed does not hold the original value; in fact, we'd
better not touch skb->ip_summed since it is not modified by the code
in the path leading to a failure to chain it.
Also use a cleaer comment to the describe the ip_summed field of
struct net_lro_mgr.

Issue raised by Or Gerlitz <ogerlitz@...taire.com>
