One too many tabs there on that last line :-)

Also, I would say that this checksum test should come first, because
that takes priority since you could be testing the ACK bit of a
corrupted packet.

Better to get the statistic bump on the bad checksum then a silent
drop on the ACK being cleared.

And that is effectively what is going to happen in this case since
the caller has already done the checksum checks.

Thanks.
