Okay, I'll look at fixing this. I suspect we want to maintain
CHECKSUM_COMPLETE as long as possible in UDP receive path (or any
other encap path) and not be converting to CHECKSUM_UNNECESSARY.  When
crossing  the encapsulation layer we'll need to deal with
skb->encapsulation and CHECKSUM_UNNECESSARY.

Note to HW vendors: can you please start providing the full packet
checksum (CHECKSUM_COMPLETE) and stop perpetuating the extremely
protocol specific, restrictive checksum validation!
