Looks odd.

is to be believed, then I'm not sure why you think iwlwifi is involved
though.

Either way, iwlwifi doesn't support HW checksumming, so it failing makes
no sense, it's not there to start with.

The only thing that touched this seems to be Tom's patch:

commit 7e3cead5172927732f51fde77fef6f521e22f209
Author: Tom Herbert <therbert@...gle.com>
Date:   Tue Jun 10 18:54:19 2014 -0700

    net: Save software checksum complete

but I'm not familiar enough to say where this leads.

If it's iwlwifi, then maybe that commit broke something with devices
that don't support checksumming?
