Subject: [PATCH 0/5] net: Checksum offload changes - Part V

I am working on overhauling RX checksum offload. Goals of this effort

- Specify what exactly it means when driver returns CHECKSUM_UNNECESSARY
- Preserve CHECKSUM_COMPLETE through encapsulation layers
- Don't do skb_checksum more than once per packet
- Unify GRO and non-GRO csum verification as much as possible
- Unify the checksum functions (checksum_init)
- Simplify code

What is in this fifth patch set:

- Added GRO checksum validation functions
- Call the GRO validations functions from TCP and GRE gro_receive
- Perform checksum verification in the UDP gro_receive path using
  GRO functions and add support for gro_receive in UDP6

Please review carefully and test if possible, mucking with basic
checksum functions is always a little precarious :-)
