This should be fixed by:

    bf250a1fa769 ("ipv6: Partial checksum only UDP packets")

Have you tested it?

I think this disables HW checksumming that Vlad's patch enabled.  As
Vlad pointed out in another similar thread [1], the two bits are
mutually exclusive, so you can't have

    (dev->features & NETIF_F_V6_CSUM) == NETIF_F_V6_CSUM

Maybe.  But I just tried this, and it doesn't work with qemu's e1000
emulation (could be a driver/qemu problem, I can't check with other
devices).
