Subject: [PATCH net] Revert "ipv6: Allow for partial checksums on non-ufo
 packets"

From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@...gle.com>

Wolfgang Walter reported crashes using traceroute6, root caused to this
commit.

UDP packets can be sent from RAW sockets.

Note that the faulty commit addressed a non problem, as normal
UDP v6 packets use udp_v6_send_skb() which correctly setup
CHECKSUM_PARTIAL properly if device has the correct feature.

It seems not worth trying to 'fix' the raw path.

Fixes: 32dce968dd98 ("ipv6: Allow for partial checksums on non-ufo packets")
