Subject: RE: [PATCH] xen-netfront: reset skb transport header before checksum

Yes, I missed the IPv6 case. ;-) Thanks Eric for pointing that out.
Looking further the below commit might have already resolved the issue.

    net: core: let skb_partial_csum_set() set transport header

    For untrusted packets with partial checksum, we need to set the transport he
    for precise packet length estimation. We can just let skb_pratial_csum_set()
    do this to avoid extra call to skb_flow_dissect() and simplify the caller.
