Actually it is causing me to throw warnings on an ixgbe NIC because it
implies that we want to offload the inner checksum, but we are setting
things up to offload the outer checksum.  For example if the inner is
just an ARP or ICMP frame I don't need to checksum the inner headers,
but skb->encapsulation is still set so the inner headers are being
evaluated instead of the outer ones in the Tx checksum routine in the
driver.

If we clear skb->encapsulation if we don't have CHECKSUM_PARTIAL set
then we don't have the issue.  Really the addition of the line
clearing skb->encapsulation should probably be added to the first
patch so that we don't leave skb->encapsulation set when we aren't
requesting offloads.
