Subject: [PATCH net] net/mlx4_en: Fix endianness bug in IPV6 csum calculation

From: Daniel Jurgens <danielj@...lanox.com>

Use htons instead of unconditionally byte swapping nexthdr.  On a little
endian systems shifting the byte is correct behavior, but it results in
incorrect csums on big endian architectures.

Fixes: f8c6455bb04b ('net/mlx4_en: Extend checksum offloading by CHECKSUM COMPLETE')
