Subject: Re: [PATCH net] sctp: call gso_reset_checksum when computing
 checksum in sctp_gso_segment

From: Xin Long <>

> Jianlin reported a panic when running sctp gso over gre over vlan device:

> sctp_gso_segment() calls skb_segment() with 'feature | NETIF_F_HW_CSUM',
> which causes SKB_GSO_CB(skb)->csum_start not to be set in skb_segment().
