    Any news on this ? AST2400 has no HW checksum logic in HW, AST2500
    should work for IPV4 fine, we should only selectively disable it for
    IPV6.

Ben, I have already sent v2 for this with requested change which only disable 
for IPV6 in AST2500. I can send it again.
    
    Can you do an updated patch ?
    
    Cheers,
    Ben.
