mactap: Fix checksum errors for non-gso packets in bridge mode
[ Upstream commit cbdb04279ccaefcc702c8757757eea8ed76e50cf ] The following is a problematic configuration: VM1: virtio-net device connected to macvtap0@eth0 VM2: e1000 device connect to macvtap1@eth0 The problem is is that virtio-net supports checksum offloading and thus sends the packets to the host with CHECKSUM_PARTIAL set. On the other hand, e1000 does not support any acceleration. For small TCP packets (and this includes the 3-way handshake), e1000 ends up receiving packets that only have a partial checksum set. This causes TCP to fail checksum validation and to drop packets. As a result tcp connections can not be established. Commit 3e4f8b787370978733ca6cae452720a4f0c296b8 macvtap: Perform GSO on forwarding path. fixes this issue for large packets wthat will end up undergoing GSO. This commit adds a check for the non-GSO case and attempts to compute the checksum for partially checksummed packets in the non-GSO case.
