Revert "macvlan : fix checksums error when we are in bridge mode"
[ Upstream commit f114890cdf84d753f6b41cd0cc44ba51d16313da ] This reverts commit 12a2856b604476c27d85a5f9a57ae1661fc46019. The commit above doesn't appear to be necessary any more as the checksums appear to be correctly computed/validated. Additionally the above commit breaks kvm configurations where one VM is using a device that support checksum offload (virtio) and the other VM does not. In this case, packets leaving virtio device will have CHECKSUM_PARTIAL set. The packets is forwarded to a macvtap that has offload features turned off. Since we use CHECKSUM_UNNECESSARY, the host does does not update the checksum and thus a bad checksum is passed up to the guest.
