From: Matthias Schiffer <mschif...@universe-factory.net> A more sophisticated implementation could try to combine fragment checksums when all fragments have CHECKSUM_COMPLETE and are split at even offsets. For now, we just set ip_summed to CHECKSUM_NONE to avoid "hw csum failure" warnings in the kernel log when fragmented frames are received. In consequence, skb_pull_rcsum() can be replaced with skb_pull().
Note that in usual setups, packets don't reach batman-adv with CHECKSUM_COMPLETE (I assume NICs bail out of checksumming when they see batadv's ethtype?), which is why the log messages do not occur on every system using batman-adv. I could reproduce this issue by stacking batman-adv on top of a VXLAN interface.
