Adding the persons that contributed that code in case they can shed some

The bug you are referring to affects FreeBSD when running as a guest
using xen-netfront, but the code snipped above and the function
referenced (xnb_add_mbuf_cksum) is only used on FreeBSD when running as
a host (AKA Dom0) by xen-netback.

TBH, I don't know that much about FreeBSD network subsystem to have an
opinion, but it certainly looks weird. Patches are welcome :).

Roger.
