Right for stacked vlan device.
But I think the check was there for packets from guests forwarded by
bridge to vlan device so it was a problem before 8cb65d000.

At least HW_CSUM in the check was introduced intentionally.

And I think HW_CSUM should work with any packets.
You know, include/linux/skbuff.h says

We should be able to safely enable it.

...But you are so worried about layer2 protocol handling of HW_CSUM
devices, I'm ok with disabling it for now.
