Hi folks,

coreutils-9.2 introduced a regression to the cksum utility
where it may incorrectly say a file is "OK" even when it's not.

Note that its *exit status* is accurate, but it prints the wrong
message in 9.2.

Bug: https://bugs.gnu.org/62403
Patch: https://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/coreutils.git/commit/?id=76f2fb627118a26c25003dbd98c22c153b7ee1d2
