Subject: [PATCH v2] [netfilter]: Fix skb->csum calculation when netfilter manipulation for NF_NAT_MANIP_SRC\DST is done on IPV6 packet.
Date: Tue, 29 Oct 2019 09:59:11 -0700
Message-ID: <1572368351-3156-2-git-send-email-pchaudhary@linkedin.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1572368351-3156-1-git-send-email-pchaudhary@linkedin.com>

No need to update skb->csum in function inet_proto_csum_replace16(),
even if skb->ip_summed == CHECKSUM_COMPLETE, because change in L4
header checksum field and change in IPV6 header cancels each other
for skb->csum calculation.

Changes in V2.
1.) Updating diff as per email discussion with Florian Westphal.
    Since inet_proto_csum_replace16() does incorrect calculation
    for skb->csum in all cases.
2.) Change in Commmit logs.
