Alternatively we could restrict the target to udp only.

AFAIU the only reason this thing exists is to fix up udp checksum
for old dhcp clients that use AF_PACKET without evaluating the extra
metadata that indicates when a 'bad' checksum is in fact ok because it
is supposed to be filled in by hardware later.

This can happen in virtual environemnt when such skb is directly passed
to vm.
