Hi all,

probably dev->vlan_features is safe to keep the CSUM features to avoid
unnecessary calculation in some cases, but I have another question.
Does the PP2 hardware support checksumming within any offset? I
replaced 'NETIF_F_IP_CSUM | NETIF_F_IPV6_CSUM' with NETIF_F_HW_CSUM and
then stacked 5 VxLANS on top of a mvpp2 device, to have the last IP
header at offset 264:

ip link set $dev up
ip addr add 192.168.0.$last/24 dev $dev

for i in {1..5}; do
ip link add vx$i type vxlan id $i dstport 4789 remote 192.168.$((i-1)).$other
ip link set vx$i up
ip addr add 192.168.$i.$last/24 dev vx$i
done

It seems that the HW is capable of doing it, can someone with a
datasheet confirm this?
