There is another thing I thought about today, and that is
to automatically handle this CHECKSUM_HW stuff when the
skb->data area is COW'd via pskb_expand_head() or similar.
I don't know how well that would work, but if it did then
we could consolidate all of this stuff into one spot which
is always nice.
