af_packet: pass checksum validation status to the user
Introduce TP_STATUS_CSUM_VALID tp_status flag to tell the af_packet user that at least the transport header checksum has been already validated. For now, the flag may be set for incoming packets only. Signed-off-by: Alexander Drozdov <al.drozdov@gmail.com> Cc: Willem de Bruijn <willemb@google.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
