[PATCH 4.9 150/171] net: fix pskb_trim_rcsum_slow() with odd trim offset

4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Dimitris Michailidis <dmichail@xxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit d55bef5059dd057bd077155375c581b49d25be7e ]

We've been getting checksum errors involving small UDP packets, usually
59B packets with 1 extra non-zero padding byte. netdev_rx_csum_fault()
has been complaining that HW is providing bad checksums. Turns out the
problem is in pskb_trim_rcsum_slow(), introduced in commit 88078d98d1bb
("net: pskb_trim_rcsum() and CHECKSUM_COMPLETE are friends").

The source of the problem is that when the bytes we are trimming start
at an odd address, as in the case of the 1 padding byte above,
skb_checksum() returns a byte-swapped value. We cannot just combine this
with skb->csum using csum_sub(). We need to use csum_block_sub() here
that takes into account the parity of the start address and handles the

Matches existing code in __skb_postpull_rcsum() and esp_remove_trailer().
