Subject Re: Linux + TCP_CORK + IPv6 = Broken [PATCH]
Date Thu, 05 Dec 2002 16:17:53 GMT
To summarize some off-list dicussion - the kernel guys have said that
using sendfile on IPv6 sockets may trigger bugs in cards which do
hardware TCP checksumming for card/driver/OS combinations which support
that. (since the cards have to know about IPv6, and that probably
doesn't get tested much).

Colm confirmed using tcpdump traces that the "missing" response packets
were indeed getting sent with bad checksums. ("tcpdump -vv -s 1500 ip6"
is the magic invocation for the curious)
