identical ns_cksum.c are present in
very similar (modulo some u_int8_t <--> u_char) version
Only VAX has something different, with some assemply code in.
Why the duplication is there ? Shouldn't the i386/m68k/sh3
copies be killed ? Probably even the VAX one, the compiler
does probably better job in optimizing the code than
hand crafted assembly.
Other architectures than the above three seem to use
the ns_cksum.c in netns/ns_cksum.c.
