Since the Hackathon is approaching, I thought I'd take a look at old
PRs I'd filed that were still open. In this case, it appears from
code inspection that the answer is that IPv4 hardware checksum off-
loading is not supported, given there's only one reference in the
most current version of if_sk.c that appears relevant. On line 1397
I see "ifp->if_capabilities = 0;" and that's it... And from looking
at the revision history for the man page, it was imported with the
"is supported" statement, and someone added "is not supported" under
the bugs section later.
Another question: the man page still says "This driver is
experimental" under bugs. There have been some revisions made to
the driver in the intervening years, is it still considered such?
