OK I've done the changes, and it works awesome!  Thank you!  I spent most of
the day fine-tuning the udp checksumming, it was developed on OpenBSD, and
then when I ported it to Linux it almost worked out of the box, except Linux
does a weird thing with the protocol set on a sin6.sin6_port.  But I figured
it out.  Next I tested NetBSD and it worked perfectly.  Last I tested FreeBSD.
No regressions.  This is awesome!  I wasn't sure if you wanted your name on
credits so I credited the NetBSD organization in my CVS.  I'm gonna see if I
can get someone to donate for NetBSD as well.

Best Regards,
