Hi Kamal,
It's just a nit, but we would like to keep the patches in the same form as in upstream when possible, i.e. without the line-break here.

Subject: [PATCH 3.19.y-ckt 21/40] net/mlx4_en: Fix endianness bug in IPV6 csum calculation

3.19.8-ckt22 -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Daniel Jurgens <danielj@xxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 82d69203df634b4dfa765c94f60ce9482bcc44d6 upstream.

Use htons instead of unconditionally byte swapping nexthdr. On a little endian systems shifting the byte is correct behavior, but it results in incorrect csums on big endian architectures.

Fixes: f8c6455bb04b ('net/mlx4_en: Extend checksum offloading by CHECKSUM COMPLETE')
