Was this included to work around the IPv6 issue that Benh recently fixed?

If you can test your platform with
88824e3bf29a2fcacfd9ebbfe03063649f0f3254 applied and the
no-hw-checksum property removed, please send a follow up to remove
this property.

It's not doing any harm, but by cleaning it up there's less chance
others blindly copy the same thing.
