Whether or not the checksum is checked and generated by hardware on QE? We read
the linux kernel code, found that the chechsum is dealed by software, is it true?

How can we let the hardware to deal with the checksum and CRC? then maybe the
speed of TCP package will fast.

follow is from the MPC8360ERM document:
The UEC may programmed to check IP header checksum on the receiver, and generate
IP header checksum on the transmitter.
