Isn't this wrong for 'rte_ipv4_udptcp_cksum()' too? Since you are touching this,
can you fix that one too?

Ferruh, the description of the return value is technically correct; it mentions the IP packet, not the IP header.
So this change is a clarification only.

However, I agree that the same clarification would also benefit 'rte_ipv4_udptcp_cksum()'.

Sure, will fix in v2.

Also for rte_ipv4_udptcp_cksum(), a comment says "The IP and layer 4
checksum must be set to zero", but only the layer 4 checksum actually
needs to be set to zero. I'll fix that at the same time.

Thanks,
