dhcp-client: Ignore partial checksums
dhclient will fail to get an IP address if run inside a guest when traffic is flowing over a virtual network interface. The user will see the error message: 5 bad udp checksums in 5 packets No DHCPOFFERS received. Unable to obtain a lease on first try. Exiting. Failed to bring up eth0. This is because Linux only uses partial checksums for packets that go over virtual network interfaces and dhclient does not like this. See linux kernel commit 78ea85f17b15390e30d8b47488ec7b6cf0790663 ("net: skbuff: improve comment on checksumming") An application can detect this behaviour by checking for the TP_STATUS_CSUMNOTREADY flag in the tp_status field. See linux kernel commit 8dc4194474159660d7f37c495e3fc3f10d0db8cc ("Add optional checksum computation for recvmsg") An extra parameter is added to decode_udp_ip_header() in dhclient to indicate whether or not dhclient should ignore partial checksums. This is used when the TP_STATUS_CSUMNOTREADY bit is set by the guest kernel. This fix has been included in Fedora and Ubuntu, however it has not yet been accepted by ISC upstream. Likely because it is specific to behaviour in Linux and other UNIX variants do not seem to be affected.
