Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] [PATCH] dccp: support for variable-length checksums
From: Gerrit Renker <[email protected]>
Date: Wed, 8 Nov 2006 14:06:37 +0000
This patch adds support for correct computation of
variable length DCCP checksums as specified in 
RFC 4340, section 9.

Previously wireshark was unable to compute these 
checksums, only full-coverage checksums could be 
validated.

This patch
	* makes checksum computation dependent
          upon the header CsCov field (cf. RFC 4340, 5.1)
	* removes the case where checksums are zero
	  (unlike UDP/packet-udp, from which the code stems,
           zero checksums are illegal in DCCP (as in TCP))
	* fixes a minor typo - missing bitshift of the
	  CCVal field 


The patch has been tested against latest automatic build, 
correctness of checksum computation
has been manually validated; sample traces can be supplied. 

I would like to see this merged, in particular since a
Linux kernel patch for DCCP partial checksums already exists.


Thanks,
Gerrit Renker
