The description still does not match what we discussed. Either we
have PKT_TX_IPV4 meaning "packet is IPv4 without requiring IP cksum
offload", or  "packet is IPv4". I prefer the second one, but whatever
the choice is, the comments must be coherent.

I think we should have the same flags with the same meanings for
inner and outer:


In your patch there is no PKT_TX_OUTER_IPV4 flag.
