  Turn off hardware assisted transmit checksums by default.  In buildworld
  loop tests this has been conclusively shown to corrupt transmit packets
  about one out of every million packets.  The receive will not know the the
  packet is bad because hardware assist also apples the correct checksum
  to the corrupted packet.  The result are random failures or corruption
  of network data in certain situations.  On DragonFly, for some reason, doing
  a 'resident /usr/bin/*' seems to bring the problem out every few buildworlds
  with (primarily) mkdep's cpp complaining about odd errors trying to open
  non-existant header files (during a header file search), such as
  EPROTONOSUPPORT.  A tcpdump on both NFS client and server showed the
  client transmitting an access RPC and the server seeing a corrupted access
  RPC on its end, and then responding with EPROTONOSUPPORT.  Other uncaught
  errors are also almost certainly occuring.  mkdep is more likely to catch
  them because it actually checks the errno of a failed open() and does a
  huge number of open()'s (and as an NFS client this generates a huge amount
  of packet traffic).
