Mark:
So far not supported. This is important as well in VxLan case. For the packet flow  
Guest A->  virtio -> ..->OVDK->.. -> Guest B.
1) If guest A and B are on different host machines, say A and B respectively,  and if the nic on A supports
vxlan checksum offload, then both guest and host needn't generate checksum, the nic will  
generate checksum for both inner and outer packet.
2) In VM2VM case, as it is trusted communication channel, could we negotiate with the guest tcp stack not to verify checksum 
for received packet?
