        May be. It seems there were no such callers but they
appeared. I'm not sure a comment can avoid further problems.
As for the fix, we don't see often lengths of 0 and 1 for
unaligned addrs, it is in the slow path in csum_partial. IMHO,
it will not hurt if we apply the fix instead of auditing everything.
