3.2.1-2 is affected as well, so I'm marking it accordingly.

Unfortunately there is no one around me with this network controller,
but I did some test on a
distribution based on a derivative of OS/Net kernel (OpenIndiana), and I
couldn't reproduce the
bug since the 'yge' driver doesn't support hardware checksum calculation.
Therefore I will try with FreeBSD (or a derivative), which use the 'msk'
driver which support that feature.
By the way, do you know if there is a Debian GNU/kFreeBSD live project?

Thanks again Jonathan, and sorry for the looong silence :-}
