The bridge device always causes a warning because when it is first created
it has the no checksum flag set along with all the segmentation/fragmentation
offload bits.  The code in register_netdevice incorrectly checks for only
hardware checksum bit and ignores no checksum bit.

Similar code is already in 2.6.28:
