net: Fix skb->csum update in inet_proto_csum_replace16().
skb->csum is updated incorrectly, when manipulation for NF_NAT_MANIP_SRC\DST is done on IPV6 packet. Fix: There is no need to update skb->csum in inet_proto_csum_replace16(), because update in two fields a.) IPv6 src/dst address and b.) L4 header checksum cancels each other for skb->csum calculation. Whereas inet_proto_csum_replace4 function needs to update skb->csum, because update in 3 fields a.) IPv4 src/dst address, b.) IPv4 Header checksum and c.) L4 header checksum results in same diff as L4 Header checksum for skb->csum calculation.
