+The Cadence network interface driver of LibBSD works on the Xilinx Zynq
+platform. The hardware checksum support works on real hardware but does not
+seem to be supported on Qemu therefore the default state is to disable
+``IFCAP_TXCSUM`` and ``IFCAP_RXCSUM`` and this can be enabled from the shell
+.. code-block:: none
+    ifconfig cgem0 rxcsum txcsum
+or with an ``ioctl()`` call to the network interface driver with ``SIOCSIFCAP``
+and the mask ``IFCAP_TXCSUM`` and ``IFCAP_RXCSUM`` set.
