Well, csum_partial()'s return value is __wsum (32-bit).  So strictly
there is no need to folding into 16-bit.

I think this bug was introduced by my commit
ed99e2bc1dc5dc54eb5a019f4975562dbef20103 ("[MIPS] Optimize
csum_partial for 64bit kernel").  This commit changed ADDC to using
daddu for 64-bit kernel and that was wrong for the last addition of
partial csum which should be 32-bit addition.

Here is my proposal fix.  Bryan, could you try it too?
