It worries me, given the habit pc vendors have of shipping broken IRQ,
ACPI, and other tables, to make us dependent on them actually getting
the checksum correct. Unless and until we do some testing to verify
that the checksums are correct on a  lot of cards, I would rather make
this a warning rather than an error.

Look at it this way. What is a factory bios going to do with an
expansion card with a bad checksum? My bet is they run it.
