TCP checksum?

I'm looking for a function similar to skb_checksum(), but
for the tcphdr->check field. I'm playing around with a module
I've written for netfilter and I would like to modify options of
the IP and TCP headers. For example, right now I'm trying
to set the destination IP to the source IP, but the TCP checksum
is coming out incorrectly. How can I calculate this checksum?

Thanks a lot in advance. Also, if anyone knows where some
documentation about the TCP/IP stack in the kernel are, please
let me know.
