9+8=17 Sudoku (Fun With Sudoku #34)

It was 2nd World Sudoku Championship 2007 at Prague, Czech Republic which introduced us to so many new variations. In this Championship there were more than 50 new Sudoku variations. May be being new to Sudoku solving everything which appeared in this championship looked as new variations to us. Any way to prepare for this World Sudoku Championship 2007 we decide to create as many puzzles as possible and this puzzle I created for Team India practice. 
May be this type of puzzle appeared later with many different names but I am retaining this name as 9+8=17 Sudoku as this name appeared in the first version of this puzzle.
This 9+8=17 Sudoku I am re-posting as 34th Sudoku in Fun With Sudoku Series.
Rules of 9+8=17 Sudoku
Classic Sudoku Rules apply.  Additionally, small clue-numbers are either placed on the border lines between selected pairs of neighboring squares of the grid or placed after slash marks on the intersections of border lines between two diagonally adjacent squares. Each small clue-number is the sum of two digits in the two squares that are horizontally or vertically or diagonally adjacent to each other. The position of each pair of diagonally adjacent squares is indicated by either two forward slash marks // or two backward slash marks \\.
