RFC 4880, "OpenPGP Message Format", November 2007

Section 5.2.3. says:

     - Two-octet scalar octet count for following hashed subpacket data.
     - Hashed subpacket data set (zero or more subpackets).
     - Two-octet scalar octet count for the following unhashed subpacket
       data. 
     - Unhashed subpacket data set (zero or more subpackets).

It should say:

     - Two-octet scalar octet count for following hashincluded subpacket
       data.
     - Hashincluded subpacket data set (zero or more subpackets).
     - Two-octet scalar octet count for the following not hashincluded
       subpacket data. 
     - Not hashincluded subpacket data set (zero or more subpackets).

Notes:

The first field does not contain a hash. But it is included in the hash.
Unhashing is the reverse of hashing, which is hopefully unfeasible.
--VERIFIER NOTES--
This is incorrect.
