Description Ben Hutchings 2008-12-20 22:48:11 EST
Description of problem:
Since Linux 2.6.24 some network drivers implement LRO (Large Receive Offload)
and enable it by default. ethtool should provide control over this feature.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Additional info:
My patch to add this was applied to the upstream git repository a while ago
(commit id c36a51cd7ee9a31981f904a7406b798f1f75ee8e).
