This issue has been proposed when we are only considering blocker
issues in the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. It has
been denied for the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release.

** If you would still like this issue considered for the current
release, ask your support representative to file as a blocker on
your behalf. Otherwise ask that it be considered for the next
Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. **

Its not a per-system thing.  Its driver specific.  Currently the ixgbe driver supports doing it, but I don't think that particular feature was backported yet, so you might need to wait for 6.1 to verify
