    I think even this would fail if you are doing something clever with
    NAT or other iptables stuff. Probably we're going to have to put this
    in the hands of the users..who hopefully can determine whether they
    can allow LRO or not...

    For GSO on output, is there a generic fallback for any driver that
    does not specifically implement GSO?
