SubjectRe: [PATCH] usb/gadget/function/u_ether.c: Allow jumbo frames
I'd like to bring this to your attention again please.

If there is something wrong about this patch, please tell me so.

And also note that this patch does not enable jumbo frames on itself, it just
removes the artificial limits in the kernel prohibiting mtus above 1500. The
MTU can be set from user space, and the impact on performance is quite impressive.
