Subject[PATCH 3.2 179/199] netvsc: reduce maximum GSO size
3.2.87-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: stephen hemminger <stephen@networkplumber.org>

[ Upstream commit a50af86dd49ee1851d1ccf06dd0019c05b95e297 ]

Hyper-V (and Azure) support using NVGRE which requires some extra space
for encapsulation headers. Because of this the largest allowed TSO
packet is reduced.

For older releases, hard code a fixed reduced value. For next release,
there is a better solution which uses result of host offload
negotiation.
