SubjectTCP Segmentation Offload

with a larger MTU than eth, and the NIC produces smaller tcp segments.

I would like to hear your comments, weather this is something that can gain
real performance, and how to incorporate this into the Linux stack (At least
I didn't
see any references to it in kernel 2.4.(x<4)).
