Continuing with off-topic questions: is this "checksum off-load" usable
with r8169? Is there any other reason (performance?) to use hardware
TCP/IP checksumming than just "cool, a little chunk of software is

I have seen you mentioned that this causes mainly troubles if you try to
set it with ethtool. Is it still true?
