Subject[170/272] ixgbe: fix for 82599 erratum on Header Splitting
2.6.37-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

From: Don Skidmore <donald.c.skidmore@intel.com>

commit a124339ad28389093ed15eca990d39c51c5736cc upstream.

We have found a hardware erratum on 82599 hardware that can lead to
unpredictable behavior when Header Splitting mode is enabled. So
we are no longer enabling this feature on affected hardware.

Please see the 82599 Specification Update for more information.
