What I mean is I do not see any problem with the patch that you have
pointed out on ixgbe and bnx2x platforms. HyperV problem went away
with disabling sg by ethtool utility.

Can you also give me more information about regression you are seeing
like driver name, features of the NIC set and features of device
without this patch. Does any other NIC than HyperV having this issue?
