Subject[PATCH net-next] ibmveth: v1 calculate correct gso_size and set gso_type
Date
We recently encountered a bug where a few customers using ibmveth on the 
same LPAR hit an issue where a TCP session hung when large receive was
enabled. Closer analysis revealed that the session was stuck because the
one side was advertising a zero window repeatedly.

We narrowed this down to the fact the ibmveth driver did not set gso_size
which is translated by TCP into the MSS later up the stack. The MSS is
used to calculate the TCP window size and as that was abnormally large,
it was calculating a zero window, even although the sockets receive buffer
was completely empty.

We were able to reproduce this and worked with IBM to fix this. Thanks Tom
and Marcelo for all your help and review on this.

The patch fixes both our internal reproduction tests and our customers tests.
