If you look at the datasheet (82599) - the description of CTRL_EXT.RO_DIS (bit 17, 0b):

Relaxed Ordering Disable. When set to 1b, the device does not request any relaxed
ordering transactions. When this bit is cleared and the Enable Relaxed Ordering bit in
the Device Control register is set, the device requests relaxed ordering transactions per queues as configured in the DCA_RXCTRL[n] and DCA_TXCTRL[n] registers.

So if you remove the code that clears the bits in DCA_T/RXCTRL relaxed ordering should
be enabled by HW when the bus allows it.

Thanks,
Emil
