You right. Comment is wrong.

All ports support Jumbo frames.
But only port 0 can do TX HW checksum offload(due to TX FIFO size).

Packet processor 2.2 has only 19KB TX FIFO size.
So in TX FIFO config code assign for Port 0 - 10KB, Port 1 - 3KB and Port 1 - 3KB.

To perform checksum in HW, HW obviously should work in store and forward mode. Store all frame in TX FIFO and then check checksum.
If mtu 1500B, everything fine and all port can do this.

If mtu is 9KB and 9KB frame transmitted, Port 0 still can do HW checksum. But ports 1 and 2 doesn't has enough FIFO for this.
So we cannot offload this feature and SW should perform checksum.

This is correct for all ports. All ports can support Jumbo frames.
