Hi all. I checked the list archive and there's a thread about a year ago
regarding the AWS recommendations for enhanced networking (
I'm still confused as to whether the ixgbevf driver in the ubuntu distro
has at least the same feature set / bug fixes as the 2.16.4 version that
the docs recommend. Any help appreciated and if I need to take this to some
ubuntu list, let me know.

My head tells me 2.11.3-k != 2.16.4, but then again maybe they still have
the same features/bugfixes and the version number was not updated, because
that's the way Canonical does things. I'd like to know before I install the
out-of-tree ixgbevf driver and waste my time, break something, or fix
something that isn't broken.

I launched an instance of Ubuntu 14.04, using ami-2d39803a, then ran
```apt-get update && apt-get upgrade && apt-get dist-upgrade``` Following
that, I see:
