Hi Eric,

Multiplying by powers of two are more fast, than non-powers of two.
in this case you would have to use 8KB as a maximum.

Well, I'm no architecture expert, but I really doubt the CPU delay of a
non-power of 2 multiply/divide is significant related to doing smaller
TSO segments. Long ago (as in 1970s) I did work on machines where shifts
for power of 2 multiply/divide was preferable, but these days I doubt it
is going to matter??


You also need to patch LAGG and VLAN drivers?
