This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed- xenial' to 'verification-done-xenial'.
If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed.

Then, changing some features like TSO/GSO via ethtool will forcibly enable FD_SB without any vectors available, and this way we get errors. If we unload the i40e (using "modprobe -r") after these errors, we end up crashing the system. There is an upstream patch that address exactly this issue. We want to request Canonical to merge it on Ubuntu 16.04.1 kernel if possible.
