This one still doesn't look ok. You clear dev->features, but the
behaviour of the upstream patch is different: they copy dev->features to
a local variable, and clear that, passing to netif_needs_gso, otherwise
after you clear first time, dev->features will have always the flags
cleared, and the checks are per skb, shouldn't be cleared globally in
dev->features. Fixing this, Ack from me for the patch series, the other
things I just wanted to point out but should be benign or style issues.
