I wonder if it would be better to still advertise NETIF_F_IP_CSUM in
this case, but just call skb_checksum_help() if skb->len is > dev->mtu
in txq_submit_skb(), like we do for the case where the ethernet header
is of an unsupported length -- that way, we'd still have hardware
checksum offload for TX packets that _do_ fit inside the hardware TX
fifo, e.g. when communicating with hosts on another subnet where the
default MTU is used.

There's always a limit. :-)  You might as well just fill in the right
values for orion5x/kw/dd/loki while you're at it.
