This code is part of the recovery, assuming the recovery detects the hw
has lost it's rx csum capability I still don't understand how ndo_fix_features
come into play?

The s/390 devices have a two stage device concept. For each netdevice there is
a corresponding ccw_group device. Removing the netdevice is controlled by the
ccw_group device. The recovery process is synchronized with the ccw_group
device.
