    udp: add udp gso · ee80d1eb
    Willem de Bruijn authored
    Implement generic segmentation offload support for udp datagrams. A
    follow-up patch adds support to the protocol stack to generate such
    UDP GSO is not UFO. UFO fragments a single large datagram. GSO splits
    a large payload into a number of discrete UDP datagrams.
    The implementation adds a GSO type SKB_UDP_GSO_L4 to differentiate it
    from UFO (SKB_UDP_GSO).
    IPPROTO_UDPLITE is excluded, as that protocol has no gso handler
