It seems TSO support is broken.

Your trace have no 'big' packets but holes like :

00:41:35.832695 IP 10.243.88.168.35846 > 10.185.85.69.22: Flags [.], ack 6093, win 310, options [nop,nop,TS val 78054 ecr 3191538976], length 0
00:41:35.855990 IP 10.243.88.168.35846 > 10.185.85.69.22: Flags [P.], seq 6696:6776, ack 6093, win 310, options [nop,nop,TS val 78060 ecr 3191538976], length 80
00:41:36.047465 IP 10.185.85.69.22 > 10.243.88.168.35846: Flags [P.], seq 6093:6141, ack 6776, win 218, options [nop,nop,TS val 3191539191 ecr 78060], length 48

missing 6776:14144 sequence (6 segments)

00:41:36.048766 IP 10.243.88.168.35846 > 10.185.85.69.22: Flags [.], seq 14144:15372, ack 6141, win 310, options [nop,nop,TS val 78108 ecr 3191539191], length 1228
00:41:36.057995 IP 10.185.85.69.22 > 10.243.88.168.35846: Flags [.], ack 6776, win 218, options [nop,nop,TS val 3191539202 ecr 78060,nop,nop,sack 1 {14144:15372}], length 0

You are 'saved' because retransmits do not use TSO :

00:41:36.058050 IP 10.243.88.168.35846 > 10.185.85.69.22: Flags [.], seq 6776:8004, ack 6141, win 310, options [nop,nop,TS val 78110 ecr 3191539202], length 1228
00:41:36.058070 IP 10.243.88.168.35846 > 10.185.85.69.22: Flags [.], seq 8004:9232, ack 6141, win 310, options [nop,nop,TS val 78110 ecr 3191539202], length 1228

Also receiver seems to be unable to open TCP window, but thats a secondary problem.
