As chance would have it, I've played with some Myricom myri10ge NICs recently, 
and even disabled large receive offload during some netperf tests :)  It is a 
modprobe option.  Going back now to the driver source and the README I see :-)


Large Receive Offload (LRO) is enabled by default.  This will
interfere with forwarding TCP traffic.  If you plan to forward TCP
traffic (using the host with the Myri10GE NIC as a router or bridge),
you must disable LRO.  To disable LRO, load the myri10ge driver
with myri10ge_lro set to 0:

          # modprobe myri10ge myri10ge_lro=0

Alternatively, you can disable LRO at runtime by disabling
receive checksum offloading via ethtool:

    # ethtool -K eth2 rx off
