There are tertiary issues I'm personally interested in, for example
how well this stuff works when we enable software GSO on a non-TSO
capable card.

In such a case the GSO segment should be split right before we hit the
driver and then all the sub-segments of the original GSO frame batched
in one shot down to the device driver.

In this way you'll get a large chunk of the benefit of TSO without
explicit hardware support for the feature.

There are several cards (some even 10GB) that will benefit immensely
from this.
