I was talking about GSO traffic which doesn't originate from LRO.
All traffic generated by guests would fall into that category.
They can be forwarded by the guests and the host with no problems
at all.

So what we want to detect/forbid isn't the forwarding of GSO
packets, but the LRO of packets which aren't destined for the
local host.

Cheers,
