Huh? Whether you use get_flags or not you still need to patch the
user-space application so that it knows how to handle

	ethtool -K eth0 gro on/off

There is no way around that.

As I said earlier, I didn't use get_flags/set_flags because of the
need to depend on RX checksum offload.

BTW, here is the patch for ethtool to set the GRO flags.
