Subject: [net-next PATCH 0/3] qlge: Performance changes for qlge.


Currently qlge splits headers into a separate buffer so they can
be re-aligned on a 2-byte boundary.  This is done to avoid
exceptions thrown on certain platforms when headers are processed.
To avoid the overhead of re-aligning headers, we turn on the split 
header/realign configuration only when the platform requires it.
This allows usage of the gro-frags interface on platforms that do
not require 32 bit aligned headers.
