This should go to other part.

This could also define NETIF_F_GSO_SHIFT and name TSO and others.
Maybe like this:


NETIF_F_GSO_SHIFT, /* must == 16, for now */
GSO_RESERVED0_BIT = NETIF_F_GSO_SHIFT,
GSO_RESERVED1_BIT,
...
GSO_RESERVED7_BIT,
... (other bits)
> +       /* Add you bit above this */

your.

> +       ND_FEATURE_NUM_BITS,     /* (LAST VALUE) Total bits in use */

And here GSO aliases:

TSO_BIT = NETIF_F_GSO_SHIFT + SKB_GSO_TCPV4,
UFO_BIT = NETIF_F_GSO_SHIFT + SKB_GSO_UDP,
...

Afther this is done, I can convert the feature-names table in
ethtool.c to use C99 array assignments, so that no one else will trip
on a missing comma or wrong entries order there.

About the bit names: NETIF_F_xxx_BIT?
