As Ben Hutchings pointed out, hw_features is still setting this...but
I'm not sure how that matters.

ax88179_set_features() doesn't allow setting SG or TSO features.  But
I expect it would be "not too difficult" to add such that ethtool
could set those features after boot.  Or perhaps add a driver module
parameter to set these features.  I just guessing the skb_linearize()
could be removed until set_features support for SG and/or TSO is
added. Is that correct?

thanks,
grant
