Subject: Re: [PATCH v2] net: core: don't account for udp header size when
 computing seglen

From: Florian Westphal <>
Date: Wed,  9 Apr 2014 10:28:50 +0200

> In case of tcp, gso_size contains the tcpmss.
> For UFO (udp fragmentation offloading) skbs, gso_size is the fragment
> payload size, i.e. we must not account for udp header size.
> Otherwise, when using virtio drivers, a to-be-forwarded UFO GSO packet
> will be needlessly fragmented in the forward path, because we think its
> individual segments are too large for the outgoing link.
> Fixes: fe6cc55f3a9a053 ("net: ip, ipv6: handle gso skbs in forwarding path")
