Subject: [PATCH net 0/2] drivers/net,ipv6: Fix IPv6 fragment ID selection
 for virtio

The virtio net protocol supports UFO but does not provide for passing a
fragment ID for fragmentation of IPv6 packets.  We used to generate a
fragment ID wherever such a packet was fragmented, but currently we
always use ID=0!

  drivers/net: Disable UFO through virtio
  drivers/net,ipv6: Select IPv6 fragment idents for virtio UFO packets

Theory and practice are closer in theory than in practice.
