Subject: Re: [PATCH net-next V2] virtio-net: don't do header check for
 dodgy gso packets

From: Jason Wang <>
Date: Wed, 24 Dec 2014 11:03:52 +0800

> There's no need to do header check for virtio-net since:
> - Host sets dodgy for all gso packets from guest and check the header.
> - Host should be prepared for all kinds of evil packets from guest, since
>   malicious guest can send any kinds of packet.
> So this patch sets NETIF_F_GSO_ROBUST for virtio-net to skip the check.
