Subject: [PATCH net 2/2] net/mlx4_en: Disbale GRO for incoming loopback/selftest packets

From: Ido Shamay <idos@...lanox.com>

Packets which are sent from the selftest (ethtool) flow, should not 
be passed to the GRO stack but rather dropped by the driver after validation. 
To achieve that, we disable GRO for the duration of the selftest.

Fixes: dd65beac48a5 ("net/mlx4_en: Extend usage of napi_gro_frags")
