'Fixing' skb_segment(), I did that a long time ago and Herbert Xu was 
not happy with the fix and provided something else.

GSO_DODGY has nothing to do with the problem really.

Changing gso_size is breaking GRO since it ends up changing the number 
of segments on the wire. TCP is not going to be happy, so you'll also 
have to fix TCP eventually.
