Because as of today, there's nothing implemented to disable
classification offload in the driver, so the feature can't be toggled.

Is this an issue ? Sorry if I'm doing this wrong, but I didn't see any
indication that this feature has to be host-writeable.

I can make so that it's toggle-able, but it's not as straightforward as
we would think, since the classifier is also used for RSS (so, we can't
just disable the classifier as a whole, we would have to invalidate
each registered flow).

Thanks,

Maxime
