Hi Antoine,

I was making a v2, when I looked at the mvpp2_port_probe() which does:

--------------------------------%<------------------------------
features = NETIF_F_SG | NETIF_F_IP_CSUM | NETIF_F_IPV6_CSUM | NETIF_F_TSO;

if (port->pool_long->id == MVPP2_BM_JUMBO && port->id != 0) {
    dev->features &= ~(NETIF_F_IP_CSUM | NETIF_F_IPV6_CSUM);
    dev->hw_features &= ~(NETIF_F_IP_CSUM | NETIF_F_IPV6_CSUM);
}

dev->vlan_features |= features;
-------------------------------->%------------------------------

Is it ok to remove NETIF_F_IP*_CSUM from dev->features and
dev->hw_features but keep it in dev->vlan_features?
