This is looking at the feature bits coming in from ndo_set_features - if 
the RX_HASH bit has been turned off in the incoming features bitmask, 
then I need to disable the hw hashing.

I believe the confusion is between lif->hw_features, describing what is 
currently enabled in the hw, versus the netdev->hw_features, that is 
what we've told the the stack we have available.
