Subject: [net-next 16/17] e1000e: Disable TSO for buffer overrun workaround

From: Kai-Heng Feng <kai.heng.feng@...onical.com>

Commit b10effb92e27 ("e1000e: fix buffer overrun while the I219 is
processing DMA transactions") imposes roughly 30% performance penalty.

The commit log states that "Disabling TSO eliminates performance loss
for TCP traffic without a noticeable impact on CPU performance", so
let's disable TSO by default to regain the loss.

CC: stable <stable@...r.kernel.org>
