Subject: [PATCH v2 net-next 2/6] net: tso: double TSO_HEADER_SIZE value

Transport header size could be 60 bytes, and network header
size can also be 60 bytes. Add the Ethernet header and we
are above 128 bytes.

Since drivers using net/core/tso.c usually allocates
one DMA coherent piece of memory per TX queue, this patch
might cause issues if a driver was using too many slots.

For 1024 slots, we would need 256 KB of physically
contiguous memory instead of 128 KB.

Alternative fix would be to add checks in the fast path,
but this involves more work in all drivers using net/core/tso.c.
