I had to recall why we cannot just rely on dev->features and
dev->hw_features to encode the set of feature capabilities, but need
guest_offloads_capable.

Flag NETIF_F_LRO encapsulates multiple VIRTIO_NET_F_GUEST_.. flags,
and a device may advertise a subset. We thus have to bound to the set
learned at probing time.
