Ok. This appears to be on by default in the
drivers/net/ethernet/faraday/ftgmac100.c:

        netdev->hw_features = NETIF_F_RXCSUM | NETIF_F_HW_CSUM |
                NETIF_F_GRO | NETIF_F_SG | NETIF_F_HW_VLAN_CTAG_RX |
                NETIF_F_HW_VLAN_CTAG_TX;

I just realised my test machine must be on a 100Mbit network. I will
try testing on a gigabit network.

I hope not! We have deployed your patch on our systems and I will let
you know if we see the bug again.

Thank you.
