So it looks like VIRTIO_NET_F_RX_TSTAMP should depend on both
VIRTIO_NET_F_RX_TSTAMP and VIRTIO_NET_F_HASH_REPORT then?

I am not sure what does v12 mean here.

virtio_net_hdr_v1 is just with VIRTIO_F_VERSION_1,
virtio_net_hdr_v1_hash is with VIRTIO_F_VERSION_1 and
VIRTIO_NET_F_HASH_REPORT.

So this one is virtio_net_hdr_hash_tstamp I guess?
