Hi,

This is an expected behavior of ConnectX4-LX, ConnectX4-LX requires the
driver to copy at least the L2 headers into the linear part, in some
DCB/DSCP configuration it will require L3 headers.
to check what the current configuration, you can check from the driver
code:
mlx5e_calc_min_inline() // Calculates the minimum required headers to
copy to linear part per packet 

and sq->min_inline_mode; stores the minimum required by the FW.

This "must copy" requirement doesn't exist for ConnectX5 and above ..
