Log Message:
Make vlan and all ip/ip6 checksum offload work for the I350.

On newer devices, when using the legacy TX descriptors, vlan-related flags
that were set on the last descriptor of a packet have to be set on the
first one.
For tso/checksum offloads, a new "advanced" descriptor format has to be


Tested on a I350, and a i80003 (which use the old format), both with and
without vlans, with and without checksum offloads.

Is there an easy way to identify which wm I have? Does the following device need this commit in order to use offload? Or will this one work with an earlier rev of the driver?

# dmesg | grep wm
wm0 at pci2 dev 0 function 0: Intel i82574L (rev. 0x00)
wm0: interrupting at ioapic1 pin 24
wm0: PCI-Express bus
wm0: 256 word (8 address bits) SPI EEPROM
wm0: Ethernet address bc:ae:c5:30:d9:8a
ukphy0 at wm0 phy 1: OUI 0x000ac2, model 0x000b, rev. 1

BTW, reason I am asking is that I had previously (about a year or so ago) needed to disable the offload functions on the 82574 because it wasn't working. This commit seems to imply that it fixes only the I350 so I was wondering if some other change that I had missed might have already fixed the 82574.
