Which structure member are you talking about here?

Currently, if_capabilities, if_capenable, if_csum_flags_{tx,rx} are
used only for IP related purpose.
But these members are not limited for IP. Other protocol can use these
members too, if underlying hardware supports that protocol.

Or, are you talking about other member?
If so, which one?
