This patch disable TX offload when the interface is added to bridge:

I don't know if it's good to doing in L3...

It seems that both FreeBSD and DragonFly clear all bridge member's outgoing
offload flags when adding a member to a bridge. I also don't know if
this is good solution or not...

If I understand correctly, since TX offload is for L3 (and L4), we
inevitably need something to do in L3...

I implemented software TX/RX offload engines for ethernet:

Using these routines, I wrote a patch where TX offloading is canceled in
bridge_output() when the destination interface is different from the
source interface:

With this patch, the guest successfully communicates with the host even
if any TX offloading is enabled on the host side.

Also, I added TX/RX offloading support to shmif(4):

Since I'm not familiar with rump, this patch has not been tested
systematically yet. But it seems to work to some extent...
