Bug Description

== Comment: #0 - THOMAS L. FALCON - 2017-01-10 11:54:24 ==

This bug is being mirrored for any distributions that include ibmveth large send/receive support. In short, any distribution with ibmveth v1.05 will be affected (releases 14.04.5/Wily+)

2 upstream commits:

1. Set GSO size and type
https://github.com/torvalds/linux/commit/7b5967389f5a8dfb9d32843830f5e2717e20995d
2. set GSO segments
https://github.com/torvalds/linux/commit/94acf164dc8f1184e8d0737be7125134c2701dbe

A VIOS fix is needed as well.

---Problem Description---
When ibmveth interface on a PowerVM logical partition received a large, aggregated packet from firmware, the gso fields in the socket buffer shared info were not filled in correctly. This surfaced in a bug where the TCP rx window calculation algorithm returned a Zero Window even when there was available space.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-xenial' to 'verification-done-xenial'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-xenial' to 'verification-failed-xenial'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
