Hey, I was just asking! Dunno about others, but for me
the zc thing has basically come from nowhere - I'm still
coming up to speed about the design decisions which were
made, how it is implemented, etc.
Inter-| Receive | Transmit

So this: ^^
tells us that 54 packets have been sent with h/w checksums and this:
tells us that they were all multi-fragment.
I assume this is because the IP header is in a different frag?
Is there ever a situation in which these numbers will differ?
