+  XDP support
+  -----------
+  XDP (eXpress Data Path) is a feature that runs eBPF bytecode at the early
+  stage when packets arrive at a NIC card. The goal is to increase performance
+  for packet processing, reducing the overhead of SKB allocation and other
+  upper network layers.
+  hv_netvsc supports XDP in native mode, and transparently sets the XDP
+  program on the associated VF NIC as well.
+  Setting / unsetting XDP program on synthetic NIC (netvsc) propagates to
+  VF NIC automatically. Setting / unsetting XDP program on VF NIC directly
+  is not recommended, also not propagated to synthetic NIC, and may be
+  overwritten by setting of synthetic NIC.
+  XDP program cannot run with LRO (RSC) enabled, so you need to disable LRO
+  before running XDP:
+	ethtool -K eth0 lro off
+  XDP_REDIRECT action is not yet supported.
