From: Mukund Jampala <jbmukund@gmail.com>

The problem occurs when iptables constructs the tcp reset packet.
It doesn't initialize the pointer to the tcp header within the skb.
When the skb is passed to the ixgbe driver for transmit, the ixgbe
driver attempts to access the tcp header and crashes.
Currently, other drivers (such as our 1G e1000e or igb drivers) don't
access the tcp header on transmit unless the TSO option is turned on.
