Yes, I noticed the whack part was missing too.

The only decision to make is if we can just make this auto-detect, so we
do not have to set an explicit option. If we can detect the capability
in the kernel and detect the capability in the nic, we could just
auto-set it with possibly a global disable option in case of fire.
