      If we have a keyboard/mouse port, don't drop through to
      calling sunsu_autoconfig().

      [IPV6]: Added GSO support for TCPv6 · f83ef8c0

      This patch adds GSO support for IPv6 and TCPv6.  This is based on a patch
      by Ananda Raju <Ananda.Raju@neterion.com>.  His original description is:
      
      	This patch enables TSO over IPv6. Currently Linux network stacks
      	restricts TSO over IPv6 by clearing of the NETIF_F_TSO bit from
      	"dev->features". This patch will remove this restriction.
      
      	This patch will introduce a new flag NETIF_F_TSO6 which will be used
      	to check whether device supports TSO over IPv6. If device support TSO
      	over IPv6 then we don't clear of NETIF_F_TSO and which will make the
      	TCP layer to create TSO packets. Any device supporting TSO over IPv6
      	will set NETIF_F_TSO6 flag in "dev->features" along with NETIF_F_TSO.
      
      	In case when user disables TSO using ethtool, NETIF_F_TSO will get
      	cleared from "dev->features". So even if we have NETIF_F_TSO6 we don't
      	get TSO packets created by TCP layer.
      
      	SKB_GSO_TCPV4 renamed to SKB_GSO_TCP to make it generic GSO packet.
      	SKB_GSO_UDPV4 renamed to SKB_GSO_UDP as UFO is not a IPv4 feature.
      	UFO is supported over IPv6 also
      
      	The following table shows there is significant improvement in
      	throughput with normal frames and CPU usage for both normal and jumbo.
