From: Miroslaw Walukiewicz <miroslaw.walukiewicz@intel.com>

Transmission of TCP packets could be accelerated by
HW Transmit Segmentation Offload. With TSO packets up to
64K could be transmismitted.

When this flag is set the PMD drived will enable TCP segmentation.

The new field tso_segsz is added to indicate how long is TCP TSO segment.

In VxLAN patch set  [PATCH v5 7/8]i40e:support VxLAN Tx checksum offload, the  bit (1ULL << 50)   in offload flag have already been used.
