From: Stephen Hemminger <stephen@networkplumber.org>

The values for Rx and Tx copy break should be tunable rather
than hard coded constants.

The rx_copybreak sets the threshold where the driver uses an
external mbuf to avoid having to copy data. Setting 0 for copybreak
will cause driver to always create an external mbuf. Setting
a value greater than the MTU would prevent it from ever making
an external mbuf and always copy. The default value is 256 (bytes).

Likewise the tx_copybreak sets the threshold where the driver
aggregates multiple small packets into one request. If tx_copybreak
is 0 then each packet goes as a VMBus request (no copying).
If tx_copybreak is set larger than the MTU, then all packets smaller
than the chunk size of the VMBus send buffer will be copied; larger
packets always have to go as a single direct request. The default
value is 512 (bytes).
