dev_disable_lro expects that NETIF_F_LRO is always configurable. Which
I guess is a reasonable assumption, just not necessarily the case in
virtio_net.

So I think we need both patches. Correctly mark the feature as fixed
by removing from dev->hw_features and also ignore the request from
dev_disable_lro, which does not check for this.
