I think your patch does fix an error in ixgbevf and I can acknowledge it after
I have checked with 82599 and x540 and x550 datasheet.
In 82599 datasheet, there is an annotation in the chapter 1.3 Features Summary (page 29)
The 82599 supports full-size 15.5 KB (15872-byte) jumbo packets while in a basic mode of operation. When DCB mode is enabled,
or security engines enabled or virtualization is enabled, the 82599 supports 9.5 KB (9728-byte) jumbo packets
In x540 datasheet, there is also an annotation in the chapter 1.3 Features Summary (page 13)
The X540 and 82599 support full-size 15.5 KB jumbo packets while in a basic mode of operation. When DCB mode is enabled,
or security engines enabled, or virtualization is enabled, or OS2BMC is enabled, then the X540 supports 9.5 KB jumbo packets.
Packets to/from MC longer than 2KB are filtered out.
In x550 datasheet, there is still also an annotation in the chapter 1.4 Feature Summary (page 23)
All the products support full-size 15.5 KB jumbo packets while in a basic mode of operation. When DCB mode is enabled, or security
engines enabled, or virtualization is enabled, or OS2BMC is enabled, then only 9.5 KB jumbo packets are supported. Packets to/
from the MC longer than 2 KB are filtered out.
