I think so too. Apparently however, ESX is mandatorily expecting that underneath. If not set, config will fail.

Subject: [PATCH] net/vmxnet3: fix RSS setting on v4

    When calling to setup RSS on v4 API, ESX will expect
    IPv4/6 TCP RSS to be set/requested mandatorily.

    This patch will:
    - Set IPv4/6 TCP RSS when these have not been set. A warning
    message is thrown to make sure we warn the application we are
    setting IPv4/6 TCP RSS when not set.

Why we are enforcing TCP RSS?  I would think it's up to the user to decide what to request based on their specific needs and we should support RSS even when it does not request TCP RSS.

    - An additional check has been added to dodge RSS configuration
    altogether unless MQ_RSS has been requested, similar to v3.

    The alternative (returning error) was considered, the intent
    is to ease the task of setting up and running vmxnet3 in situations
    where it's supposted to be most strightforward (testpmd, pktgen).
