It should be able to do UDP hash (for non-fragmented packets only).

Look at FreeBSD:
https://github.com/freebsd/freebsd-src/tree/main/sys/dev/hyperv/netvsc

And Linux kernel:
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/tree/drivers/net/hyperv/rndis_filter.c

The Linux driver is the definitive source.
The FreeBSD driver is where netvsc PMD was derived from.
