> I checked gso code again, there are two cases even if ret == 1, one case is it isn't segmented, the other is it is segmented but gso_do_segment returns 1, for case #1, we can handle it as you said, but for case #2, we can't handle it as you said because it has been segmented in fact. So I think we should return 0 foe case #1 and don't do assignment  "pkts_out[0] = pkt;", we should handle case #2 as before, right?

When will #2 case happen? In current implementation,
ret of gso_do_segment() is > 1, when GSO happens; otherwise,
ret is negative. It doesn't return 1. If you mean the
case that pkt_len is smaller than gso_size, gso_do_segment()
will not be called, since rte_gso_segment() will compare
pkt_len and gso_size before.
