Hi Andrew,

Technically JUMBO_FRAME flag is an user config and application should set it. It 
is application's responsibility to check the capability and set the flag when 
necessary.

But, after above said, many PMDs set it based on provided MTU value, if the 
explicitly requested MTU is bigger than the RTE_ETHER_MTU, this means user 
implied the JUMBO_FRAME support, for this case PMDs set the flag implicitly 
instead of failing.

In another thread Andrew R. & Konstantin suggested to remove the JUMBO_FRAME 
flag, since it is redundant and causing this kind of confusion, instead driver 
can decide based on requested MTU value, and driver reported 'max_mtu' value can 
be used by application to detect the capability. We will probably do this 
change, but it can be done only in the ABI break release, v21.11.

For now, PMD can set the flag itself if requested MTU > RTE_ETHER_MTU and driver 
supports jumbo frames.
