It's strange to talk about "Upstream" on the upstream website.
Better to give a version number.

What is vmxnet3 HW?

Syntax typo in above syntence.

I don't understand what it means.

A fix is not a feature, why listing?

Reference to the workaround?

Those PMDs are referenced here since the beginning based of promises.
I think there is nothing concrete, not even a single announcement,
so it is better to remove.
