	According to Eric Dumazet, these two help for flows terminating on the device in question, not for flows just passing through the device. So unless your cerowrt router offers lots of network services it most likely will not profit from these features… Also, IIRC, we disable TSO on cerowrt by default (though TSO sizing might mean that this decision could be revisited).

	I would hope for 3.10 to be the kernel for the forceable future, due to its promised 2 years? maintenance window.
