Commit a02e8964eaf92 ("virtio-net: ethtool configurable LRO")
maps LRO to virtio guest offloading features and allows the
administrator to enable and disable those features via ethtool.

This leads to several issues:

- For a device that doesn't support control guest offloads, the "LRO"
  can't be disabled triggering WARN in dev_disable_lro() when turning
  off LRO or when enabling forwarding bridging etc.

- For a device that supports control guest offloads, the guest
  offloads are disabled in cases of bridging, forwarding etc slowing
  down the traffic.

Fix this by using NETIF_F_GRO_HW instead. Though the spec does not
guarantee packets to be re-segmented as the original ones,
we can add that to the spec, possibly with a flag for devices to
differentiate between GRO and LRO.

Further, we never advertised LRO historically before a02e8964eaf92
("virtio-net: ethtool configurable LRO") and so bridged/forwarded
configs effectively always relied on virtio receive offloads behaving
like GRO - thus even if this breaks any configs it is at least not
a regression.
