If a Linux client has GRO (Generic Receive Offload) enabled and connects to a BIG-IP using MPTCP with checksumming, the Linux client may occasionally close the connection with a spurious MPTCP Checksum error.
Connection may fail.
Linux client system using MPTCP with checksums and GRO enabled.
A workaround is to disable GRO on the Linux client system using ethtool.
Improve generation of MPTCP checksums.
