      rh-ee-xudu reported a problem with setting tcp-data-split in RHEL-32112. I investigated and found the following:

          Disabling tcp-data-split on idpf silently fails:
            # ethtool -G $NETDEV tcp-data-split off
            # ethtool -g $NETDEV | grep 'TCP data split'
            TCP data split:        on
          But it works if you also change 'tx' or 'rx':
            # ethtool -G $NETDEV tcp-data-split off tx 256
            # ethtool -g $NETDEV | grep 'TCP data split'
            TCP data split:        off
          The bug is in idpf_set_ringparam, where it takes a shortcut out if the
          TX and RX sizes are not changing.

      Please provide the package NVR for which bug is seen:

      The CKI build from RHEL-29553.
