Jan Grashoefer commented on BIT-1515:

Form my understanding "gso" (Generic Segmentation Offload), "tso" (TCP Segmentation Offload) and "ufo" (UDP Segmentation Offload) are only relevant if the monitoring interface is also used to send packets. Furthermore "gso" seems to be Linux specific. [This reference|http://www.linuxfoundation.org/collaborate/workgroups/networking/] provides a good overview.
For "sg" (scatter-gather) I am not sure. I did a quick search and from [what I found|http://www.makelinux.net/ldd3/chp-17-sect-5], I would say it has no effect on Bro.
