Hello Matthew,

We have e1000 and vmxnet3 in Debian Squeeze, Debian Wheezy and SLES9-11, 
no problems in that regard whatsoever. As far as I know this also 
depends on the NICs built into the host as well as the vSwitch. I.e. I 
had IPv6 TSO issues on a VMware 5.0 with Nexus 1000V using VXLAN, while 
the same hardware works nice with VLANs or the standard VMware switch.
