I know only what I've read, which is that when people tried to connect 
Jumbo-enabled hardware to non-Jumbo enabled hardware, it didn't work. 
Everything I've read says that you need Jumbo-enabled hardware every 
step of the way, end-to-end. If that isn't possible, you should not 
enable Jumbo Frames on the adapter.
