Not really.

Sending TSO packets with 44 MSS in them instead of 45 might in fact help
a bit. I never could detect any difference.

LRO/GRO receivers aggregate at most 17 or 22 segments anyway.

I said 56000 only as a quick way to test the thing

If you want an explicit formula, it might be :

SKB_WITH_OVERHEAD(65535 - LL_MAX_HEADER) or something like that...
