maybe you receive one interrupt per incoming frame, and your cpu is fast
enough to handle the load.

tcpdump should show big incoming TCP frames (multi segment)

(GRO only helps TCP receivers)

Example here :

09:16:32.372949 IP > .
2372863:2374311(1448) ack 3136 win 73 <nop,nop,timestamp 317934201

09:16:32.372975 IP > .
2374311:2377207(2896) ack 3136 win 73 <nop,nop,timestamp 317934201

Here, you can see GRO work, since 2nd "frame" is the result of two MTU
sized frames.
