net: Support RXFCS feature flag.

When set on hardware that supports the feature,
this causes the Ethernet FCS to be appended
to the end of the skb.

Useful for sniffing packets.

headers. Some drivers set this because the cards can't handle the bigger MTU.
[FIXME: Those cases could be fixed in VLAN code by allowing only reduced-MTU
VLANs. This may be not useful, though.]
* rx-fcs
This requests that the NIC append the Ethernet Frame Checksum (FCS)
to the end of the skb data. This allows sniffers and other tools to
read the CRC recorded by the NIC on receipt of the packet.
