Modified files:
	sys/dev/pci    : if_em.c if_em.h if_em_hw.h 

Log message:
Add TCP Segmentation Offload (TSO) support for em(4).  Following chip-sets
are currently known to support TSO;  82575, 82576, 82580, I350, and I210.

Suggested by claudio@.  Feedback and testing from many on tech@.

This means that those of us with supported em(4) variants can look forward to measurably improved network performance.

Well done, mglocker@ and all those who tested!
