Patch for if_igb.h

igb driver declare in sys/dev/e1000/if_igb.c:
  ifp->if_hwassist support (CSUM_TCP|CSUM_UDP|CSUM),

but in sys/dev/e1000/if_igb.h:
 #define CSUM_OFFLOAD (CSUM_IP|CSUM_TCP|CSUM_UDP|CSUM_SCTP)

this difference results = the not optimal in igb_tx_ctx_setup() in sys/dev/e1000/if_igb.c for packets other than TCP|UDP|SCTP.


And i think not work TCP, UDP, SCTP offload for IPv6 (not check), then send IPv6 TCP or UDP network stack sets flags CSUM_TCP_IPV6 or CSUM_UDP_IPV6, but in if_hwassist no CSUM_TCP_IPV6|CSUM_UDP_IPV6.

Hardware support it.
