This demonstrates turning off hardware offload at the ethtool level.
However, even with that, I believe that OVS will still try to use it if
OVS is configured for hardware offload.  It looks like your OVS does
have hardware offload enabled.  To turn it off, run:

ovs-vsctl set Open_vSwitch . other-config:hw-offload=false

Then restart OVS and see if it makes a difference.
