We need to explain the problem and remind the administrator to have
'ethtool' installed.

- *Wrong UDP checksums in DHCP network packets:*
If an instance communicates with the metadata daemon and uses DHCP to
obtain its IP address on the provided virtual network interface,
it can happen that UDP packets have a wrong checksum, due to
a bug in virtio. See for example
Ganeti works around this bug by disabling the UDP checksums on the way
from a host to instances (only on the special metadata communication
network interface) using the ethtool command. Therefore if using
the metadata daemon the host nodes should have this tool available.
