I have a very basic question about jumbo frame support for ixgbe.

I understand that some drivers support jumbo frame and 
if it receive jumbo packet (greater than 1500 byte), it creates
mbuf chains and pass it to DPDK application through 
e.g. rte_eth_rx_burst.

However it looks that ixgbe driver does not support jumbo frame.

Q1. Is my understanding above correct?
Q2. If A1 equals YES, then are there any future plan to support 
jumbo frame on ixgbe?
