An offload target makes this status indication to request that the host stack resume offloading state objects to it. After an offload target makes this indication, the host stack queries OID_TCP_TASK_OFFLOAD to obtain the offload target's TCP offload capabilities. The offload target can use this opportunity to report a different set of offload capabilities than it reported during initialization. An offload target can thus use the pause/resume offload mechanism to change its reported TCP offload capabilities.
Note that an offload target does not have to request that the host stack resume offloads. In this case, the offload target keeps processing segments on offloaded TCP connections. However, the host stack will not offload any more state objects to the offload target until the offload target makes the resume offload indication.
