flow offloading for NAT is different from SFE :

In the first case, you offload the NATing algorithm work to the hardware
that support it, which narrow a lot the supported targets.
In the second case, you optimize the NATing algorithm Linux kernel
implementation for all targets, it's a software and generic optimization.
