Before I did this patch, I changed the .default_mtu field of "struct dst_ops"
to .mtu and converted all users of default_mtu to mtu. fake_dst_ops never
had a default_mtu field, so I did not touch it. I guess this bug is arround
since fake_dst_ops exists. It's now just much easier to trigger as commit
618f9bc74a039da76 changed dst_mtu() to call dst->ops->mtu() unconditionally.
