The Hyper-V host doesn't support MTU below 1500. If we try setting MTU to a
value < 1500, the host will use 1500 automatically and return 1500 in the
RNDIS_OID_GEN_MAXIMUM_FRAME_SIZE query and guest will also use it. That's
why I set the lower limit to ETH_DATA_LEN.

Are you suggesting that we keep the 68 as the lower limit, and let the host
auto-reset it to 1500 when we trying to set an MTU < 1500?

Thanks,
- Haiyang
