Subject[PATCH net v2] L2TP:Adjust intf MTU,factor underlay L3,overlay L2

Subject: [PATCH] L2TP:Adjust intf MTU,factor underlay L3,overlay L2

Take into account all of the tunnel encapsulation headers when setting
up the MTU on the L2TP logical interface device. Otherwise, packets
created by the applications on top of the L2TP layer are larger
than they ought to be, relative to the underlay MTU, leading to
needless fragmentation once the outer IP encap is added.

Specifically, take into account the (outer, underlay) IP header
imposed on the encapsulated L2TP packet, and the Layer 2 header
imposed on the inner IP packet prior to L2TP encapsulation.

Do not assume an Ethernet (non-jumbo) underlay. Use the PMTU mechanism
and the dst entry in the L2TP tunnel socket to directly pull up
the underlay MTU (as the baseline number on top of which the
encapsulation headers are factored in). Fall back to Ethernet MTU
if this fails.
