Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.14 043/103] IB/ipoib: Ensure that MTU isn't less than minimum permitted
Date
From: Muhammad Sammar <muhammads@mellanox.com>

[ Upstream commit 142a9c287613560edf5a03c8d142c8b6ebc1995b ]

It is illegal to change MTU to a value lower than the minimum MTU
stated in ethernet spec. In addition to that we need to add 4 bytes
for encapsulation header (IPOIB_ENCAP_LEN).

Before "ifconfig ib0 mtu 0" command, succeeds while it obviously shouldn't.
