[PATCH net-next v3 2/2]L2TP:Adjust intf MTU, add underlay L3, L2 hdrs




In existing kernel code, when setting up the L2TP interface, all of the
tunnel encapsulation headers are not taken into account when setting
up the MTU on the  L2TP logical interface device. Due to this, the
packets created by the applications on top of the L2TP layer are larger
than they ought to be, relative to the underlay MTU, which leads to
needless fragmentation once the L2TP packet is encapsulated in an outer IP
packet.

Specifically, the MTU calculation  does not take into account the (outer)
IP header imposed on the encapsulated L2TP packet, and the Layer 2 header
imposed on the inner L2TP packet prior to encapsulation. The patch posted
here takes care of these.

Existing code also seems to assume an Ethernet (non-jumbo) underlay. The
patch uses 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).  Ethernet MTU is
assumed as a fallback only if this fails.

Picked up review comments from James Chapman, added a function
to compute ip header + ip option overhead on a socket, and factored it
into L2TP change-set.
