[PATCH net-next v4 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.

Change-set here (2/2) uses the new kernel API to compute the IP overhead
on an IPv4 or IPv6 socket, introduced in 1/2, in the L2TP Eth device setup
to factor the additional encap overheads from the underlay IP header and
Ethernet header on overlay (inner packet), to size the MTU on the L2TP
logical device to its correct value.
