uml: network driver MTU cleanups
A bunch of MTU-related cleanups in the network code. First, there is the addition of the notion of a maximally-sized packet, which is the MTU plus headers. This is used to size the skb that will receive a packet. This allows ether_adjust_skb to go away, as it was used to resize the skb after it was allocated. Since the skb passed into the low-level read routine is no longer resized, and possibly reallocated, there, they (and the write routines) don't need to get an sk_buff **. They just need the sk_buff * now. The callers of ether_adjust_skb still need to do the skb_put, so that's now inlined. The MAX_PACKET definitions in most of the drivers are gone. The set_mtu methods were all the same and did nothing, so they can be removed. The ethertap driver had a typo which doubled the size of the packet rather than adding two bytes to it. It also wasn't defining its setup_size, causing a zero-byte kmalloc and crash when the invalid pointer returned from kmalloc was dereferenced.
