parentvti4: Don't override MTU passed on link creation via IFLA_MTU (diff)
vti6: Properly adjust vti6 MTU from MTU of lower device
If a lower device is found, we don't need to subtract LL_MAX_HEADER to calculate our MTU: just use its MTU, the link layer headers are already taken into account by it. If the lower device is not found, start from ETH_DATA_LEN instead, and only in this case subtract a worst-case LL_MAX_HEADER. We then need to subtract our additional IPv6 header from the calculation. While at it, note that vti6 doesn't have a hardware header, so it doesn't need to set dev->hard_header_len. And as vti6_link_config() now always sets the MTU, there's no need to set a default value in vti6_dev_setup(). This makes the behaviour consistent with IPv4 vti, after commit a32452366b72 ("vti4: Don't count header length twice."), which was accidentally reverted by merge commit f895f0cfbb77 ("Merge branch 'master' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/klassert/ipsec"). While commit 53c81e95df17 ("ip6_vti: adjust vti mtu according to mtu of lower device") improved on the original situation, this was still not ideal. As reported in that commit message itself, if we start from an underlying veth MTU of 9000, we end up with an MTU of 8832, that is, 9000 - LL_MAX_HEADER - sizeof(ipv6hdr). This should simply be 8880, or 9000 - sizeof(ipv6hdr) instead: we found the lower device (veth) and we know we don't have any additional link layer header, so there's no need to subtract an hypothetical worst-case number.
