Veaceslav Falico - Jan. 10, 2014, 3:56 p.m.
Currently, after changing the MTU for a device, dev_set_mtu() calls
NETDEV_CHANGEMTU notification, however doesn't verify it's return code -
which can be NOTIFY_BAD - i.e. some of the net notifier blocks refused this
change, and continues nevertheless.

To fix this, verify the return code, and if it's an error - then revert the
MTU to the original one, notify again and pass the error code.

Notes:
    v1 -> v2:
    Notify again after we've reverted the MTU back to the original, so that
    everyone has a chance to change its MTU back.
