Anders Franzen - Nov. 24, 2010, 3:47 p.m.
The ip6_tunnel always assumes it consumes 40 bytes (ip6 hdr) of the mtu of the
underlaying device. So for a normal ethernet bearer, the mtu of the ip6_tunnel is
1460.
However, when creating a tunnel the encap limit option is enabled by default, and it
consumes 8 bytes more, so the true mtu shall be 1452.

I dont really know if this breaks some statement in some RFC, so this is a request for
comments.
