Hi Murali

Thanks for the explanation.

However, i looked at the patch you listed as 'fixes'. I don't see what
came before that setting the mtu when an ndo_change_mtu function is
provided. It seems to me, if you provide an ndo_change_mtu, it has to
do the assignment. I don't think you are fixing anything here.

If you do want to move the assignment into the core, please review all
the MAC drivers which implement ndo_change_mtu and remove the
assignment from them.
