I think it would be better to drop MPTCP_PM_MAX_ADDR and keep 
MPTCP_PM_ADDR_MAX in pm_netlink.c where it is used. Each PM can decide 
what's the maximum number of addresses it can support.

MPTCP_PM_MAX_ADDR seems to be a left over from a previous implementation 
of a PM that has not been upstreamed but replaced by the Netlink PM later.

Also, please always add "net" or "net-next" prefix in the subject of 
your email to help -net maintainers. Do not hesitate to look at the 
netdev FAQ for more details.

Here this patch looks like a fix so you should have [PATCH net] and a 
"Fixes" tag. I guess for this patch you can use:

   Fixes: 1b1c7a0ef7f3 ("mptcp: Add path manager interface")

That's where MPTCP_PM_MAX_ADDR has been introduced. It was already not 
used and never used later.
