I used this snippet on loopback with UFO enabled and lo mtu 1280.

#include <sys/types.h>
#include <sys/socket.h>
#include <netinet/in.h>
#include <arpa/inet.h>
#include <linux/udp.h>
#include <stdio.h>

int test(int mtu)
        int fd;
        const int one = 1;
        const int off = 0;
        struct sockaddr_in addr = {.sin_family = AF_INET, .sin_port = htons(53) };
        unsigned char buffer[3701];

        inet_pton(AF_INET, "", &addr.sin_addr);

        fd = socket(AF_INET, SOCK_DGRAM, 0);
        connect(fd, (struct sockaddr *) &addr, sizeof(addr));

        setsockopt(fd, IPPROTO_UDP, UDP_CORK, &one, sizeof(one));

        write(fd, " ", 1);
        write(fd, buffer, sizeof(buffer));
        write(fd, " ", 1);

        setsockopt(fd, IPPROTO_UDP, UDP_CORK, &off, sizeof(off));


int main() {
