Subject: [PATCH -next crap] net: icmp: work around bogus pmtu errors

sometimes tcp connections seem to hang.
tcpdump shows broken path mtu reports.  This "fix" avoids hang and gives:

[633.327834] icmp: 192.0.0.2 reports mtu 1474 for packet size 1474 to host 204.236.132.12
[635.586945] icmp: 192.0.0.2 reports mtu 1474 for packet size 1474 to host 54.219.255.254
[647.106708] icmp: 192.0.0.2 reports mtu 1474 for packet size 1466 to host 204.236.132.12
[663.084586] icmp: 192.0.0.2 reports mtu 1474 for packet size 1466 to host 54.219.255.254

sigh.

 Might be caused by DS-LITE.  I either need the turd below or iptables TCPMSS
 mangling rules to artificially lower received mss.

 I don't mind if this is rejected; I'm mostly wondering if anyone
 else came across suprise like this.
