Subject: [RFC v2 -next 2/2] virtio_net: Read the advised MTU

This patch checks the feature bit for the VIRTIO_NET_F_MTU feature. If it
exists, read the advised MTU and use it.

No proper error handling is provided for the case where a user changes the
negotiated MTU. A future commit will add proper error handling. Instead, a
warning is emitted if the guest changes the device MTU after previously
being given advice.

Signed-off-by: Aaron Conole <aconole@...heb.org>

v2:
* Whitespace cleanup in the last hunk
* Code style change around the pr_warn
* Additional test for mtu change before printing warning
