Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 581/671] ip6erspan: remove the incorrect mtu limit for ip6erspan

From: Haishuang Yan <yanhaishuang@...s.chinamobile.com>

[ Upstream commit 4123f637a5129470ff9d3cb00a5a4e213f2e15cc ]

ip6erspan driver calls ether_setup(), after commit 61e84623ace3
("net: centralize net_device min/max MTU checking"), the range
of mtu is [min_mtu, max_mtu], which is [68, 1500] by default.

It causes the dev mtu of the erspan device to not be greater
than 1500, this limit value is not correct for ip6erspan tap
device.

Fixes: 61e84623ace3 ("net: centralize net_device min/max MTU checking")
