When bridging interfaces with different MTUs, the bridge correctly
chooses the minimum of the MTUs of the physical devices as the bridges
MTU. But when a frame is passed which fits through the incoming, but
not through the outgoing interface, a "Fragmentation Needed" packet is
generated.

However, the propagated MTU is hardcoded to 1500, which is wrong in this
situation. The sender will repeat the packet again with the same frame
size, and the same problem will occur again.

Instead of sending 1500, the (correct) MTU value of the bridge is now
sent via PMTU. To achieve this, the corresponding rtable structure is
stored in its net_bridge structure.
