Hi, this conflict needs to be resolved differently. Below I'm adding a
patch on top of linux-next. Squash or apply as you see fit.

What's the right way to proceed from here? It looks to me like Stefano
or Steffen should take this into the ipsec tree (possibly just squash to
the clamping fix), as they'll hit this conflict the next time they
rebase on top of net...? Let me know what to do, please.

Subject: [PATCH linux-next] net: ip_tunnel: Call dev_set_mtu to set
clamped MTU

When adding a new IP tunnel link, MTU is clamped to sane bounds.
However, since the new MTU value is directly assigned to the netdevice,
instead of going through dev_set_mtu, the change is done without sending
the usual NETDEV_PRECHANGEMTU and NETDEV_CHANGEMTU events. Thus drivers
don't get to learn about the clamped MTU value.
