At first: good that this is fixed, so far each network driver
had to do the "dev->mtu = new_mtu" in its ndo_change_mtu
callback what can be removed now.

I think the commit description could be improved, the change
isn't specific to dsa switches at all.

And the patch should be annotated "net" because it's a fix.
