Subject[PATCH net v2] net: vrf: Fix ping failed when vrf mtu is set to 0
Date
From: Miaohe Lin <linmiaohe@huawei.com>

When the mtu of a vrf device is set to 0, it would cause ping
failed. So I think we should limit vrf mtu in a reasonable range
to solve this problem. I set dev->min_mtu to 1280, so it will
works for both ipv4 and ipv6. And if dev->max_mtu still be 0
can be confusing, so I set dev->max_mtu to 0xFFFFU.

Here is the reproduce step:

1.Config vrf interface and set mtu to 0:
3: enp4s0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc fq_codel
master vrf1 state UP mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000
link/ether 52:54:00:9e:dd:c1 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff

2.Ping peer:
3: enp4s0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc fq_codel
master vrf1 state UP group default qlen 1000
link/ether 52:54:00:9e:dd:c1 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
inet 10.0.0.1/16 scope global enp4s0
valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
connect: Network is unreachable

3.Set mtu to default value, ping works:
PING 10.0.0.2 (10.0.0.2) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 10.0.0.2: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=1.88 ms
