batman-adv: fix soft-interface MTU computation
The current MTU computation always returns a value smaller than 1500bytes even if the real interfaces have an MTU large enough to compensate the batman-adv overhead. Fix the computation by properly returning the highest admitted value. Introduced by a19d3d85e1b854e4a483a55d740a42458085560d ("batman-adv: limit local translation table max size") Reported-by: Russell Senior <russell@personaltelco.net> Signed-off-by: Antonio Quartulli <antonio@meshcoding.com> Signed-off-by: Marek Lindner <mareklindner@neomailbox.ch>
