           Summary: max_rx_pkt_len issues with i40e dpdk SRIOV driver
           Product: DPDK

max_rx_pkt_len issues with i40e dpdk SRIOV driver (net_i40e_vf).
When deployed an SRIOV setup with Intel® Ethernet 700 Series 40GB NIC, we
noticed the traffic with default mtu (1500) is not working.
The maximum MSS which was worked is 1456 ( instead of the default value 1460).
On debugging, it is found that the driver is actually setting the
dev_data->dev_conf.rxmode.max_rx_pkt_len to 1518(ETHER_MAX_LEN) which is wrong.

The max len is not including the vlan tag len( also not including QinQ).

The ETH Overhead is defined as below

#define I40E_ETH_OVERHEAD \
        (ETHER_HDR_LEN + ETHER_CRC_LEN + I40E_VLAN_TAG_SIZE * 2)    which is
equal to 26

so for supporting an MTU size of 1500, the max_rx_pkt_len should be 1526 intead
of 1518.

The i40evf_dev_mtu_set API also wrongly checking the framesize against
ETHER_MAX_LEN(1518) to set the jumbo_frame mode.

The attached patch resolved the issue for our testing. 
Please verify and fix the issue.

Thanks and Regards,
