[Bridge] [PATCH] bridge:fragmented packets dropped by bridge

Yes it is about the frag_size check in br_nf_ip_fragment(). As i said
without br_netfilter the packets forwarding is fine.
And I feel it is weird that br_nf_dev_queue_xmit() use out dev's mtu
to decide whether to do the fragmentation, but
then br_nf_ip_fragment() use bridge's mtu to do the actual fragmentation.

And in this case fragmented packets fit the out dev mtu but were
dropped, I think it is not right.
