Hello,

from https://github.com/google/syzkaller/blob/master/docs/syzbot.md

"syzbot system continuously fuzzes main Linux kernel branches and automatically reports found bugs to kernel mailing lists."

As I understand it, fuzzing is applying changes to inputs to see what breaks and, in this case, fix it.

It doesn't make sense to set an MTU to 0 so why allow the program to crash on setting the MTU to zero instead of giving back a useful error or preventing the crash in other ways.

Providing dev->min_mtu and dev->max_mtu bounds is a nice thing to do.

Samir
