datapath: Support jumbo frames in the datapath device
The datapath has no problems switching jumbo frames (frames with a payload
greater than 1500 bytes), but it has not supported sending and receiving
them to the device itself.  With this commit, the MTU can be set as large
as the minimum MTU size of the devices that are directly attached, or 1500
bytes if there are none.  This mimics the behavior of the Linux bridge.

Feature #1736
