value returned from a successful call to net_protocol_lookup(9F).
The net_getmtu() function receives information about the current MTU of a network interface. The value returned from this function call should not be cached as the MTU of a network interface since it is not guaranteed to be constant.
The net_getmtu() function returns -1 if the network protocol does not support this feature and otherwise returns the current MTU of the network interface.
The net_getmtu() function may be called from user, kernel, or interrupt context.
