Subject: [PATCH 4/6] ipv4: rate limit updating of next hop exceptions with
 same pmtu
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

The tunnel devices call update_pmtu for each packet sent, this causes
contention on the fnhe_lock. Ignore the pmtu update if pmtu is not
actually changed, and there is still plenty of time before the entry
expires.
