ixgbe/ixgbevf: Limit maximum jumbo frame size to 9.5K to avoid Tx hangs
This change limits the PF/VF driver to 9.5K max jumbo frame size in order prevent a possible Tx hang in the adapter when sending frames between pools. All of the parts in ixgbe support a maximum frame of 15.5K for standard traffic, however with SR-IOV or DCB enabled they should be limiting the MTU size to 9.5K. Instead of adding extra checks which would have to change the MTU when we go into or out of these modes it is preferred to just use a standard 9.5K MTU limit for all modes so that this extra overhead can be avoided.
