Bug description:
  [Impact]
  OpenStack Clouds using GRE overlay tunnels with > 1500 MTU's will observe 
packet fragmentation/networking issues for traffic in overlay networks.

  [Test Case]
  Deploy OpenStack Pike (xenial + pike UCA or artful)
  Create tenant networks using GRE segmentation
  Boot instances
  Instance networking will be broken/slow

  gre_sys devices will be set to mtu=1472 on hypervisor hosts.

  [Regression Potential]
  Minimal; the fix to OVS works around an issue for GRE tunnel port setup via 
rtnetlink by performing a second request once the gre device is setup to set 
the MTU to a high value (65000).

  
  [Original Bug Report]
  Setup:
  Pike neutron 11.0.2-0ubuntu1.1~cloud0
  OVS 2.8.0
  Jumbo frames setttings per: 
https://docs.openstack.org/mitaka/networking-guide/config-mtu.html
  global_physnet_mtu = 9000
  path_mtu = 9000

  Symptoms:
  gre_sys MTU is 1472
  Instances with MTUs > 1500 fail to communicate across GRE

  Temporary Workaround:
  ifconfig gre_sys MTU 9000
  Note: When ovs rebuilds tunnels, such as on a restart, gre_sys MTU is set 
back to default 1472.

  Note: downgrading from OVS 2.8.0 to 2.6.1 resolves the issue.

  Previous behavior:
  With Ocata or Pike and OVS 2.6.x
  gre_sys MTU defaults to 65490
  It remains at 65490 through restarts.

  This may be related to some combination of the following changes in OVS which 
seem to imply MTUs must be set in the ovs database for tunnel interfaces and 
patches:
