    Path MTU discovery implementation · 29ae5d8a
    Olivier SOLDANO authored
    This implementation uses gnutls dtls heartbeat API to test path MTU.
    heartbeat allowing messages with automated response in a datagram,
    the application is able to guess the MTU via a timeout in the heartbeat.
    (timeout on packet sent and no response, implies that the MTU is lower
    than the lost payload.)
    To minimize false positives (a response is lost for example), each attempt
    triggers one retry on the first timeout.
    This version ensures a minimal MTU of 512 bytes will be returned in
    case of any failure in the procedure.
    For retrocompatibility with non heartbeat capable clients,
    a fallback MTU is set at 1280.
