Description (partial)


- Incorrect MTU for MPLS forwarding entries:

sho mpls forwarding interface tenGigE 0/0/5/0 detail
16002  Pop         <prefix>     Te0/0/5/0    <next hop> 1273896609
     MAC/Encaps: 14/18, MTU: 1520   <=================

- Incorrect MPLS MTU on the interface:

sh im chains tenGigE 0/0/5/0
TenGigE0/0/5/0, nodeid:0x1 control chains:

Interface  TenGigE0/0/5/0, ifh 0x01080080 (up, 4484)
  [pic:0x26404, intf_flags:0x2005]
  Protocol        Caps (state, mtu)
   <base>          qos_out (up, 4484)
                   ether (up, 4484)
   mpls            mpls (up, 0)  <============
   arp             arp (up, 4470)
   ipv4            ipv4 (up, 4470)
   ether_sock      ether_sock (up, 4470)

- Incorrect mtu in show mpls int location:

sh mpls interfaces location 0/0/CPU0
Tue Nov 10 12:29:17.354 MET gmt
Interface      IFH         MTU 
-------------- ---------- -----
Te0/0/5/0      0x01080080  1520

- Errors in the traces:

In 3.6 and older releases, it's possible that IM would return EAGAIN for an MTU operation and the mpls code would not handle this correctly when an mpls mtu is configured.

This issue will not be hit in 3.7 onwards since IM no longer returns try-again for mtu operations.
