This might currently not be a problem for most users, but (according to RFC
1122, chapter, the MSS should be the minimum of the received MSS
(option) and the 'MTU-minus-headersize'-(calculated)-MSS (effectivly MTU-20
for us).

I think this is very straightforward: since netif already holds the MTU, just
call ip_route on connection setup and calculate the "effective send MSS" based
on the netif's MTU.

This is also a precondition for effectively using path MTU discovery with
