net: ipv4: update fnhe_pmtu when first hop's MTU changes

Since commit 5aad1de5 ("ipv4: use separate genid for next hop
exceptions"), exceptions get deprecated separately from cached
routes. In particular, administrative changes don't clear PMTU anymore.

As Stefano described in commit e9fa1495 ("ipv6: Reflect MTU changes
on PMTU of exceptions for MTU-less routes"), the PMTU discovered before
the local MTU change can become stale:
 - if the local MTU is now lower than the PMTU, that PMTU is now
 - if the local MTU was the lowest value in the path, and is increased,
   we might discover a higher PMTU

Similarly to what commit e9fa1495 did for IPv6, update PMTU in those

If the exception was locked, the discovered PMTU was smaller than the
minimal accepted PMTU. In that case, if the new local MTU is smaller
than the current PMTU, let PMTU discovery figure out if locking of the
exception is still needed.

To do this, we need to know the old link MTU in the NETDEV_CHANGEMTU
notifier. By the time the notifier is called, dev->mtu has been
changed. This patch adds the old MTU as additional information in the
notifier structure, and a new call_netdevice_notifiers_u32() function.

Fixes: 5aad1de5 ("ipv4: use separate genid for next hop exceptions")
