Note: it would be wrong to increase PMTU merely due to a receipt of a validated ICMP PTB message received in response to a PMTU probe.  Only an ACK of a probe can increase PMTU to the probe's size.  But a receipt of such ICMP PTB message can trigger a new PMTU probe of the given size.

All of this is a subject to DPLPMTUD specification.  Hence, I did not include it in this PR.
