I may be mistaken then in how this should be setup when using rmnet.
For the qmi_wwan case using add_mux/del_mux (Daniele correct me if
wrong!), we do need to configure the MTU of the master interface to be
equal to the aggregation data size reported via QMI WDA before
creating any mux link; see
http://paldan.altervista.org/linux-qmap-qmi_wwan-multiple-pdn-setup/

I ended up doing the same here for the rmnet case; but if it's not
needed I can definitely change that. I do recall that I originally had
left the master MTU untouched in the rmnet case and users had issues,
and increasing it to the aggregation size solved that; I assume that's
because the MTU should have been increased to accommodate the extra
MAP header as you said. How much more size does it need on top of the
1500 bytes?
