With this change, the comment at wiretap/libpcap.c:769 is stale since it still references 64KB. Not a major issue, but makes me wonder where else in the code we've accidentally hardcoded that assumption... I guess we'll find out :)

8cde7a7 by Guy Harris ([email protected]):

    Boost the maximum packet size to 131072.

    Libpcap 1.6/tcpdump 4.6 will support up to 131072, as the MTU on the
    Linux loopback device is 65536 on at least some versions of the kernel,
    and that doesn't count the fake Ethernet header, so the maximum packet
    size is 65549; they went to the next power of 2 up.
