And clog the fxp1 link between RE and PFE.

All in all, it's a stupid idea. :-)

And personally, I've never seen transit_re working. There seems to be
more to the story than just the sysctl.

BTW: the FreeBSD ethernet driver for fxp0 doesn't support MTU >1500
as far as I know, so you cannot raise MTU even with tricks.
