I understood the commit message so that Renjith had problems in both
directions, so changing only imtu doesn't look like a good solution.
I started a thread about this on linux-bluetooth:
If no better solutions appear, I think it's best to use 48 as the MTUs
by default, and allow using the getsockopt() method via a module
