Support for different MTU size between SD/SSM and Compute hosts in Platform Symphony

We would like to see Platform Symphony support different network MTU size such as 1500 and 9000 on different Symphony servers so SD/SSM can be at 1550 MTU and compute nodes can run at 9000 MTU and vice-versa. Basically we want Platform Symphony to be certified on platforms reagrdless of what MTU size is set for network connections as long as MTU discovery is enabled on all hosts.
