We now consider this quirk (currently, mainly hosted here) to be obsolete.

That is because the RFC wants us to always fragment while translating from IPv4 to IPv6 based on minMTU6, which undoes any defragmentation done by defrag.

We now want to replace our defragmenter with the kernel's, to reduce the maintenance burden and code and configuration complexity. Linux's defragmenter should probably also be faster and more thoroughly tested than Jool's.

I've actually already been working on this at this branch.

This gave a lot of trouble. We no longer feel like the quirk is entirely obsolete, which means that this issue should be closed.
On the other hand, we still might need to blend well with the kernel's defragmenter in order to implement filtering properly. If that's the case, then this issue can be considered a duplicate of #41.

Therefore, closing.
