[Firehol-support] QOS overhead calculations, PPPoE on leased line

I got the following statement about a leased line:
> The maximum MTU is 1500 bytes, we do not support Jumbo Framing.
> As the service is Ethernet we only use PPPoE, there is no ATM
Can anyone confirm the following calculation is correct?
2 bytes = PPP
6 bytes = PPPoE
14 bytes = Ethernet
22 bytes = total overhead
So for FireQOS:
LINKTYPE="ethernet overhead 22 mtu 1500"
I've based it on info I found here:
in the section: Overhead and MTU Calculations
