If I'm not mistaken, 9000bytes is the max.

From acenic.c (By D.Becker of course)

 * To enable jumbo frames, simply specify an mtu between 1500 and 9000
 * bytes to ifconfig. Jumbo frames can be enabled or disabled at any time 
 * by running `ifconfig eth<X> mtu <MTU>' with <X> being the Ethernet
 * interface number and <MTU> being the MTU value.
