Xin Long says: ==================== net: improve the process of redirect and toobig for ipv6 tunnels Now let's say there are 3 kinds of icmp packets to process for tunnels, toobig(needfrag), redirect, others, their process should be: - toobig(needfrag) update the lower dst's pmtu by route cache, also update sk dst's pmtu if possible, or it will be fine if sk dst pmtu will get updated on tx path. - redirect update the lower dst's gw by route cache and return, no need to send this redirect packet to user sk. - others send the packet to user's sk, or it will also be fine to use err_count to count it and report fail link on tx path. All ipv4 tunnels basically follow this while some of ipv6 tunnels are doing in different ways, like ip6gre and ip6_tunnels update tnl dev's mtu instead of updating lower dst pmtu, no redirect process on their err_handlers, which doesn't make any sense and even causes performance problems. This patchset is to improve the process of redirect and toobig for ip6gre ip4ip6, ip6ip6 tunnels, as in ipv4 tunnels. ==================== Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <[email protected]>
