    Subject[v2.6.34-stable 027/165] ipv6: Add GSO support on forwarding path
    From: Herbert Xu <>

    This is a commit scheduled for the next v2.6.34 longterm release.
    If you see a problem with using this for longterm, please comment.

    commit 0aa68271510ae2b221d4b60892103837be63afe4 upstream.

    Currently we disallow GSO packets on the IPv6 forward path.
    This patch fixes this.

    Note that I discovered that our existing GSO MTU checks (e.g.,
    IPv4 forwarding) are buggy in that they skip the check altogether,
    when they really should be checking gso_size + header instead.

    I have also been lazy here in that I haven't bothered to segment
    the GSO packet by hand before generating an ICMP message. Someone
    should add that to be 100% correct.
