Subject[PATCH 4.10 19/63] net: bridge: allow IPv6 when multicast flood is disabled
Date
4.10-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Mike Manning <mmanning@brocade.com>


[ Upstream commit 8953de2f02ad7b15e4964c82f9afd60f128e4e98 ]

Even with multicast flooding turned off, IPv6 ND should still work so
that IPv6 connectivity is provided. Allow this by continuing to flood
multicast traffic originated by us.

Fixes: b6cb5ac8331b ("net: bridge: add per-port multicast flood flag")
