Subject[PATCH 4.12 18/52] ipv6: set dst.obsolete when a cached route has expired
Date
4.12-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Xin Long <lucien.xin@gmail.com>


[ Upstream commit 1e2ea8ad37be25a7cdcc974945935829d534d5d3 ]

Now it doesn't check for the cached route expiration in ipv6's
dst_ops->check(), because it trusts dst_gc that would clean the
cached route up when it's expired.

The problem is in dst_gc, it would clean the cached route only
when it's refcount is 1. If some other module (like xfrm) keeps
holding it and the module only release it when dst_ops->check()
fails.

But without checking for the cached route expiration, .check()
may always return true. Meanwhile, without releasing the cached
route, dst_gc couldn't del it. It will cause this cached route
never to expire.

This patch is to set dst.obsolete with DST_OBSOLETE_KILL in .gc
when it's expired, and check obsolete != DST_OBSOLETE_FORCE_CHK
in .check.

Note that this is even needed when ipv6 dst_gc timer is removed
one day. It would set dst.obsolete in .redirect and .update_pmtu
instead, and check for cached route expiration when getting it,
just like what ipv4 route does.
