Hi Yves-Alexis -

I apologize for the problem. It seems to me that tunneling with an
outer MTU that causes the inner MTU to be smaller than the min, is
potentially problematic in other ways as well.

But also it could seem unfortunate that the code with my fix does not
look at actual packet size, but instead only looks at the MTU and then
fails, even if no packet was going to be so large. The intention of
my patch was to prevent a negative number while calculating the
maxfraglen in __ip6_append_data(). An alternative fix maybe to
instead return an error only if the mtu is less than or equal to the
fragheaderlen. Something like:

diff --git a/net/ipv6/ip6_output.c b/net/ipv6/ip6_output.c
index 3763dc01e374..5d912a289b95 100644

maxfraglen = ((mtu - fragheaderlen) & ~7) + fragheaderlen -
sizeof(struct frag_hdr);
(opt ? opt->opt_nflen : 0);
But then we also have to convince ourselves that maxfraglen can never
be <= 0. I'd have to think about that.

I am not sure if others have thoughts on supporting MTUs configured
below the min in the spec.


Thanks.
