SubjectNext hop and o/p i/f IP address
Hi list
Sorry to bother you with such a trivial query.

To make a routing decision ip_route_input() is called. It fills the skb->dst
with appropriate entry. Can anyone point to the exact location where I can find
the next hop and output interface IP address.

It seems
skb->dst->dev->ip_ptr->in_dev->ifa_list->ifa_address is o/p i/f ip address and
skb->dst->neighbour->dev->ip_ptr->in_dev->ifa_list->ifa_address is next hop IP

Please correct me if I am wrong.
Thanks for all the help.
