Subject[PATCH 4.4 39/63] net: reevalulate autoflowlabel setting after sysctl setting
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Shaohua Li <shli@fb.com>


[ Upstream commit 513674b5a2c9c7a67501506419da5c3c77ac6f08 ]

sysctl.ip6.auto_flowlabels is default 1. In our hosts, we set it to 2.
If sockopt doesn't set autoflowlabel, outcome packets from the hosts are
supposed to not include flowlabel. This is true for normal packet, but
not for reset packet.

The reason is ipv6_pinfo.autoflowlabel is set in sock creation. Later if
we change sysctl.ip6.auto_flowlabels, the ipv6_pinfo.autoflowlabel isn't
changed, so the sock will keep the old behavior in terms of auto
flowlabel. Reset packet is suffering from this problem, because reset
packet is sent from a special control socket, which is created at boot
time. Since sysctl.ipv6.auto_flowlabels is 1 by default, the control
socket will always have its ipv6_pinfo.autoflowlabel set, even after
user set sysctl.ipv6.auto_flowlabels to 1, so reset packset will always
have flowlabel. Normal sock created before sysctl setting suffers from
the same issue. We can't even turn off autoflowlabel unless we kill all
socks in the hosts.

To fix this, if IPV6_AUTOFLOWLABEL sockopt is used, we use the
autoflowlabel setting from user, otherwise we always call
ip6_default_np_autolabel() which has the new settings of sysctl.

Note, this changes behavior a little bit. Before commit 42240901f7c4
(ipv6: Implement different admin modes for automatic flow labels), the
autoflowlabel behavior of a sock isn't sticky, eg, if sysctl changes,
existing connection will change autoflowlabel behavior. After that
commit, autoflowlabel behavior is sticky in the whole life of the sock.
With this patch, the behavior isn't sticky again.
