Subject[PATCH 4.15 063/122] net/sched: cls_u32: fix cls_u32 on filter replace
4.15-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Ivan Vecera <>

[ Upstream commit eb53f7af6f15285e2f6ada97285395343ce9f433 ]

The following sequence is currently broken:

# tc qdisc add dev foo ingress
# tc filter replace dev foo protocol all ingress \
u32 match u8 0 0 action mirred egress mirror dev bar1
# tc filter replace dev foo protocol all ingress \
handle 800::800 pref 49152 \
u32 match u8 0 0 action mirred egress mirror dev bar2
Error: cls_u32: Key node flags do not match passed flags.
We have an error talking to the kernel, -1

The error comes from u32_change() when comparing new and
existing flags. The existing ones always contains one of
TCA_CLS_FLAGS_{,NOT}_IN_HW flag depending on offloading state.
These flags cannot be passed from userspace so the condition
(n->flags != flags) in u32_change() always fails.

Fix the condition so the flags TCA_CLS_FLAGS_NOT_IN_HW and
TCA_CLS_FLAGS_IN_HW are not taken into account.

Fixes: 24d3dc6d27ea ("net/sched: cls_u32: Reflect HW offload status")
