Subject[PATCH net-next v1 3/3] af_vsock: Assign the vsock transport considering the vsock address flag
Date
The vsock flag has been set in the connect and (listen) receive paths.

When the vsock transport is assigned, the remote CID is used to
distinguish between types of connection.

Use the vsock flag (in addition to the CID) from the remote address to
decide which vsock transport to assign. For the sibling VMs use case,
all the vsock packets need to be forwarded to the host, so always assign
the guest->host transport if the vsock flag is set. For the other use
cases, the vsock transport assignment logic is not changed.
