Subject[PATCH] net: ipv6: don't generate link-local address in any addr_gen_mode
Date
This patch provides an ipv6 proc file named
"disable_gen_linklocal_addr", its absolute path is as follows:
"/proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/<iface>/disable_gen_linklocal_addr".

When the "disable_gen_linklocal_addr" value of a device is 1,
it means that this device does not need the Linux kernel to
automatically generate the ipv6 link-local address no matter
which IN6_ADDR_GEN_MODE is used.

The reasons why the kernel does not need to automatically
generate the ipv6 link-local address are as follows:

(1) In the 3GPP TS 29.061, here is a description as follows:
"in order to avoid any conflict between the link-local address
of the MS and that of the GGSN, the Interface-Identifier used
by the MS to build its link-local address shall be assigned by
the GGSN. The GGSN ensures the uniqueness of this Interface-
Identifier. The MT shall then enforce the use of this
Interface-Identifier by the TE"

In other words, in the cellular network, GGSN determines whether
to reply a solicited RA message by identifying the low 64 bits
of the source address of the received RS message. Therefore,
cellular network device's ipv6 link-local address should be set
as the format of fe80::(GGSN assigned IID).

For example: When using a new kernel and ARPHRD_RAWIP, kernel
will generate an EUI64 format ipv6 link-local address, and the
Linux kernel will uses this link-local address to send RS message.
The result is that the GGSN will not reply to the RS message with
a solicited RA message.

Although the combination of IN6_ADDR_GEN_MODE_NONE + ARPHRD_NONE
can avoid the above problem (1), when the addr_gen_mode is changed
to the IN6_ADDR_GEN_MODE_STABLE_PRIVACY, the above problem still
exist. The detail as follows:

(2) Among global mobile operators, some operators have already
request MT (Mobile Terminal) to support RFC7217, such as AT&T.
This means that the device not only needs the IID assigned by the
GGSN to build the ipv6 link-local address to trigger the RS message,
but also needs to use the stable privacy mode to build the ipv6
global address after receiving the RA.

Obviously using APRHRD_NONE and IN6_ADDR_GEN_MODE_STABLE_PRIVACY
mode cannot achieve this.

In summary, using the "disable_gen_linklocal_addr" proc file can
disable kernel auto generate ipv6 link-local address no matter
which addr_gen_mode is used.
