net IPv6 : Fix broken IPv6 routing table after loopback down-up
IPv6 Routing table becomes broken once we do ifdown, ifup of the loopback(lo) interface. After down-up, routes of other interface's IPv6 addresses through 'lo' are lost. IPv6 addresses assigned to all interfaces are routed through 'lo' for internal communication. Once 'lo' is down, those routing entries are removed from routing table. But those removed entries are not being re-created properly when 'lo' is brought up. So IPv6 addresses of other interfaces becomes unreachable from the same machine. Also this breaks communication with other machines because of NDISC packet processing failure. This patch fixes this issue by reading all interface's IPv6 addresses and adding them to IPv6 routing table while bringing up 'lo'. ==Testing== Before applying the patch: $ route -A inet6 Kernel IPv6 routing table Destination Next Hop Flag Met Ref Use If 2000::20/128 :: U 256 0 0 eth0 fe80::/64 :: U 256 0 0 eth0 ::/0 :: !n -1 1 1 lo ::1/128 :: Un 0 1 0 lo 2000::20/128 :: Un 0 1 0 lo fe80::xxxx:xxxx:xxxx:xxxx/128 :: Un 0 1 0 lo ff00::/8 :: U 256 0 0 eth0 ::/0 :: !n -1 1 1 lo $ sudo ifdown lo $ sudo ifup lo $ route -A inet6 Kernel IPv6 routing table Destination Next Hop Flag Met Ref Use If 2000::20/128 :: U 256 0 0 eth0 fe80::/64 :: U 256 0 0 eth0 ::/0 :: !n -1 1 1 lo ::1/128 :: Un 0 1 0 lo ff00::/8 :: U 256 0 0 eth0 ::/0 :: !n -1 1 1 lo $ After applying the patch: $ route -A inet6 Kernel IPv6 routing table Destination Next Hop Flag Met Ref Use If 2000::20/128 :: U 256 0 0 eth0 fe80::/64 :: U 256 0 0 eth0 ::/0 :: !n -1 1 1 lo ::1/128 :: Un 0 1 0 lo 2000::20/128 :: Un 0 1 0 lo fe80::xxxx:xxxx:xxxx:xxxx/128 :: Un 0 1 0 lo ff00::/8 :: U 256 0 0 eth0 ::/0 :: !n -1 1 1 lo $ sudo ifdown lo $ sudo ifup lo $ route -A inet6 Kernel IPv6 routing table Destination Next Hop Flag Met Ref Use If 2000::20/128 :: U 256 0 0 eth0 fe80::/64 :: U 256 0 0 eth0 ::/0 :: !n -1 1 1 lo ::1/128 :: Un 0 1 0 lo 2000::20/128 :: Un 0 1 0 lo fe80::xxxx:xxxx:xxxx:xxxx/128 :: Un 0 1 0 lo ff00::/8 :: U 256 0 0 eth0 ::/0 :: !n -1 1 1 lo $ Signed-off-by: Balakumaran Kannan <Balakumaran.Kannan@ap.sony.com> Signed-off-by: Maruthi Thotad <Maruthi.Thotad@ap.sony.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
