ipv6: silence log messages for locally generated multicast
This patch fixes minor annoyance during transmission of unsolicited neighbor advertisements from userspace to multicast addresses (as far as I can see in RFC, this is allowed and the similar functionality for IPv4 has been in arping for a long time). Outgoing multicast packets get reinserted into local processing as if they are received from the network. The machine thus sees its own NA and fills the logs with error messages. This patch removes the message if NA has been generated locally. Signed-off-by: Jan Sembera <jsembera@suse.cz> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
