bonding: send IPv6 neighbor advertisement on failover
This patch adds better IPv6 failover support for bonding devices, especially when in active-backup mode and there are only IPv6 addresses configured, as reported by Alex Sidorenko. - Creates a new file, net/drivers/bonding/bond_ipv6.c, for the IPv6-specific routines. Both regular bonds and VLANs over bonds are supported. - Adds a new tunable, num_unsol_na, to limit the number of unsolicited IPv6 Neighbor Advertisements that are sent on a failover event. Default is 1. - Creates two new IPv6 neighbor discovery functions: ndisc_build_skb() ndisc_send_skb() These were required to support VLANs since we have to be able to add the VLAN id to the skb since ndisc_send_na() and friends shouldn't be asked to do this. These two routines are basically __ndisc_send() split into two pieces, in a slightly different order. - Updates Documentation/networking/bonding.txt and bumps the rev of bond support to 3.4.0. On failover, this new code will generate one packet: - An unsolicited IPv6 Neighbor Advertisement, which helps the switch learn that the address has moved to the new slave. Testing has shown that sending just the NA results in pretty good behavior when in active-back mode, I saw no lost ping packets for example.
