net: avoid reference counter overflows on fib_rules in multicast forwarding
[ Upstream commit 95f4a45de1a0f172b35451fc52283290adb21f6e ] Bob Falken reported that after 4G packets, multicast forwarding stopped working. This was because of a rule reference counter overflow which freed the rule as soon as the overflow happend. This patch solves this by adding the FIB_LOOKUP_NOREF flag to fib_rules_lookup calls. This is safe even from non-rcu locked sections as in this case the flag only implies not taking a reference to the rule, which we don't need at all. Rules only hold references to the namespace, which are guaranteed to be available during the call of the non-rcu protected function reg_vif_xmit because of the interface reference which itself holds a reference to the net namespace. Fixes: f0ad0860d01e47 ("ipv4: ipmr: support multiple tables") Fixes: d1db275dd3f6e4 ("ipv6: ip6mr: support multiple tables") Reported-by: Bob Falken <NetFestivalHaveFun@gmx.com> Cc: Patrick McHardy <kaber@trash.net> Cc: Thomas Graf <tgraf@suug.ch> Cc: Julian Anastasov <ja@ssi.bg> Cc: Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Hannes Frederic Sowa <hannes@stressinduktion.org> Acked-by: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@google.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
