ipv6: Don't create clones of host routes.
Addresses https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=29252 Addresses https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=30462 In commit d80bc0fd262ef840ed4e82593ad6416fa1ba3fc4 ("ipv6: Always clone offlink routes.") we forced the kernel to always clone offlink routes. The reason we do that is to make sure we never bind an inetpeer to a prefixed route. The logic turned on here has existed in the tree for many years, but was always off due to a protecting CPP define. So perhaps it's no surprise that there is a logic bug here. The problem is that we canot clone a route that is already a host route (ie. has DST_HOST set). Because if we do, an identical entry already exists in the routing tree and therefore the ip6_rt_ins() call is going to fail. This sets off a series of failures and high cpu usage, because when ip6_rt_ins() fails we loop retrying this operation a few times in order to handle a race between two threads trying to clone and insert the same host route at the same time. Fix this by simply using the route as-is when DST_HOST is set. Reported-by: slash@ac.auone-net.jp Reported-by: Ernst Sjöstrand <ernstp@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
