net: bridge: remove ipv6 zero address check in mcast queries
Recently a check was added which prevents marking of routers with zero source address, but for IPv6 that cannot happen as the relevant RFCs actually forbid such packets: RFC 2710 (MLDv1): "To be valid, the Query message MUST come from a link-local IPv6 Source Address, be at least 24 octets long, and have a correct MLD checksum." Same goes for RFC 3810. And also it can be seen as a requirement in ipv6_mc_check_mld_query() which is used by the bridge to validate the message before processing it. Thus any queries with :: source address won't be processed anyway. So just remove the check for zero IPv6 source address from the query processing function. Fixes: 5a2de63fd1a5 ("bridge: do not add port to router list when receives query with source 0.0.0.0") Signed-off-by: Nikolay Aleksandrov <nikolay@cumulusnetworks.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
