[PATCH 3.12 007/206] ipv4: fix nexthop attlen check in fib_nh_match

From: Jiri Slaby
Date: Tue Nov 18 2014 - 10:27:38 EST

From: Jiri Pirko <jiri@xxxxxxxxxxx>

3.12-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


[ Upstream commit f76936d07c4eeb36d8dbb64ebd30ab46ff85d9f7 ]

fib_nh_match does not match nexthops correctly. Example:

ip route add 172.16.10/24 nexthop via dev eth0 \
nexthop via dev eth0
ip route del 172.16.10/24 nexthop via dev eth0 \
nexthop via dev eth0

Del command is successful and route is removed. After this patch
applied, the route is correctly matched and result is:
RTNETLINK answers: No such process

Please consider this for stable trees as well.
