[PATCH 3.16.y-ckt 128/133] net/ipv6: Correct PIM6 mrt_lock handling

From: Luis Henriques
Date: Wed Sep 30 2015 - 05:55:14 EST

3.16.7-ckt18 -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Richard Laing <richard.laing@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 25b4a44c19c83d98e8c0807a7ede07c1f28eab8b upstream.

In the IPv6 multicast routing code the mrt_lock was not being released
correctly in the MFC iterator, as a result adding or deleting a MIF would
cause a hang because the mrt_lock could not be acquired.

This fix is a copy of the code for the IPv4 case and ensures that the lock
is released correctly.
