[PATCH 4.14 25/34] bonding: fix PACKET_ORIGDEV regression

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman

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


From: Michal Soltys <soltys@xxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 3c963a3306eada999be5ebf4f293dfa3d3945487 ]

This patch fixes a subtle PACKET_ORIGDEV regression which was a side
effect of fixes introduced by:

6a9e461f6fe4 bonding: pass link-local packets to bonding master also.

... to:

b89f04c61efe bonding: deliver link-local packets with skb->dev set to link that packets arrived on

While 6a9e461f6fe4 restored pre-b89f04c61efe presence of link-local
packets on bonding masters (which is required e.g. by linux bridges
participating in spanning tree or needed for lab-like setups created
with group_fwd_mask) it also caused the originating device
information to be lost due to cloning.

Maciej Åenczykowski proposed another solution that doesn't require
packet cloning and retains original device information - instead of
returning RX_HANDLER_PASS for all link-local packets it's now limited
only to packets from inactive slaves.

At the same time, packets passed to bonding masters retain correct
information about the originating device and PACKET_ORIGDEV can be used
to determine it.

This elegantly solves all issues so far:

- link-local packets that were removed from bonding masters
- LLDP daemons being forced to explicitly bind to slave interfaces
- PACKET_ORIGDEV having no effect on bond interfaces

Fixes: 6a9e461f6fe4 (bonding: pass link-local packets to bonding master also.)
