[PATCH 3.13.y-ckt 035/122] bridge/mdb: remove wrong use of NLM_F_MULTI

From: Kamal Mostafa
Date: Wed Jun 17 2015 - 18:56:29 EST

3.13.11-ckt22 -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Nicolas Dichtel <nicolas.dichtel@xxxxxxxxx>

commit 821996795973fd52703c35811a03db9fec1ac141 upstream.

NLM_F_MULTI must be used only when a NLMSG_DONE message is sent. In fact,
it is sent only at the end of a dump.

Libraries like libnl will wait forever for NLMSG_DONE.

Fixes: 37a393bc4932 ("bridge: notify mdb changes via netlink")
