Subject: [PATCH 2/8] netfilter: nfnetlink: nfnetlink_unicast() reports EAGAIN instead of ENOBUFS
Date: Mon, 31 Aug 2020 11:36:42 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200831093648.20765-3-pablo@netfilter.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200831093648.20765-1-pablo@netfilter.org>

Frontend callback reports EAGAIN to nfnetlink to retry a command, this
is used to signal that module autoloading is required. Unfortunately,
nlmsg_unicast() reports EAGAIN in case the receiver socket buffer gets
full, so it enters a busy-loop.

This patch updates nfnetlink_unicast() to turn EAGAIN into ENOBUFS and
to use nlmsg_unicast(). Remove the flags field in nfnetlink_unicast()
since this is always MSG_DONTWAIT in the existing code which is exactly
what nlmsg_unicast() passes to netlink_unicast() as parameter.

Fixes: 96518518cc41 ("netfilter: add nftables")
