Subject: [PATCH net-next v2] ipv6: add IFLA_INET6_RA_MTU to expose mtu value in the RA message
Date: Sat, 31 Jul 2021 09:52:30 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210731015230.11589-1-rocco.yue@mediatek.com> (raw)

The kernel provides a "/proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/<iface>/mtu"
file, which can temporarily record the mtu value of the last
received RA message when the RA mtu value is lower than the
interface mtu, but this proc has following limitations:

(1) when the interface mtu (/sys/class/net/<iface>/mtu) is
updeated, mtu6 (/proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/<iface>/mtu) will
be updated to the value of interface mtu;
(2) mtu6 (/proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/<iface>/mtu) only affect
ipv6 connection, and not affect ipv4.

Therefore, when the mtu option is carried in the RA message,
there will be a problem that the user sometimes cannot obtain
RA mtu value correctly by reading mtu6.

After this patch set, if a RA message carries the mtu option,
you can send a netlink msg which nlmsg_type is RTM_GETLINK,
and then by parsing the attribute of IFLA_INET6_RA_MTU to
get the mtu value carried in the RA message received on the
inet6 device.

In this way, if the MTU values that the device receives from
the network in the PCO IPv4 and the RA IPv6 procedures are
different, the user space process can read ra_mtu to get
the mtu value carried in the RA message without worrying
about the issue of ipv4 being stuck due to the late arrival
of RA message. After comparing the value of ra_mtu and ipv4
mtu, then the device can use the lower MTU value for both
IPv4 and IPv6.
