Re: [PATCH] bridge: mcast snooping, fix IPv6 MLD checksum calculation

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

So instead of 'if (!csum_fold(skb2->csum))' it should be this?
---
if (!csum_ipv6_magic(&ip6h->saddr, &ip6h->daddr,
                     skb2->len, nexthdr, skb2->csum))
---
(I'm peeking a little bit at
http://lxr.linux.no/linux+*/net/ipv6/netfilter.c#L98)

Hmm, if so, then I don't know how to test and verify that now though.

Cheers, Linus
