Re: [patch v2, kernel version 3.2.1] net/ipv4/ip_gre: Ethernet multipoint GRE over IP

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

At the risk of repeating myself, Linux GRE support already has
provisions for multipoint tunnels. And unlike your code, those reuse the
existing neighbor table infrastructure, including all of its user
interface and introspection capabilities.

It's actually slightly visible in your patch:
