net: vrf: Fix ping failed when vrf mtu is set to 0
When the mtu of a vrf device is set to 0, it would cause ping failed. So I think we should limit vrf mtu in a reasonable range to solve this problem. I set dev->min_mtu to IPV6_MIN_MTU, so it will works for both ipv4 and ipv6. And if dev->max_mtu still be 0 can be confusing, so I set dev->max_mtu to ETH_MAX_MTU. Here is the reproduce step: 1.Config vrf interface and set mtu to 0: 3: enp4s0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc fq_codel master vrf1 state UP mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000 link/ether 52:54:00:9e:dd:c1 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff 2.Ping peer: 3: enp4s0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc fq_codel master vrf1 state UP group default qlen 1000 link/ether 52:54:00:9e:dd:c1 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff inet 10.0.0.1/16 scope global enp4s0 valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever connect: Network is unreachable 3.Set mtu to default value, ping works: PING 10.0.0.2 (10.0.0.2) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from 10.0.0.2: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=1.88 ms Fixes: ad49bc6361ca2 ("net: vrf: remove MTU limits for vrf device") Signed-off-by: Miaohe Lin <linmiaohe@huawei.com> Reviewed-by: David Ahern <dsahern@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
