ipv6/addrconf: allow adding multicast addr if IFA_F_MCAUTOJOIN is set
In commit 93a714d6b53d ("multicast: Extend ip address command to enable multicast group join/leave on") we added a new flag IFA_F_MCAUTOJOIN to make user able to add multicast address on ethernet interface. This works for IPv4, but not for IPv6. See the inet6_addr_add code. static int inet6_addr_add() { ... if (cfg->ifa_flags & IFA_F_MCAUTOJOIN) { ipv6_mc_config(net->ipv6.mc_autojoin_sk, true...) } ifp = ipv6_add_addr(idev, cfg, true, extack); <- always fail with maddr if (!IS_ERR(ifp)) { ... } else if (cfg->ifa_flags & IFA_F_MCAUTOJOIN) { ipv6_mc_config(net->ipv6.mc_autojoin_sk, false...) } } But in ipv6_add_addr() it will check the address type and reject multicast address directly. So this feature is never worked for IPv6. We should not remove the multicast address check totally in ipv6_add_addr(), but could accept multicast address only when IFA_F_MCAUTOJOIN flag supplied. v2: update commit description Fixes: 93a714d6b53d ("multicast: Extend ip address command to enable multicast group join/leave on") Reported-by: Jianlin Shi <jishi@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Hangbin Liu <liuhangbin@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
