parentnet/ipv6: Refactor gateway validation on route add (diff)
net/ipv6: Change address check to always take a device argument
ipv6_chk_addr_and_flags determines if an address is a local address and optionally if it is an address on a specific device. For example, it is called by ip6_route_info_create to determine if a given gateway address is a local address. The address check currently does not consider L3 domains and as a result does not allow a route to be added in one VRF if the nexthop points to an address in a second VRF. e.g., $ ip route add 2001:db8:1::/64 vrf r2 via 2001:db8:102::23 Error: Invalid gateway address. where 2001:db8:102::23 is an address on an interface in vrf r1. ipv6_chk_addr_and_flags needs to allow callers to always pass in a device with a separate argument to not limit the address to the specific device. The device is used used to determine the L3 domain of interest. To that end add an argument to skip the device check and update callers to always pass a device where possible and use the new argument to mean any address in the domain. Update a handful of users of ipv6_chk_addr with a NULL dev argument. This patch handles the change to these callers without adding the domain check. ip6_validate_gw needs to handle 2 cases - one where the device is given as part of the nexthop spec and the other where the device is resolved. There is at least 1 VRF case where deferring the check to only after the route lookup has resolved the device fails with an unintuitive error "RTNETLINK answers: No route to host" as opposed to the preferred "Error: Gateway can not be a local address." The 'no route to host' error is because of the fallback to a full lookup. The check is done twice to avoid this error.
