ipv6: release rt6->rt6i_idev properly during ifdown
When a dst is created by addrconf_dst_alloc() for a host route or an anycast route, dst->dev points to loopback dev while rt6->rt6i_idev points to a real device. When the real device goes down, the current cleanup code only checks for dst->dev and assumes rt6->rt6i_idev->dev is the same. This causes the refcount leak on the real device in the above situation. This patch makes sure to always release the refcount taken on rt6->rt6i_idev during dst_dev_put(). Fixes: 587fea741134 ("ipv6: mark DST_NOGC and remove the operation of dst_free()") Reported-by: John Stultz <john.stultz@linaro.org> Tested-by: John Stultz <john.stultz@linaro.org> Tested-by: Martin KaFai Lau <kafai@fb.com> Signed-off-by: Wei Wang <weiwan@google.com> Signed-off-by: Martin KaFai Lau <kafai@fb.com> Acked-by: David Ahern <dsahern@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
