Subject[PATCH 3.13 010/162] vxlan: fix incorrect initializer in union vxlan_addr
Date
3.13.11.11 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Gerhard Stenzel <gstenzel@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

[ Upstream commit a45e92a599e77ee6a850eabdd0141633fde03915 ]

The first initializer in the following

union vxlan_addr ipa = {
.sin.sin_addr.s_addr = tip,
.sa.sa_family = AF_INET,
};

is optimised away by the compiler, due to the second initializer,
therefore initialising .sin.sin_addr.s_addr always to 0.
This results in netlink messages indicating a L3 miss never contain the
missed IP address. This was observed with GCC 4.8 and 4.9. I do not know about previous versions.
The problem affects user space programs relying on an IP address being
sent as part of a netlink message indicating a L3 miss.

Changing
.sa.sa_family = AF_INET,
to
.sin.sin_family = AF_INET,
fixes the problem.
