Subject[ 16/25] net/l2tp: dont fall back on UDP [get|set]sockopt
2.6.32-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Sasha Levin <>

(commit 3cf521f7dc87c031617fd47e4b7aa2593c2f3daf upstream)

The l2tp [get|set]sockopt() code has fallen back to the UDP functions
for socket option levels != SOL_PPPOL2TP since day one, but that has
never actually worked, since the l2tp socket isn't an inet socket.

As David Miller points out:

"If we wanted this to work, it'd have to look up the tunnel and then
use tunnel->sk, but I wonder how useful that would be"

Since this can never have worked so nobody could possibly have depended
on that functionality, just remove the broken code and return -EINVAL.
