Subject[PATCH 4.9 53/66] mlxsw: spectrum_router: Dont log an error on missing neighbor
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Yuval Mintz <>

[ Upstream commit 1ecdaea02ca6bfacf2ecda500dc1af51e9780c42 ]

Driver periodically samples all neighbors configured in device
in order to update the kernel regarding their state. When finding
an entry configured in HW that doesn't show in neigh_lookup()
driver logs an error message.
This introduces a race when removing multiple neighbors -
it's possible that a given entry would still be configured in HW
as its removal is still being processed but is already removed
from the kernel's neighbor tables.

Simply remove the error message and gracefully accept such events.

Fixes: c723c735fa6b ("mlxsw: spectrum_router: Periodically update the kernel's neigh table")
Fixes: 60f040ca11b9 ("mlxsw: spectrum_router: Periodically dump active IPv6 neighbours")
