Subject[PATCH 4.19 104/114] net/dst: do not confirm neighbor for vxlan and geneve pmtu update
From: Hangbin Liu <>

[ Upstream commit f081042d128a0c7acbd67611def62e1b52e2d294 ]

When do IPv6 tunnel PMTU update and calls __ip6_rt_update_pmtu() in the end,
we should not call dst_confirm_neigh() as there is no two-way communication.

So disable the neigh confirm for vxlan and geneve pmtu update.

v5: No change.
v4: No change.
v3: Do not remove dst_confirm_neigh, but add a new bool parameter in
dst_ops.update_pmtu to control whether we should do neighbor confirm.
Also split the big patch to small ones for each area.
v2: Remove dst_confirm_neigh in __ip6_rt_update_pmtu.

Fixes: a93bf0ff4490 ("vxlan: update skb dst pmtu on tx path")
Fixes: 52a589d51f10 ("geneve: update skb dst pmtu on tx path")
