Looking at the history:

Originally dst.dev was used as network namespace for icmp errors:

dde1bc0e6f861 (Denis V. Lunev 2008-01-22 23:50:57 -0800 450) net = rt->u.dst.dev->nd_net;

commit dde1bc0e6f86183bc095d0774cd109f4edf66ea2
Author: Denis V. Lunev <den@openvz.org>
Date: Tue Jan 22 23:50:57 2008 -0800

[NETNS]: Add namespace for ICMP replying code.

All needed API is done, the namespace is available when required from
the device on the DST entry from the incoming packet. So, just replace
init_net with proper namespace.
Here I wonder what motivated use of the DST entry here ?

Note that this choice of DST network namespace applies to both __icmp_send and
icmp_unreach.

It has been followed by a few data structure layout changes:

c346dca10840a (YOSHIFUJI Hideaki 2008-03-25 21:47:49 +0900 430) net = dev_net(rt->u.dst.dev);
d8d1f30b95a63 (Changli Gao 2010-06-10 23:31:35 -0700 585) net = dev_net(rt->dst.dev);

It was then changed to fix a NULL pointer deref:

e2c693934194f (Hangbin Liu 2019-08-22 22:19:48 +0800 586)
e2c693934194f (Hangbin Liu 2019-08-22 22:19:48 +0800 587) if (rt->dst.dev)
e2c693934194f (Hangbin Liu 2019-08-22 22:19:48 +0800 588) net = dev_net(rt->dst.dev);
e2c693934194f (Hangbin Liu 2019-08-22 22:19:48 +0800 589) else if (skb_in->dev)
e2c693934194f (Hangbin Liu 2019-08-22 22:19:48 +0800 590) net = dev_net(skb_in->dev);
e2c693934194f (Hangbin Liu 2019-08-22 22:19:48 +0800 591) else
e2c693934194f (Hangbin Liu 2019-08-22 22:19:48 +0800 592) goto out;

The code I proposed basically does use the skb_in->dev (if non-null)
for looking up which VRF table to use, else use skb_dst(skb_in) (if non-null)
for looking up which VRF table to use, else route_lookup_dev is NULL, which
means use the master table.

Whether this should instead try to lookup the source address with the skb_in->dev
table, and of that fails go to the next, is a good question. I think the context
I am missing in order to understand which approach is appropriate is which
scenario can cause skb_in->dev to be NULL, and which can cause skb_dst(skb_in)
to be NULL, and what is the expected behavior for icmp error route lookup in those
cases ?

Thanks,

Mathieu
