Subject[PATCH net] net: l2tp: reduce log level when passing up invalid packets
Date
Before commit 5ee759cda51b ("l2tp: use standard API for warning log
messages"), it was possible for userspace applications to use their own
control protocols on the backing sockets of an L2TP kernel device, and as
long as a packet didn't look like a proper L2TP data packet, it would be
passed up to userspace just fine.

After the mentioned change, this approach would lead to significant log
spam, as the previously hidden warnings are now shown by default. Not
even setting the T flag on the custom control packets is sufficient to
surpress these warnings, as packet length and L2TP version are checked
before the T flag.

Reduce all warnings debug level when packets are passed to userspace.

Fixes: 5ee759cda51b ("l2tp: use standard API for warning log messages")

I'm unsure what to do about the pr_warn_ratelimited() in
l2tp_recv_common(). It feels wrong to me that an incoming network packet
can trigger a kernel message above debug level at all, so maybe they
should be downgraded as well? I believe the only reason these were ever
warnings is that they were not shown by default.
