Subject[PATCH 4.19 038/120] net: ipv6: fix return value of ip6_skb_dst_mtu
From: Vadim Fedorenko <>

commit 40fc3054b45820c28ea3c65e2c86d041dc244a8a upstream.

Commit 628a5c561890 ("[INET]: Add IP(V6)_PMTUDISC_RPOBE") introduced
ip6_skb_dst_mtu with return value of signed int which is inconsistent
with actually returned values. Also 2 users of this function actually
assign its value to unsigned int variable and only __xfrm6_output
assigns result of this function to signed variable but actually uses
as unsigned in further comparisons and calls. Change this function
to return unsigned int value.

Fixes: 628a5c561890 ("[INET]: Add IP(V6)_PMTUDISC_RPOBE")
