Re: [NET]: Messed multicast lists after dev_mc_sync/unsync (fwd)



This is probably the reason why IPv6 is broken on my WiFi on latest kernels until I put the interface to the promiscuous mode.

Putting this in the 2.6.24.2 kernel patchset might not be a bad idea..

    [NET]: Messed multicast lists after dev_mc_sync/unsync

    Commit a0a400d79e3dd7843e7e81baa3ef2957bdc292d0 from you
    introduced a new field "da_synced" to struct dev_addr_list that is
    not properly initialized to 0. So when any of the current users (8021q,
    macvlan, mac80211) calls dev_mc_sync/unsync they mess the address
    list for both devices.

    The attached patch fixed it for me and avoid future problems.

I've added the headline description of the referenced commit
to this commit message, and will queue this up to -stable.

Thanks!
