[libvirt] [PATCH v2 2/2] bridge driver: don't masquerade local subnet broadcast/multicast packets



Packets sent by guests on virbrN, *or* by dnsmasq on the same, to
- 255.255.255.255/32 (netmask-independent local network broadcast
  address), or to
- 224.0.0.0/24 (local subnetwork multicast range)
are never forwarded, hence it is not necessary to masquerade them.

In fact we must not masquerade them: translating their source addresses or
source ports (where applicable) may confuse receivers on virbrN.

One example is the DHCP client in OVMF (= UEFI firmware for virtual
machines):

  http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.bios.tianocore.devel/1506/focus=2640

It expects DHCP replies to arrive from remote source port 67. Even though
dnsmasq conforms to that, the destination address (255.255.255.255) and
the source address (eg. 192.168.122.1) in the reply allow the UDP
masquerading rule to match, which rewrites the source port to or above
1024. This prevents the DHCP client in OVMF from accepting the packet.
