ipv4: send arp replies to the correct tunnel
When using ip lwtunnels, the additional data for xmit (basically, the actual tunnel to use) are carried in ip_tunnel_info either in dst->lwtstate or in metadata dst. When replying to ARP requests, we need to send the reply to the same tunnel the request came from. This means we need to construct proper metadata dst for ARP replies. We could perform another route lookup to get a dst entry with the correct lwtstate. However, this won't always ensure that the outgoing tunnel is the same as the incoming one, and it won't work anyway for IPv4 duplicate address detection. The only thing to do is to "reverse" the ip_tunnel_info. Signed-off-by: Jiri Benc <jbenc@redhat.com> Acked-by: Thomas Graf <tgraf@suug.ch> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
