Subject: [PATCH 3/3] inet: fix improper empty comparison

From: Josef Bacik <>

When doing my reuseport rework I screwed up and changed a

if (hlist_empty(&tb->owners))


if (!hlist_empty(&tb->owners))

This is obviously bad as all of the reuseport/reuse logic was reversed,
which caused weird problems like allowing an ipv4 bind conflict if we
opened an ipv4 only socket on a port followed by an ipv6 only socket on
the same port.

Fixes: b9470c27607b ("inet: kill smallest_size and smallest_port")
