Subject: [RFC] ipv6: gro: IPV6_GRO_CB(skb)->proto problem

It seems IPV6_GRO_CB(skb)->proto can be destroyed in skb_gro_receive()
if a new skb is allocated (to serve as an anchor for frag_list)

At line 3049 we copy NAPI_GRO_CB() only (not the IPV6 specific part)

*NAPI_GRO_CB(nskb) = *NAPI_GRO_CB(p);

So we leave IPV6_GRO_CB(nskb)->proto to 0 (fresh skb allocation) instead
of PROTO_TCP

So ipv6_gro_complete() wont be able to call ops->gro_complete()
[ tcp6_gro_complete() ]

I would fix this by moving proto in NAPI_GRO_CB() [ ie getting rid of
IPV6_GRO_CB ]

Am I missing something ?

(I'll submit a proper patch once/if prior GRO ones are accepted/merged
by David)

Thanks
