Subject: Re: [PATCH] ipv6: icmp6_send: fix Oops when pinging a not set up
 IPv6 peer on a sit tunnel

> The patch 446fab59333dea91e54688f033dd8d788d0486fb ("ipv6: enable anycast addresses
> as source addresses in ICMPv6 error messages") causes an Oops when pinging a not
> set up IPv6 peer on a sit tunnel.
> The problem is that ipv6_anycast_destination() uses unconditionally skb_dst(skb),
> which is NULL in this case.
> The solution is to use instead the ipv6_chk_acast_addr_src() function.
> Here are the steps to reproduce it:
> modprobe sit
> ip link add sit1 type sit remote local
> ip l s sit1 up
> ip -6 a a dev sit1 2001:1234::123 remote 2001:1234::121
> ping6 2001:1234::121
