Subject: Re: [PATCH v3] ipv4: Make IP_MULTICAST_ALL and IP_MSFILTER work on
 raw sockets

From: Quentin Armitage <>
Date: Wed, 23 Jul 2014 09:58:01 +0100

> Currently, although IP_MULTICAST_ALL and IP_MSFILTER ioctl calls succeed on
> raw sockets, there is no code to implement the functionality on received
> packets; it is only implemented for UDP sockets. The raw(7) man page states:
> "In addition, all ip(7) IPPROTO_IP socket options valid for datagram sockets
> are supported", which implies these ioctls should work on raw sockets.
> To fix this, add a call to ip_mc_sf_allow on raw sockets.
> This should not break any existing code, since the current position of
> not calling ip_mc_sf_filter makes it behave as if neither the IP_MULTICAST_ALL
> nor the IP_MSFILTER ioctl had been called. Adding the call to ip_mc_sf_allow
> will therefore maintain the current behaviour so long as IP_MULTICAST_ALL and
> IP_MSFILTER ioctls are not called. Any code that currently is calling
> IP_MULTICAST_ALL or IP_MSFILTER ioctls on raw sockets presumably is wanting
> the filter to be applied, although no filtering will currently be occurring.
