Thanks for explaining.

I had a look at what you suggested.


So, for anycast, on top of the previous patch, we'd have:

 	if (idev == NULL)
 		return -ENODEV;
 	return __ipv6_dev_ac_dec(idev, addr);

And for multicast:
 - locking order in the patch below: rtnl -> rcu -> ipv6_sk_mc_lock
 - ipv6_sock_mc_join: maybe move all the _unlock()'s together at the end of the function
 - do we need to modify rcu_dereference_protected in ipv6_sock_mc_drop/ipv6_sock_mc_close
 - I had a look at the other codepaths that call ipv6_dev_mc_inc/dec
   - ipv6_mc_destroy_dev, dev_forward_change, ipv6_add_dev,
     addrconf_join_solict -- all take rtnl or already have an
     ASSERT_RTNL()
   - pndisc_destructor, called from pneigh_ifdown/pneigh_delete
   - pndisc_constructor, called from pneigh_lookup -- pneigh_lookup
     has ASSERT_RTNL(), but pneigh_lookup is called from ip6_forward and
     ndisc_recv_na
   - (hope I didn't miss any callers)

As far as I could see, apart maybe from pndisc_constructor, it seems
okay, but I'd like to hear your comments.
