Subject: Re: [PATCH v2] ip6_tunnel: allow to change mode for the ip6tnl0

From: "Alexey Andriyanov" <>
Date: Wed, 29 Oct 2014 10:54:52 +0300

> The fallback device is in ipv6 mode by default.
> The mode can not be changed in runtime, so there

> This allows to update the fallback tunnel device, but only
> the mode could be changed. Usual command should work for the
> fallback device: `ip -6 tun change ip6tnl0 mode any`
> The fallback device can not be hidden from the packet receiver
> as a regular tunnel, but there is no need for synchronization
> as long as we do single assignment.
