Subject: Re: [PATCH net] netns: don't clear nsid too early on removal

From: Nicolas Dichtel <>
Date: Thu, 26 Mar 2015 17:56:38 +0100

> With the current code, ids are removed too early.
> Suppose you have an ipip interface that stands in the netns foo and its link
> part in the netns bar (so the netns bar has an nsid into the netns foo).
> Now, you remove the netns bar:
>  - the bar nsid into the netns foo is removed
>  - the netns exit method of ipip is called, thus our ipip iface is removed:
>    => a netlink message is sent in the netns foo to advertise this deletion
>    => this netlink message requests an nsid for bar, thus a new nsid is
>       allocated for bar and never removed.
> We must remove nsids when we are sure that nobody will refer to netns currently
> cleaned.
> Fixes: 0c7aecd4bde4 ("netns: add rtnl cmd to add and get peer netns ids")
