Subject: Re: [PATCH 1/1] net/ipv6: Correct PIM6 mrt_lock handling

From: Richard Laing <>
Date: Thu,  3 Sep 2015 13:52:31 +1200

> In the IPv6 multicast routing code the mrt_lock was not being released
> correctly in the MFC iterator, as a result adding or deleting a MIF would
> cause a hang because the mrt_lock could not be acquired.
> This fix is a copy of the code for the IPv4 case and ensures that the lock
> is released correctly.
