Subject: Re: [net-next PATCH v2] net: ipv6: use common fib_default_rule_pref

From: Phil Sutter <>
Date: Sun,  6 Sep 2015 12:20:58 +0200

> This switches IPv6 policy routing to use the shared
> fib_default_rule_pref() function of IPv4 and DECnet. It is also used in
> multicast routing for IPv4 as well as IPv6.
> The motivation for this patch is a complaint about iproute2 behaving
> inconsistent between IPv4 and IPv6 when adding policy rules: Formerly,
> IPv6 rules were assigned a fixed priority of 0x3FFF whereas for IPv4 the
> assigned priority value was decreased with each rule added.
> Since then all users of the default_pref field have been converted to
> assign the generic function fib_default_rule_pref(), fib_nl_newrule()
> may just use it directly instead. Therefore get rid of the function
> pointer altogether and make fib_default_rule_pref() static, as it's not
> used outside fib_rules.c anymore.
