Subject: Re: [PATCH] net/mlx5e: add IPV6 dependency

From: Arnd Bergmann <>
Date: Tue, 28 Feb 2017 22:12:04 +0100

> The ethernet support now calls directly into the ipv6 core code, which
> fails if IPV6 is a loadable module but mlx5 is built-in:
> drivers/net/ethernet/mellanox/mlx5/core/en_tc.o: In function `mlx5e_create_encap_header_ipv6':
> en_tc.c:(.text.mlx5e_create_encap_header_ipv6+0x110): undefined reference to `ip6_route_output_flags'
> This adds a dependency to ensure that MLX5_CORE_EN can only be built
> if we are able link the kernel successfully. The downside is that the
> ethernet option can be hidden. Alternatively we could make MLX5_CORE
> depend on "IPV6 || !IPV6", which would force MLX5_CORE to be a module
> when IPV6 is, including in configurations where we don't use the ethernet
> support at all.
