Subject: [PATCH net-next] Remove the redundant skb->dev initialization in ip6_fragment

From: Chenbo Feng <>

After moves the skb->dev and skb->protocol initialization into
ip6_output, setting the skb->dev inside ip6_fragment is unnecessary.

Fixes: 97a7a37a7b7b("ipv6: Initial skb->dev and skb->protocol in ip6_output")
