Subject: Re: [PATCH net-next] tun: Consistently configure generic netdev
 params via rtnetlink

From: Serhey Popovych <>

> Configuring generic network device parameters on tun will fail in
> presence of IFLA_INFO_KIND attribute in IFLA_LINKINFO nested attribute
> since tun_validate() always return failure.
> This can be visualized with following ip-link(8) command sequences:
>   # ip link set dev tun0 group 100
>   # ip link set dev tun0 group 100 type tun
>   RTNETLINK answers: Invalid argument
> with contrast to dummy and veth drivers:
>   # ip link set dev dummy0 group 100
>   # ip link set dev dummy0 type dummy
>   # ip link set dev veth0 group 100
>   # ip link set dev veth0 group 100 type veth
> Fix by returning zero in tun_validate() when @data is NULL that is
> always in case since rtnl_link_ops->maxtype is zero in tun driver.
