Subject: Re: [PATCH net] ipv4: ip_do_fragment: Preserve skb_iif during

> Previously, during fragmentation after forwarding, skb->skb_iif isn't

> 'from' skb.
> As a result, ip_do_fragment's creates fragments with zero skb_iif,

>  - a bogus iif is observed if forwarding path involves
>    fragmentation/refragmentatiom
> Fix, by preserving skb_iif during 'ip_copy_metadata'.
