Subject: Re: [PATCH net-next 0/7] ipv6: Move exceptions to fib6_nh and make
 it optional in a fib6_info

> From: David Ahern <>
> Patches 1 and 4 move pcpu and exception caches from fib6_info to fib6_nh.
> With respect to the current FIB entries this is only a movement from one
> struct to another contained within the first.
> Patch 2 refactors the core logic of fib6_drop_pcpu_from into a helper
> that is invoked per fib6_nh.
> Patch 3 refactors exception handling in a similar way - creating a bunch
> of helpers that can be invoked per fib6_nh with the goal of making patch
> 4 easier to review as well as creating the code needed for nexthop
> objects.
> Patch 5 makes a fib6_nh at the end of a fib6_info an array similar to
> IPv4 and its fib_info. For the current fib entry model, all fib6_info
> will have a fib6_nh allocated for it.
> Patch 6 refactors ip6_route_del moving the code for deleting an
> exception entry into a new function.
> Patch 7 adds tests for redirect route exceptions. The new test was
> written against 5.1 (before any of the nexthop refactoring). It and the
> selftest exercise the exception code paths - from creating
> exceptions to cleaning them up on device delete. All tests pass without
> any rcu locking or memleak warnings.

Series applied, thanks David.
