Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 431/671] ip6_fib: Don't discard nodes with valid routing information in fib6_locate_1()

From: Stefano Brivio <sbrivio@...hat.com>

[ Upstream commit 40cb35d5dc04e7f89cbc7b1fc9b4b48d9f1e5343 ]

When we perform an inexact match on FIB nodes via fib6_locate_1(), longer
prefixes will be preferred to shorter ones. However, it might happen that
a node, with higher fn_bit value than some other, has no valid routing
information.

In this case, we'll pick that node, but it will be discarded by the check
on RTN_RTINFO in fib6_locate(), and we might miss nodes with valid routing
information but with lower fn_bit value.

This is apparent when a routing exception is created for a default route:
 # ip -6 route list
 fc00:1::/64 dev veth_A-R1 proto kernel metric 256 pref medium
 fc00:2::/64 dev veth_A-R2 proto kernel metric 256 pref medium
 fc00:4::1 via fc00:2::2 dev veth_A-R2 metric 1024 pref medium
 fe80::/64 dev veth_A-R1 proto kernel metric 256 pref medium
 fe80::/64 dev veth_A-R2 proto kernel metric 256 pref medium
 default via fc00:1::2 dev veth_A-R1 metric 1024 pref medium
 # ip -6 route list cache
 fc00:4::1 via fc00:2::2 dev veth_A-R2 metric 1024 expires 593sec mtu 1500 pref medium
 fc00:3::1 via fc00:1::2 dev veth_A-R1 metric 1024 expires 593sec mtu 1500 pref medium
 # ip -6 route flush cache    # node for default route is discarded
 Failed to send flush request: No such process
 # ip -6 route list cache
 fc00:3::1 via fc00:1::2 dev veth_A-R1 metric 1024 expires 586sec mtu 1500 pref medium

Check right away if the node has a RTN_RTINFO flag, before replacing the
'prev' pointer, that indicates the longest matching prefix found so far.
