Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 417/671] bpf: fix the check that forwarding is enabled in bpf_ipv6_fib_lookup

From: Anton Protopopov <>

[ Upstream commit 56f0f84e69c7a7f229dfa524b13b0ceb6ce9b09e ]

The bpf_ipv6_fib_lookup function should return BPF_FIB_LKUP_RET_FWD_DISABLED
when forwarding is disabled for the input device.  However instead of checking
if forwarding is enabled on the input device, it checked the global
net->ipv6.devconf_all->forwarding flag.  Change it to behave as expected.

Fixes: 87f5fc7e48dd ("bpf: Provide helper to do forwarding lookups in kernel FIB table")
