Yes, this is triggered by XFRM_MSG_UPDPOLICY

1436 static bool xfrm_policy_mark_match(struct xfrm_policy *policy,
1437                                    struct xfrm_policy *pol)
1438 {
1439         u32 mark = policy->mark.v & policy->mark.m;
1440
1441         if (policy->mark.v == pol->mark.v && policy->mark.m == pol->mark.m)
1442                 return true;
1443
1444         if ((mark & pol->mark.m) == pol->mark.v &&    //policy is C, pol is B, so mark is 0, pol->mark.m is 0, pol->mark.v is 0
1445             policy->priority == pol->priority)	   //priority is same zero, so return true, B is replaced with C
1446                 return true;
1447
1448         return false;
1449 }

Should xfrm_policy_mark_match be fixed?
