Subject: Re: [PATCH net] rxrpc: Fix DATA Tx to disable nofrag for UDP on
 AF_INET6 socket

From: David Howells <>

> Fix the DATA packet transmission to disable nofrag for UDPv4 on an AF_INET6
> socket as well as UDPv6 when trying to transmit fragmentably.
> Without this, packets filled to the normal size used by the kernel AFS
> client of 1412 bytes be rejected by udp_sendmsg() with EMSGSIZE
> immediately.  The ->sk_error_report() notification hook is called, but
> rxrpc doesn't generate a trace for it.

> on the fly at transmission time.
> Also, there's no point turning on IPV6_MTU_DISCOVER, since IPv6 has to
