Subject: Re: [PATCH net] net: fix pos incrementment in ipv6_route_seq_next

Dear Yonghong Song,
thank you for reporting the problem.
As far as I understand the problem here is that pos is incremented in .start function.

I do not,like an idea to avoid increment in ipv6_route_seq_next()
however ipv6_route_seq_start can provide fake argument instead.

        } else {
                return NULL;
        }

In this case patch subject should be changed accordingly.

Thank you,
