Subject: IPv6 multicast with VRF

Hi,

I don't have experience with either IPv6 multicast or VRF, yet I need to
send some IPv6 multicast packets from a device enslaved to a VRF, and I
don't really know what's wrong with the routing table setup.

The system is configured in the following way:

 ip link set dev eth0 up

 # The kernel kindly creates a ff00::/8 route for IPv6 multicast traffic
 # in the local table, and I think this is what makes multicast route
 # lookups find the egress device.
 ip -6 route show table local
local ::1 dev lo proto kernel metric 0 pref medium
local fe80::204:9fff:fe05:f4ab dev eth0 proto kernel metric 0 pref medium
multicast ff00::/8 dev eth0 proto kernel metric 256 pref medium

 ip -6 route get ff02::1
multicast ff02::1 dev eth0 table local proto kernel src fe80::204:9fff:fe05:f4ab metric 256 pref medium

 ip link add dev vrf0 type vrf table 3 && ip link set dev vrf0 up

 ip -4 route add table 3 unreachable default metric 4278198272

 ip -6 route add table 3 unreachable default metric 4278198272

 ip link set dev eth0 master vrf0

The problem seems to be that, although the "ff00::/8 dev eth0" route
migrates from table 255 to table 3, route lookups after this point fail
to find it and return -ENETUNREACH (ip6_null_entry).

 ip -6 route show table local
local ::1 dev lo proto kernel metric 0 pref medium

 ip -6 route show table main
::1 dev lo proto kernel metric 256 pref medium

 ip -6 route show table 3
local fe80::204:9fff:fe05:f4ab dev eth0 proto kernel metric 0 pref medium
fe80::/64 dev eth0 proto kernel metric 256 pref medium
multicast ff00::/8 dev eth0 proto kernel metric 256 pref medium
unreachable default dev lo metric 4278198272 pref medium

 ip -6 route get ff02::1
RTNETLINK answers: Network is unreachable

 ip -6 route get vrf vrf0 ff02::1
RTNETLINK answers: Network is unreachable

I'm not exactly sure what is missing?
