[PATCH 4.18 025/197] net/ipv6: Only update MTU metric if it set




4.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: David Ahern <dsahern@xxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 15a81b418e22a9aa4a0504471fdcb0f4ebf69b96 ]

Jan reported a regression after an update to 4.18.5. In this case ipv6
default route is setup by systemd-networkd based on data from an RA. The
RA contains an MTU of 1492 which is used when the route is first inserted
but then systemd-networkd pushes down updates to the default route
without the mtu set.

Prior to the change to fib6_info, metrics such as MTU were held in the
dst_entry and rt6i_pmtu in rt6_info contained an update to the mtu if
any. ip6_mtu would look at rt6i_pmtu first and use it if set. If not,
the value from the metrics is used if it is set and finally falling
back to the idev value.

After the fib6_info change metrics are contained in the fib6_info struct
and there is no equivalent to rt6i_pmtu. To maintain consistency with
the old behavior the new code should only reset the MTU in the metrics
if the route update has it set.
