[PATCH 3.18 140/144] net: sched: gred: pass the right attribute to gred_change_table_def()




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

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

From: Jakub Kicinski <jakub.kicinski@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 38b4f18d56372e1e21771ab7b0357b853330186c ]

gred_change_table_def() takes a pointer to TCA_GRED_DPS attribute,
and expects it will be able to interpret its contents as
struct tc_gred_sopt.  Pass the correct gred attribute, instead of
TCA_OPTIONS.

This bug meant the table definition could never be changed after
Qdisc was initialized (unless whatever TCA_OPTIONS contained both
passed netlink validation and was a valid struct tc_gred_sopt...).

Old behaviour:
$ ip link add type dummy
$ tc qdisc replace dev dummy0 parent root handle 7: \
     gred setup vqs 4 default 0
$ tc qdisc replace dev dummy0 parent root handle 7: \
     gred setup vqs 4 default 0
RTNETLINK answers: Invalid argument

Now:
$ ip link add type dummy
$ tc qdisc replace dev dummy0 parent root handle 7: \
     gred setup vqs 4 default 0
$ tc qdisc replace dev dummy0 parent root handle 7: \
     gred setup vqs 4 default 0
$ tc qdisc replace dev dummy0 parent root handle 7: \
     gred setup vqs 4 default 0
