[B.A.T.M.A.N.] [PATCHv2 net-next 2/4] bridge: adhere to querier election mechanism specified by RFCs

Linus Lüssing linus.luessing at web.de
Sun May 25 07:03:23 CEST 2014


MLDv1 (RFC2710 section 6), MLDv2 (RFC3810 section 7.6.2), IGMPv2
(RFC2236 section 3) and IGMPv3 (RFC3376 section 6.6.2) specify that the
querier with lowest source address shall become the selected
querier.

So far the bridge stopped its querier as soon as it heard another
querier regardless of its source address. This results in the "wrong"
querier potentially becoming the active querier or a potential,
unnecessary querying delay.

With this patch the bridge memorizes the source address of the currently
selected querier and ignores queries from queriers with a higher source
address than the currently selected one. This slight optimization is
supposed to make it more RFC compliant (but is rather uncritical and
therefore probably not necessary to be queued for stable kernels).
