Discussion:
[RFC PATCH v3 net-next] net: ipv6: Add a sysctl to make optimistic addresses useful candidates
(too old to reply)

Add a sysctl that causes an interface's optimistic addresses
to be considered equivalent to other non-deprecated addresses
for source address selection purposes. Preferred addresses
will still take precedence over optimistic addresses, subject
to other ranking in the source address selection algorithm.

This is useful where different interfaces are connected to
different networks from different ISPs (e.g., a cell network
and a home wifi network).

The current behaviour complies with RFC 3484/6724, and it
makes sense if the host has only one interface, or has
multiple interfaces on the same network (same or cooperating
administrative domain(s), but not in the multiple distinct
networks case.

For example, if a mobile device has an IPv6 address on an LTE
network and then connects to IPv6-enabled wifi, while the wifi
IPv6 address is undergoing DAD, IPv6 connections will try use
the wifi default route with the LTE IPv6 address, and will get
stuck until they time out.

Also, because optimistic nodes can receive frames, issue
an RTM_NEWADDR as soon as DAD starts. If DAD fails, a separate
RTM_DELADDR is always sent.

Also: add an entry in ip-sysctl.txt for optimistic_dad.

Add a sysctl that causes an interface's optimistic addresses
to be considered equivalent to other non-deprecated addresses
for source address selection purposes. Preferred addresses
will still take precedence over optimistic addresses, subject
to other ranking in the source address selection algorithm.
This is useful where different interfaces are connected to
different networks from different ISPs (e.g., a cell network
and a home wifi network).
The current behaviour complies with RFC 3484/6724, and it
makes sense if the host has only one interface, or has
multiple interfaces on the same network (same or cooperating
administrative domain(s), but not in the multiple distinct
networks case.
For example, if a mobile device has an IPv6 address on an LTE
network and then connects to IPv6-enabled wifi, while the wifi
IPv6 address is undergoing DAD, IPv6 connections will try use
the wifi default route with the LTE IPv6 address, and will get
stuck until they time out.
Also, because optimistic nodes can receive frames, issue
an RTM_NEWADDR as soon as DAD starts. If DAD fails, a separate
RTM_DELADDR is always sent.
Also: add an entry in ip-sysctl.txt for optimistic_dad.
I agree with the principle of the patch. This option is useful.


Thank you,
