Description Thadeu Lima de Souza Cascardo 2016-07-28 15:18:57 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1361236 +++

Add support to the rtnetlink interface to the out-of-tree geneve module on openvswitch datapath.

Comment 2 Eric Garver 2016-08-11 17:12:28 UTC
Closing this BZ. No changes required.

The only real difference I found has since been recently backported upstream.

  225577760435 ("datapath: backport: geneve: fix max_mtu setting")

I've tested the geneve port creation with the rtnetlink patch series (1323148). The geneve ports are created as expeceted. openvswitch test "check-kmod" passes on an upstream 4.6 kernel.

Comment 3 Eric Garver 2016-08-12 18:55:49 UTC
Re-open. Still need a couple fixes for rtnetlink.

Comment 5 Eric Garver 2017-04-10 22:10:50 UTC
Upstream is close to accepting the rtnetlink patch series and adding rtnetlink support to the OVS datapath modules is no longer necessary. OVS datapath modules will continue to use the compat interface.
