    [NETNS][IPV6] ip6_fib - add net to gc timer parameter · 5b7c931d
    Daniel Lezcano authored
    The fib tables are now relative to the network namespace. When the
    garbage collector timer expires, we must have a network namespace
    parameter in order to retrieve the tables. For now this is the
    init_net, but we should be able to have a timer per namespace and use
    the timer callback parameter to pass the network namespace from the
    expired timer.
    The timer callback, fib6_run_gc, is actually used to be called
    synchronously by some functions and asynchronously when the timer
    When the timer expires, the delay specified for fib6_run_gc parameter
    is always zero. So, I changed fib6_run_gc to not be a timer callback
    but a function called by the timer callback and I added a timer
    callback where its work is just to retrieve from the data arg of the
    timer the network namespace and call fib6_run_gc with zero expiring
    time and the network namespace parameters. That makes the code cleaner
    for the fib6_run_gc callers.
