Fix handling of TTL/Hop Limit and TOS/Traffic Class in the TCP SYN Cache

Authored by tuexen on Jul 31 2020, 10:03 PM.



This patch fixes the following issues:

  • Let the accepted TCP/IPv4 socket inherit the configured TTL and TOS value.
  • Let the accepted TCP/IPv6 socket inherit the configured Hop Limit.
  • Use the configured Hop Limit and Traffic Class when sending IPv6 packets.

May this check for IPv6 become a single test, which covers the tests below?
This would improve the reading of the whole construct.

A bit superfluous. isn't it?

This could be a single #ifdef INET (in the #ifdef INET6 scope)

I'm using the pattern also used at tcp_syncache.c:1849 for consistency within the same file.

Simplify code as suggested by Lutz.
