[Bridge] [PATCHv3] bridge: disable snooping if there is no querier

Linus Lüssing linus.luessing at web.de

If there is no querier on a link then we won't get periodic reports and
therefore won't be able to learn about multicast listeners behind ports,
potentially leading to lost multicast packets, especially for multicast
listeners that joined before the creation of the bridge.

These lost multicast packets can appear since c5c23260594
("bridge: Add multicast_querier toggle and disable queries by default")
in particular.

With this patch we are flooding multicast packets if our querier is
disabled and if we didn't detect any other querier.

A grace period of the Maximum Response Delay of the querier is added to
give multicast responses enough time to arrive and to be learned from
before disabling the flooding behaviour again.

v3: changed type of multicast_querier_delay_time from
    atomic64_t to unsigned long
v2: added missing, empty br_multicast_querier_exists() to avoid
    build failures if CONFIG_BRIDGE_IGMP_SNOOPING is not set
