Thanks for testing, Yoshi.  That is good news and means there is a fix
for this already, without requiring a revert.  We just need to narrow
down which version the fix landed in, and then identify that commit.

Lets first test some of the 3.14 release candidates, newer than -rc1.
Can you test the following:


If v3.14-rc4 does NOT exhibit the bug then test v3.14-rc3:

If v3.14-rc4 DOES exhibit the bug then test v3.14-rc6:

Bug description:
  Setting net.ipv4.neigh.default.gc_thresh1/2/3 on the 3.13.0-96-generic
  kernel and below worked fine using the following:

  $ sudo /sbin/sysctl -w net.ipv4.neigh.default.gc_thresh1=128

  As of 3.13.0-97-generic, though, it no longer works as expected:

  $ sudo /sbin/sysctl -w net.ipv4.neigh.default.gc_thresh1=128
  error: "Invalid argument" setting key "net.ipv4.neigh.default.gc_thresh1"

  There are two potentially related revisions in the -97 release -
  backport-trusty&id=563cf19389d8e999e69d6c94995966aeaf7c3a08 and

  The expected behavior is that changing neighbor table settings works
  using 'sysctl -w' with the same values as before the -97 kernel.
