> The function ip_rcv_finish() calls l3mdev_ip_rcv(). On any VRF except
> the global VRF, this replaces skb->dev with the VRF master interface.
> When calling ip_route_input_noref() from here, the checks for forwarding
> look at this master device instead of the initial ingress interface.
> This will allow packets to be routed which normally would be dropped.
> For example, an interface that is not assigned an IP address should
> drop packets, but because the checking is against the master device, the
> packet will be forwarded.
> The fix here is to still call l3mdev_ip_rcv(), but remember the initial
> net_device. This is passed to the other functions within ip_rcv_finish,
> so they still see the original interface.
