Up until now, 'action mirred' supported only egress actions (either
TCA_EGRESS_REDIR or TCA_EGRESS_MIRROR).
This patch implements the corresponding ingress actions
TCA_INGRESS_REDIR and TCA_INGRESS_MIRROR.
This allows attaching filters whose target is to hand matching skbs into
the rx processing of a specified device.
Thank you for doing this. There was something that made me remove
initial support for this feature - I am blanking out right now but
will find my notes and give more details. It may be around preventing
loops maybe. If that was the thought then:
I am just wondering is there a use case for a packet that is redirected
from egress ethx to ingress of ethy that then requires ingress of ethy
classify? Otherwise you could just set the "dont classify" flag.
