Summary0012653: VLAN filter unconditionnaly disabled in ixgbe with kernel-3.10.0-514.2.2
DescriptionThe kernel distributed with 7.3.1611 doesn't include patch f60439bc21e3337429838e477903214f5bd8277f (
The VLAN filter on ixgbe cards is unconditionnaly disabled, making SR-IOV virtual functions unusable as they will all receive all traffic instead of being filtered on a vlan tag as expected.

(The bug doesn't happen on previous kernels, where the vlan filter was unconditionnaly enabled, or on a mainline kernel, which has this fix)
Steps To Reproduce1. Enable SR-IOV on an ixgbe NIC: `echo 2 > /sys/class/net/<device>/device/sriov_numvfs`
2. Assign a vlan to one of its vfs: `ip link set <device> vf 1 vlan 4`
3. dump traffic on the vf: packets from all vlans are displayed. Especially visible with IPv6 RAs in SLAAC mode, where the interface will configure addresses from all available vlans that advertise it.
TagsNo tags attached.

We will try to get the patch into the next update to the centosplus kernel.

The fix for the distro kernel must come from RH. Could you file a bug report upstream at ?

The patch is in the plus kernel as of 3.10.0-514.6.1.el7.

Will close this as 'resolved' for now. If/when the upstream (RHEL) kernel gets fixed, we will add a note here.

The patch is now in kernel-3.10.0-514.21.1.el7, so has been removed from the plus kernel.
