Summary0006315: ip6tables "Can't specify HL option twice"
DescriptionWhen trying to create certain rules, an invalid error is returned:

~ # ip6tables -A INPUT -p icmpv6 --icmpv6-type redirect -m hl ! --hl-eq 255 -j DROP -m comment --comment "this is a comment"
ip6tables v1.4.7: Can't specify HL option twice
Try `ip6tables -h' or 'ip6tables --help' for more information.

The error is invalid because the HL option is not specified twice. Removing the comment from the rule works as expected.
Steps To Reproduce~ # ip6tables -A INPUT -p icmpv6 --icmpv6-type redirect -m hl ! --hl-eq 255 -j DROP -m comment --comment "husk line 13"
ip6tables v1.4.7: Can't specify HL option twice
Try `ip6tables -h' or 'ip6tables --help' for more information.

To be resolved in CentOS, it needs to be resolved in our upstream product (RHEL) first. So reporting it to the netfilter folks is great, but that doesn't fix it in RHEL :)

A quick search at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/ didn't show any reports about that (but I only did a really quick search), so you might want to report it there.

Thanks.
