Saeed,

Do you have LWTUNNEL enabled ? This commit introduced a bug causing IPv6
initialization to fail if LWTUNNEL is disabled. The patch has been
submitted to the list and is pending approval from DaveM.

If you see something like

NET: Registered protocol family 10
IPv6: Attempt to unregister permanent protocol 6
IPv6: Attempt to unregister permanent protocol 136
IPv6: Attempt to unregister permanent protocol 17
NET: Unregistered protocol family 10

in you dmesg logs then it would confirm my theory.

Short fix: enable CONFIG_LWTUNNEL or apply patch in attachment

David

Looks like the fix was applied [1],
Thanks for the quick response.

Patch

From 51775d7223b6d5bd16cb5d09df9ba494fac8ffda Mon Sep 17 00:00:00 2001
From: David Lebrun <david.lebrun@uclouvain.be>

Subject: [PATCH net-next 1/1] ipv6: sr: add option to control lwtunnel support

This patch adds a new option CONFIG_IPV6_SEG6_LWTUNNEL to enable/disable
support of encapsulation with the lightweight tunnels. When this option
is enabled, CONFIG_LWTUNNEL is automatically selected.

Fix commit 6c8702c60b88 ("ipv6: sr: add support for SRH encapsulation and injection with lwtunnels")

Without a proper option to control lwtunnel support for SR-IPv6, if
CONFIG_LWTUNNEL=n then the IPv6 initialization fails as a consequence
of seg6_iptunnel_init() failure with EOPNOTSUPP:

NET: Registered protocol family 10
IPv6: Attempt to unregister permanent protocol 6
IPv6: Attempt to unregister permanent protocol 136
IPv6: Attempt to unregister permanent protocol 17
NET: Unregistered protocol family 10

Tested (compiling, booting, and loading ipv6 module when relevant)
with possible combinations of CONFIG_IPV6={y,m,n},
CONFIG_IPV6_SEG6_LWTUNNEL={y,n} and CONFIG_LWTUNNEL={y,n}.
