XFRM,IPv6: initialize ip6_dst_blackhole_ops.kmem_cachep
Arnaud Ebalard [Wed, 1 Oct 2008 09:37:56 +0000 (02:37 -0700)]
ip6_dst_blackhole_ops.kmem_cachep is not expected to be NULL (i.e. to
be initialized) when dst_alloc() is called from ip6_dst_blackhole().
Otherwise, it results in the following (xfrm_larval_drop is now set to
1 by default):
