Lorenzo Colitti - May 10, 2014, 3:08 a.m.
Currently, routing lookups used for Path PMTU Discovery in
absence of a socket or on unmarked sockets use a mark of 0.
This causes PMTUD not to work when using routing based on
netfilter fwmark mangling and fwmark ip rules, such as:

  iptables -j MARK --set-mark 17
  ip rule add fwmark 17 lookup 100

This patch causes these route lookups to use the fwmark from the
received ICMP error when the fwmark_reflect sysctl is enabled.
This allows the administrator to make PMTUD work by configuring
appropriate fwmark rules to mark the inbound ICMP packets.

Black-box tested using user-mode linux by pointing different
fwmarks at routing tables egressing on different interfaces, and
using iptables mangling to mark packets inbound on each interface
with the interface's fwmark. ICMPv4 and ICMPv6 PMTU discovery
work as expected when mark reflection is enabled and fail when
it is disabled.
