    rds: Enable RDS IPv6 support · 1e2b44e7
    Ka-Cheong Poon authored
    This patch enables RDS to use IPv6 addresses. For RDS/TCP, the
    listener is now an IPv6 endpoint which accepts both IPv4 and IPv6
    connection requests.  RDS/RDMA/IB uses a private data (struct
    rds_ib_connect_private) exchange between endpoints at RDS connection
    establishment time to support RDMA. This private data exchange uses a
    32 bit integer to represent an IP address. This needs to be changed in
    order to support IPv6. A new private data struct
    rds6_ib_connect_private is introduced to handle this. To ensure
    backward compatibility, an IPv6 capable RDS stack uses another RDMA
    listener port (RDS_CM_PORT) to accept IPv6 connection. And it
    continues to use the original RDS_PORT for IPv4 RDS connections. When
    it needs to communicate with an IPv6 peer, it uses the RDS_CM_PORT to
    send the connection set up request.
    v5: Fixed syntax problem (David Miller).
    v4: Changed port history comments in rds.h (Sowmini Varadhan).
    v3: Added support to set up IPv4 connection using mapped address
        (David Miller).
        Added support to set up connection between link local and non-link
        Various review comments from Santosh Shilimkar and Sowmini Varadhan.
    v2: Fixed bound and peer address scope mismatched issue.
        Added back rds_connect() IPv6 changes.
