ipv6: invert flowlabel sharing check in process and user mode A request for a flowlabel fails in process or user exclusive mode must fail if the caller pid or uid does not match. Invert the test. Previously, the test was unsafe wrt PID recycling, but indeed tested for inequality: fl1->owner != fl->owner Fixes: 4f82f45730c68 ("net ip6 flowlabel: Make owner a union of struct pid* and kuid_t") Signed-off-by: Willem de Bruijn <email@example.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
