ipv6: Fix SO_REUSEPORT UDP socket with implicit sk_ipv6only

If a sk_v6_rcv_saddr is !IPV6_ADDR_ANY and !IPV6_ADDR_MAPPED, it
implicitly implies it is an ipv6only socket.  However, in inet6_bind(),
this addr_type checking and setting sk->sk_ipv6only to 1 are only done
after sk->sk_prot->get_port(sk, snum) has been completed successfully.

This inconsistency between sk_v6_rcv_saddr and sk_ipv6only confuses
the 'get_port()'.

In particular, when binding SO_REUSEPORT UDP sockets,
udp_reuseport_add_sock(sk,...) is called.  udp_reuseport_add_sock()
checks "ipv6_only_sock(sk2) == ipv6_only_sock(sk)" before adding sk to
sk2->sk_reuseport_cb.  In this case, ipv6_only_sock(sk2) could be
1 while ipv6_only_sock(sk) is still 0 here.  The end result is,
reuseport_alloc(sk) is called instead of adding sk to the existing

It can be reproduced by binding two SO_REUSEPORT UDP sockets on an
IPv6 address (!ANY and !MAPPED).  Only one of the socket will
receive packet.

The fix is to set the implicit sk_ipv6only before calling get_port().
The original sk_ipv6only has to be saved such that it can be restored
in case get_port() failed.  The situation is similar to the
inet_reset_saddr(sk) after get_port() has failed.

Thanks to Calvin Owens <> who created an easy
reproduction which leads to a fix.
