ipv6: Remove hoplimit initialization to -1
The changes introduced with git-commit a02e4b7d ("ipv6: Demark default hoplimit as zero.") missed to remove the hoplimit initialization. As a result, ipv6_get_mtu interprets the return value of dst_metric_raw (-1) as 255 and answers ping6 with this hoplimit. This patche removes the line such that ping6 is answered with the hoplimit value configured via sysctl. Signed-off-by: Thomas Egerer <thomas.egerer@secunet.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
