It seems there are a bunch of call sites where inet_ehash_nolisten() return
code is not checked, thus I didn't think of it to be a problem.

This makes a lot of sense. I can post a v3 patch completely removing
the fast path.

However, this patch's v1 was already reviewed by
Kuniyuki Iwashima <>, v2 is a nit, if posting a v3
I think I should remove the Reviewed-by: since it would completely
change the patch, but what is the preferred fix?

Best regards,
