net: tcp_probe: allow more advanced ingress filtering by mark
Currently, the tcp_probe snooper can either filter packets by a given port (handed to the module via module parameter e.g. port=80) or lets all TCP traffic pass (port=0, default). When a port is specified, the port number is tested against the sk's source/destination port. Thus, if one of them matches, the information will be further processed for the log. As this is quite limited, allow for more advanced filtering possibilities which can facilitate debugging/analysis with the help of the tcp_probe snooper. Therefore, similarly as added to BPF machine in commit 7e75f93e ("pkt_sched: ingress socket filter by mark"), add the possibility to use skb->mark as a filter. If the mark is not being used otherwise, this allows ingress filtering by flow (e.g. in order to track updates from only a single flow, or a subset of all flows for a given port) and other things such as dynamic logging and reconfiguration without removing/re-inserting the tcp_probe module, etc. Simple example: insmod net/ipv4/tcp_probe.ko fwmark=8888 full=1 ... iptables -A INPUT -i eth4 -t mangle -p tcp --dport 22 \ --sport 60952 -j MARK --set-mark 8888 [... sampling interval ...] iptables -D INPUT -i eth4 -t mangle -p tcp --dport 22 \ --sport 60952 -j MARK --set-mark 8888 The current option to filter by a given port is still being preserved. A similar approach could be done for the sctp_probe module as a follow-up. Signed-off-by: Daniel Borkmann <dborkman@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
