2011-02-04inetpeer: Move ICMP rate limiting state into inet_peer entries.David S. Miller9-73/+108
Like metrics, the ICMP rate limiting bits are cached state about a destination. So move it into the inet_peer entries. If an inet_peer cannot be bound (the reason is memory allocation failure or similar), the policy is to allow. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2011-02-04ipv4: Don't miss existing cached metrics in new routes.David S. Miller1-14/+17
Always lookup to see if we have an existing inetpeer entry for a route. Let FLOWI_FLAG_PRECOW_METRICS merely influence the "create" argument to rt_bind_peer(). Also, call rt_bind_peer() unconditionally since it is not possible for rt->peer to be non-NULL at this point. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>

2011-02-04mac80211: Optimize scans on current operating channel.Ben Greear7-89/+214
This should decrease un-necessary flushes, on/off channel work, and channel changes in cases where the only scanned channel is the current operating channel. * Removes SCAN_OFF_CHANNEL flag, uses SDATA_STATE_OFFCHANNEL and is-scanning flags instead. * Add helper method to determine if we are currently configured for the operating channel. * Do no blindly go off/on channel in work.c Instead, only call appropriate on/off code when we really need to change channels. Always enable offchannel-ps mode when starting work, and disable it when we are done. * Consolidate ieee80211_offchannel_stop_station and ieee80211_offchannel_stop_beaconing, call it ieee80211_offchannel_stop_vifs instead. * Accept non-beacon frames when scanning on operating channel. * Scan state machine optimized to minimize on/off channel transitions. Also, when going on-channel, go ahead and re-enable beaconing. We're going to be there for 200ms, so seems like some useful beaconing could happen. Always enable offchannel-ps mode when starting software scan, and disable it when we are done. * Grab local->mtx earlier in __ieee80211_scan_completed_finish so that we are protected when calling hw_config(), etc. * Pass probe-responses up the stack if scanning on local channel, so that mlme can take a look.

2011-02-04ath9k: add additional checks for the baseband hang detectionFelix Fietkau2-9/+38
Since even with the latest changes the false positive issue of the baseband hang check is not fully solved yet, additional checks are needed. If the baseband hang occurs, the rx_clear signal will be stuck to high, so we can use the cycle counters to confirm it. With this patch, a hardware reset is only triggered if the baseband hang check returned true three times in a row, with a beacon interval between each check and if the busy time was also 99% or more during the check intervals.

2011-02-04ath: Fix clearing of secondary key cache entry for TKIPJouni Malinen1-1/+4
All register writes to the key cache have to be done in pairs. However, the clearing of a separate MIC entry with hardware revisions that use combined MIC key layout did not do that with one of the registers. Add the matching register write to the following register to make the KEY4 register write actually complete. This is mostly a fix for a theoretical issue since the incorrect entry that could potentially be left behind in the key cache would not match with received frames. Anyway, better make this code clean the entry correctly using paired register writes. Signed-off-by: Jouni Malinen <jouni.malinen@atheros.com> Signed-off-by: John W. Linville <linville@tuxdriver.com>
2011-02-04mac80211: do not restart ps timer during scan or offchannelRajkumar Manoharan1-1/+4
While leaving oper channel, STA informs sleep state to AP to stop sending data. Till sending ack for the nullfunc, AP continues to send the data to STA which restarts ps_timer that is causing unnecessary nullfunc exchange on timer expiry when the STA was already moved to offchannel. So don't restart ps_timer on data reception during scan. This issue was identified by the following warning.

Device command timeouts are set up very high (1 sec) and this causes AP beacon to lock up for long for example.

2011-02-04zd1211rw: batch beacon config commands togetherJussi Kivilinna1-15/+25
Beacon config function writes beacon to hw one write per byte. This is very slow (usually taking more than 100ms to finish) and causes high CPU usage when in AP-mode (kworker at ~50% on Intel Atom N270). By batching commands together zd_mac_config_beacon() runtime can be lowered to 1/5th and lower CPU usage to saner levels (<10% on Atom).

2011-02-04zd1211rw: add beacon watchdog and setting HW beacon more failsafeJussi Kivilinna2-31/+170
When doing tx/rx at high packet rate (for example simply using ping -f), device starts to fail to respond to control messages. On non-AP modes this only causes problems for LED updating code but when we are running in AP-mode we are writing new beacon to HW usually every 100ms. Now if control message fails in HW beacon setup, device lock is kept locked and beacon data partially written. This can and usually does cause: 1. HW beacon setup fail now on, as driver cannot acquire device lock. 2. Beacon-done interrupt stop working as device has incomplete beacon. Therefore make zd_mac_config_beacon() always try to release device lock and add beacon watchdog to restart beaconing when stall is detected. Also fix zd_mac_config_beacon() try acquiring device lock for max 500ms, as what old code appeared to be trying to do using loop and msleep(1).

2011-02-04mac80211: fix race between next beacon dtim and ieee80211_get_buffered_bcChristian Lamparter2-1/+4
On review of 'zd1211rw: implement beacon fetching and handling ieee80211_get_buffered_bc()', Christian Lamparter noted that [1]: Since zd_beacon_done also uploads the next beacon so long in advance, there could be an equally long race between the outdated state of the next beacon's DTIM broadcast traffic indicator (802.11-2007 which -in your case- was uploaded almost a beacon interval ago and the xmit of ieee80211_get_buffered_bc *now*. The dtim bc/mc bit might be not set, when a mc/bc arrived after the beacon was uploaded, but before the "beacon done event" from the hardware. So, dozing stations don't expect the broadcast traffic and of course, they might miss it completely. It's probably better to fix this in mac80211 (see the attached hack).

2011-02-04zd1211rw: fix ack_pending in filter_ack causing tx-packet ordering problem on monitorJussi Kivilinna1-0/+7
For reasons not very clear yet to me, filter_ack leaves matching tx-packet pending with 'ack_pending'. This causes tx-packet to be passed back to upper layer after next packet has been transfered and tx-packets might end up coming come out of monitor interface in wrong order vs. rx. Because of this when enable AP-mode, hostapd monitor interface would get packets in wrong order causing problems in WPA association. So don't use mac->ack_pending when in AP-mode.

2011-02-04zd1211rw: fix beacon interval setupJussi Kivilinna1-6/+10
Vendor driver uses CR_BNC_INTERVAL at various places, one is HW_EnableBeacon() that combinies beacon interval with BSS-type flag and DTIM value in upper 16bit of u32. The other one is HW_UpdateBcnInterval() that set_aw_pt_bi() appears to be based on. HW_UpdateBcnInterval() takes interval argument as u16 and uses that for calculations, set_aw_pt_bi() uses u32 value that has flags and dtim in upper part. This clearly seems wrong. Also HW_UpdateBcnInterval() updates only lower 16bit part of CR_BNC_INTERVAL. So make set_aw_pt_bi() do calculations on only lower u16 part of s->beacon_interval. Also set 32bit beacon interval register before reading values from device, as HW_EnableBeacon() on vendor driver does. This is required to make beacon work on AP-mode, simply reading and then writing updated values is not enough at least with zd1211b.

2011-02-04zd1211rw: use urb anchors for tx and fix tx-queue disablingJussi Kivilinna2-75/+41
When stress testing AP-mode I hit OOPS when unpluging or rmmodding driver. It appears that when tx-queue is disabled, tx-urbs might be left pending. These can cause ehci to call non-existing tx_urb_complete() (after rmmod) or uninitialized/reseted private structure (after disconnect()). Add skb queue for submitted packets and unlink pending urbs on zd_usb_disable_tx(). Part of the problem seems to be usb->free_urb_list that isn't always working as it should, causing machine freeze when trying to free the list in zd_usb_disable_tx(). Caching free urbs isn't what other drivers seem to be doing (usbnet for example) so strip free_usb_list. Patch makes tx-urb handling saner with use of urb anchors.

The fdb_create() puts a new fdb into hash with only addr set. This is not good, since there are callers, that search the hash w/o the lock and access all the other its fields.

2011-02-04r8169: RxFIFO overflow oddities with 8168 chipsets.Francois Romieu1-9/+21
Some experiment-based action to prevent my 8168 chipsets locking-up hard in the irq handler under load (pktgen ~1Mpps). Apparently a reset is not always mandatory (is it at all ?). - RTL_GIGA_MAC_VER_12 - RTL_GIGA_MAC_VER_25 Missed ~55% packets. Note: - this is an old SiS 965L motherboard - the 8168 chipset emits (lots of) control frames towards the sender - RTL_GIGA_MAC_VER_26 The chipset does not go into a frenzy of mac control pause when it crashes yet but it can still be crashed. It needs more work. Signed-off-by: Francois Romieu <romieu@fr.zoreil.com> Cc: Ivan Vecera <ivecera@redhat.com> Cc: Hayes <hayeswang@realtek.com>
2011-02-04r8169: use RxFIFO overflow workaround for 8168c chipset.Ivan Vecera1-2/+4
I found that one of the 8168c chipsets (concretely XID 1c4000c0) starts generating RxFIFO overflow errors. The result is an infinite loop in interrupt handler as the RxFIFOOver is handled only for ...MAC_VER_11. With the workaround everything goes fine.

Commit 709b46e8d90badda1898caea50483c12af178e96 ("net: Add compat ioctl support for the ipv4 multicast ioctl SIOCGETSGCNT") added the correct plumbing to handle SIOCGETSGCNT properly.

2011-02-03niu: Fix races between up/down and get_stats.David S. Miller1-16/+45
As reported by Flavio Leitner, there is no synchronization to protect NIU's get_stats method from seeing a NULL pointer in either np->rx_rings or np->tx_rings. In fact, as far as ->ndo_get_stats is concerned, these values are set completely asynchronously. Flavio attempted to fix this using a RW semaphore, which in fact works most of the time. However, dev_get_stats() can be invoked from non-sleepable contexts in some cases, so this fix doesn't work in all cases. So instead, control the visibility of the np->{rx,tx}_ring pointers when the device is being brough up, and use properties of the device down sequence to our advantage. In niu_get_stats(), return immediately if netif_running() is false. The device shutdown sequence first marks the device as not running (by clearing the __LINK_STATE_START bit), then it performans a synchronize_rcu() (in dev_deactive_many()), and then finally it invokes the driver ->ndo_stop() method. This guarentees that all invocations of niu_get_stats() either see netif_running() as false, or they see the channel pointers before ->ndo_stop() clears them out. If netif_running() is true, protect against startup races by loading the np->{rx,tx}_rings pointer into a local variable, and punting if it is NULL. Use ACCESS_ONCE to prevent the compiler from reloading the pointer on us. Also, during open, control the order in which the pointers and the ring counts become visible globally using SMP write memory barriers. We make sure the np->num_{rx,tx}_rings value is stable and visible before np->{rx,tx}_rings is. Such visibility control is not necessary on the niu_free_channels() side because of the RCU sequencing that happens during device down as described above. We are always guarenteed that all niu_get_stats calls are finished, or will see netif_running() false, by the time ->ndo_stop is invoked.

2011-02-03mac80211: Add testing functionality for TKIPJouni Malinen3-1/+112
TKIP countermeasures depend on devices being able to detect Michael MIC failures on received frames and for stations to report errors to the AP. In order to test that behavior, it is useful to be able to send out TKIP frames with incorrect Michael MIC. This testing behavior has minimal effect on the TX path, so it can be added to mac80211 for convenient use. The interface for using this functionality is a file in mac80211 netdev debugfs (tkip_mic_test). Writing a MAC address to the file makes mac80211 generate a dummy data frame that will be sent out using invalid Michael MIC value. In AP mode, the address needs to be for one of the associated stations or ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff to use a broadcast frame. In station mode, the address can be anything, e.g., the current BSSID. It should be noted that this functionality works correctly only when associated and using TKIP.

2011-02-03mac80211: Remove obsolete TKIP flexibilityJouni Malinen1-25/+7
The TKIP implementation was originally prepared to be a bit more flexible in the way Michael MIC TX/RX keys are configured. However, we are now taking care of the TX/RX MIC key swapping in user space, so this code will not be needed. Similarly, there were some remaining WPA testing code that won't be used in their current form. Remove the unneeded extra complexity.
