2007-10-10[DCCP]: Add socket option to query the current MPSGerrit Renker1-0/+3
This enables applications to query the current value of the Maximum Packet Size via a socket option, suggested as a SHOULD in (RFC 4340, p. 102). This socket option is useful to avoid the annoying bail-out via `-EMSGSIZE'. In particular, as fragmentation is not currently supported (and its use is partly discouraged in RFC 4340). With this option, it is possible to size buffers accordingly, e.g. int buflen = dccp_get_cur_mps(sockfd); /* or */ if (msgsize > dccp_get_cur_mps(sockfd)) die("message is too large for this path"); Signed-off-by: Gerrit Renker <gerrit@erg.abdn.ac.uk> Signed-off-by: Ian McDonald <ian.mcdonald@jandi.co.nz> Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

2007-10-10[MAC80211]: improve radiotap injectionJohannes Berg1-6/+26
This improves radiotap injection by removing the shortcut over TX handlers that led to BUGS when injecting frames without setting a rate and also resulted in various other quirks. Now, TX handlers are run but some information that was present in the radiotap header is used instead of automatic settings.

2007-10-10[DCCP]: Rate-limit DCCP-SyncsGerrit Renker1-0/+5
This implements a SHOULD from RFC 4340, 7.5.4: "To protect against denial-of-service attacks, DCCP implementations SHOULD impose a rate limit on DCCP-Syncs sent in response to sequence-invalid packets, such as not more than eight DCCP-Syncs per second." The rate-limit is maintained on a per-socket basis. This is a more stringent policy than enforcing the rate-limit on a per-source-address basis and protects against attacks with forged source addresses. Moreover, the mechanism is deliberately kept simple. In contrast to xrlim_allow(), bursts of Sync packets in reply to sequence-invalid packets are not supported. This foils such attacks where the receipt of a Sync triggers further sequence-invalid packets. (I have tested this mechanism against xrlim_allow algorithm for Syncs, permitting bursts just increases the problems.) In order to keep flexibility, the timeout parameter can be set via sysctl; and the whole mechanism can even be disabled (which is however not recommended). The algorithm in this patch has been improved with regard to wrapping issues thanks to a suggestion by Arnaldo. Commiter note: Rate limited the step 6 DCCP_WARN too, as it says we're sending a sync.

2007-10-10Device tree aware EMAC driverDavid Gibson1-0/+156
Based on BenH's earlier work, this is a new version of the EMAC driver for the built-in ethernet found on PowerPC 4xx embedded CPUs. The same ASIC is also found in the Axon bridge chip. This new version is designed to work in the arch/powerpc tree, using the device tree to probe the device, rather than the old and ugly arch/ppc OCP layer. This driver is designed to sit alongside the old driver (that lies in drivers/net/ibm_emac and this one in drivers/net/ibm_newemac). The old driver is left in place to support arch/ppc until arch/ppc itself reaches its final demise (not too long now, with luck). This driver still has a number of things that could do with cleaning up, but I think they can be fixed up after merging. Specifically: - Should be adjusted to properly use the dma mapping API. Axon needs this. - Probe logic needs reworking, in conjuction with the general probing code for of_platform devices. The dependencies here between EMAC, MAL, ZMII etc. make this complicated. At present, it usually works, because we initialize and register the sub-drivers before the EMAC driver itself, and (being in driver code) runs after the devices themselves have been instantiated from the device tree.

2007-10-10[NET] netconsole: Support dynamic reconfiguration using configfsSatyam Sharma1-0/+68
Based upon initial work by Keiichi Kii <k-keiichi@bx.jp.nec.com>. This patch introduces support for dynamic reconfiguration (adding, removing and/or modifying parameters of netconsole targets at runtime) using a userspace interface exported via configfs. Documentation is also updated accordingly. Issues and brief design overview: (1) Kernel-initiated creation / destruction of kernel objects is not possible with configfs -- the lifetimes of the "config items" is managed exclusively from userspace. But netconsole must support boot/module params too, and these are parsed in kernel and hence netpolls must be setup from the kernel. Joel Becker suggested to separately manage the lifetimes of the two kinds of netconsole_target objects -- those created via configfs mkdir(2) from userspace and those specified from the boot/module option string. This adds complexity and some redundancy here and also means that boot/module param-created targets are not exposed through the configfs namespace (and hence cannot be updated / destroyed dynamically). However, this saves us from locking / refcounting complexities that would need to be introduced in configfs to support kernel-initiated item creation / destroy there. (2) In configfs, item creation takes place in the call chain of the mkdir(2) syscall in the driver subsystem. If we used an ioctl(2) to create / destroy objects from userspace, the special userspace program is able to fill out the structure to be passed into the ioctl and hence specify attributes such as local interface that are required at the time we set up the netpoll. For configfs, this information is not available at the time of mkdir(2). So, we keep all newly-created targets (via configfs) disabled by default. The user is expected to set various attributes appropriately (including the local network interface if required) and then write(2) "1" to the "enabled" attribute. Thus, netpoll_setup() is then called on the set parameters in the context of _this_ write(2) on the "enabled" attribute itself. This design enables the user to reconfigure existing netconsole targets at runtime to be attached to newly-come-up interfaces that may not have existed when netconsole was loaded or when the targets were actually created. All this effectively enables us to get rid of custom ioctls. (3) Ultra-paranoid configfs attribute show() and store() operations, with sanity and input range checking, using only safe string primitives, and compliant with the recommendations in Documentation/filesystems/sysfs.txt. (4) A new function netpoll_print_options() is created in the netpoll API, that just prints out the configured parameters for a netpoll structure. netpoll_parse_options() is modified to use that and it is also exported to be used from netconsole.

2007-10-10[NET] netconsole: Support multiple logging targetsSatyam Sharma1-0/+6
Based upon initial work by Keiichi Kii <k-keiichi@bx.jp.nec.com>. This patch introduces support for multiple targets, independent of CONFIG_NETCONSOLE_DYNAMIC -- this is useful even in the default case and (including the infrastructure introduced in previous patches) doesn't really add too many bytes to module text. All the complexity (and size) comes with the dynamic reconfigurability / userspace interface patch, and so it's plausible users may want to keep this enabled but that disabled (say to avoid a dependency on CONFIG_CONFIGFS_FS too). Also update documentation to mention the use of ";" separator to specify multiple logging targets in the boot/module option string. Brief overview: We maintain a target_list (and corresponding lock). Get rid of the static "default_target" and introduce allocation and release functions for our netconsole_target objects (but keeping sure to preserve previous behaviour such as default values). During init_netconsole(), ";" is used as the separator to identify multiple target specifications in the boot/module option string. The target specifications are parsed and netpolls setup. During exit, the target_list is torn down and all items released.

2007-10-10[NET]: Make NAPI polling independent of struct net_device objects.Stephen Hemminger3-771/+15
Several devices have multiple independant RX queues per net device, and some have a single interrupt doorbell for several queues. In either case, it's easier to support layouts like that if the structure representing the poll is independant from the net device itself. The signature of the ->poll() call back goes from: int foo_poll(struct net_device *dev, int *budget) to int foo_poll(struct napi_struct *napi, int budget) The caller is returned the number of RX packets processed (or the number of "NAPI credits" consumed if you want to get abstract). The callee no longer messes around bumping dev->quota, *budget, etc. because that is all handled in the caller upon return. The napi_struct is to be embedded in the device driver private data structures. Furthermore, it is the driver's responsibility to disable all NAPI instances in it's ->stop() device close handler. Since the napi_struct is privatized into the driver's private data structures, only the driver knows how to get at all of the napi_struct instances it may have per-device. With lots of help and suggestions from Rusty Russell, Roland Dreier, Michael Chan, Jeff Garzik, and Jamal Hadi Salim. Bug fixes from Thomas Graf, Roland Dreier, Peter Zijlstra, Joseph Fannin, Scott Wood, Hans J. Koch, and Michael Chan. [ Ported to current tree and all drivers converted.

2007-09-17ACPI: thinkpad-acpi: revert new 2.6.23 CONFIG_THINKPAD_ACPI_INPUT_ENABLED optionHenrique de Moraes Holschuh1-17/+75
Revert new 2.6.23 CONFIG_THINKPAD_ACPI_INPUT_ENABLED Kconfig option because it would create a legacy we don't want to support. CONFIG_THINKPAD_ACPI_INPUT_ENABLED was added to try to fix an issue that is now moot with the addition of the netlink ACPI event report interface to the ACPI core. Now that ACPI core can send events over netlink, we can use a different strategy to keep backwards compatibility with older userspace, without the need for the CONFIG_THINKPAD_ACPI_INPUT_ENABLED games. And it arrived before CONFIG_THINKPAD_ACPI_INPUT_ENABLED made it to a stable mainline kernel, even, which is Good. This patch is in sync with some changes to thinkpad-acpi backports, that will keep things sane for userspace across different combinations of kernel versions, thinkpad-acpi backports (or the lack thereof), and userspace capabilities: Unless a module parameter is used, thinkpad-acpi will now behave in such a way that it will work well (by default) with userspace that still uses only the old ACPI procfs event interface and doesn't care for thinkpad-acpi input devices. It will also always work well with userspace that has been updated to use both the thinkpad-acpi input devices, and ACPI core netlink event interface, regardless of any module parameter. The module parameter was added to allow thinkpad-acpi to work with userspace that has been partially updated to use thinkpad-acpi input devices, but not the new ACPI core netlink event interface. To use this mode of hot key reporting, one has to specify the hotkey_report_mode=2 module parameter. The thinkpad-acpi driver exports the value of hotkey_report_mode through sysfs, as well. thinkpad-acpi backports to older kernels, that do not support the new ACPI core netlink interface, have code to allow userspace to switch hotkey_report_mode at runtime through sysfs. This capability will not be provided in mainline thinkpad-acpi as it is not needed there. Signed-off-by: Henrique de Moraes Holschuh <hmh@hmh.eng.br> Cc: Michael S.

Commit b663a79c191508f27cd885224b592a878c0ba0f6 ("taskstats: add context-switch counters") incorrectly removed a comma from a printf statement. This causes corruption in the output printing or a seg fault.

2007-08-22Document Linux Memory PolicyLee Schermerhorn1-0/+332
I couldn't find any memory policy documentation in the Documentation directory, so here is my attempt to document it. There's lots more that could be written about the internal design--including data structures, functions, etc. However, if you agree that this is better that the nothing that exists now, perhaps it could be merged. This will provide a baseline for updates to document the many policy patches that are currently being worked.
