2007-10-10[IPSEC]: Move common output code to xfrm_outputHerbert Xu1-0/+1
Most of the code in xfrm4_output_one and xfrm6_output_one are identical so this patch moves them into a common xfrm_output function which will live in net/xfrm. In fact this would seem to fix a bug as on IPv4 we never reset the network header after a transform which may upset netfilter later on.

2007-10-10[AF_IUCV]: postpone receival of iucv-packetsUrsula Braun1-0/+7
AF_IUCV socket programs may waste Linux storage, because af_iucv allocates an skb whenever posted by the receive callback routine and receives the message immediately. Message receival is now postponed if data from previous callbacks has not yet been transferred to the receiving socket program. Instead a message handle is saved in a message queue as a reminder. Once messages could be given to the receiving socket program, there is an additional checking for entries in the message queue, followed by skb allocation and message receival if applicable.

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).

2007-10-10PHYLIB: IRQ event workqueue handling fixesMaciej W. Rozycki1-0/+3
Keep track of disable_irq_nosync() invocations and call enable_irq() the right number of times if work has been cancelled that would include them. Now that the call to flush_work_keventd() (problematic because of rtnl_mutex being held) has been replaced by cancel_work_sync() another issue has arisen and been left unresolved. As the MDIO bus cannot be accessed from the interrupt context the PHY interrupt handler uses disable_irq_nosync() to prevent from looping and schedules some work to be done as a softirq, which, apart from handling the state change of the originating PHY, is responsible for reenabling the interrupt. Now if the interrupt line is shared by another device and a call to the softirq handler has been cancelled, that call to enable_irq() never happens and the other device cannot use its interrupt anymore as its stuck disabled. I decided to use a counter rather than a flag because there may be more than one call to phy_change() cancelled in the queue -- a real one and a fake one triggered by free_irq() if DEBUG_SHIRQ is used, if nothing else. Therefore because of its nesting property enable_irq() has to be called the right number of times to match the number disable_irq_nosync() was called and restore the original state. This DEBUG_SHIRQ feature is also the reason why free_irq() has to be called before cancel_work_sync(). While at it I updated the comment about phy_stop_interrupts() being called from `keventd' -- this is no longer relevant as the use of cancel_work_sync() makes such an approach unnecessary. OTOH a similar comment referring to flush_scheduled_work() in phy_stop() still applies as using cancel_work_sync() there would be dangerous. Checked with checkpatch.pl and at the run time (with and without DEBUG_SHIRQ). Signed-off-by: Maciej W.

2007-10-10[PKT_SCHED]: Add stateless NATHerbert Xu2-0/+50
Stateless NAT is useful in controlled environments where restrictions are placed on through traffic such that we don't need connection tracking to correctly NAT protocol-specific data. In particular, this is of interest when the number of flows or the number of addresses being NATed is large, or if connection tracking information has to be replicated and where it is not practical to do so. Previously we had stateless NAT functionality which was integrated into the IPv4 routing subsystem. This was a great solution as long as the NAT worked on a subnet to subnet basis such that the number of NAT rules was relatively small. The reason is that for SNAT the routing based system had to perform a linear scan through the rules. If the number of rules is large then major renovations would have take place in the routing subsystem to make this practical. For the time being, the least intrusive way of achieving this is to use the u32 classifier written by Alexey Kuznetsov along with the actions infrastructure implemented by Jamal Hadi Salim. The following patch is an attempt at this problem by creating a new nat action that can be invoked from u32 hash tables which would allow large number of stateless NAT rules that can be used/updated in constant time. The actual NAT code is mostly based on the previous stateless NAT code written by Alexey. In future we might be able to utilise the protocol NAT code from netfilter to improve support for other protocols. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au> Signed-off-by: David S.

2007-10-10[PATCH] mac80211: revamp interface and filter configurationJohannes Berg1-56/+95
Drivers are currently supposed to keep track of monitor interfaces if they allow so-called "hard" monitor, and they are also supposed to keep track of multicast etc. This patch changes that, replaces the set_multicast_list() callback with a new configure_filter() callback that takes filter flags (FIF_*) instead of interface flags (IFF_*). For a driver, this means it should open the filter as much as necessary to get all frames requested by the filter flags. Accordingly, the filter flags are named "positively", e.g. FIF_ALLMULTI. Multicast filtering is a bit special in that drivers that have no multicast address filters need to allow multicast frames through when either the FIF_ALLMULTI flag is set or when the mc_count value is positive. At the same time, drivers are no longer notified about monitor interfaces at all, this means they now need to implement the start() and stop() callbacks and the new change_filter_flags() callback. Also, the start()/stop() ordering changed, start() is now called *before* any add_interface() as it really should be, and stop() after any remove_interface(). The patch also changes the behaviour of setting the bssid to multicast for scanning when IEEE80211_HW_NO_PROBE_FILTERING is set; the IEEE80211_HW_NO_PROBE_FILTERING flag is removed and the filter flag FIF_BCN_PRBRESP_PROMISC introduced. This is a lot more efficient for hardware like b43 that supports it and other hardware can still set the BSSID to all-ones.

2007-10-10[NETNS]: Simplify the network namespace list locking rules.Eric W. Biederman1-3/+0
Denis V. Lunev <den@sw.ru> noticed that the locking rules for the network namespace list are over complicated and broken. In particular the current register_netdev_notifier currently does not take any lock making the for_each_net iteration racy with network namespace creation and destruction. Oops. The fact that we need to use for_each_net in rtnl_unlock() when the rtnetlink support becomes per network namespace makes designing the proper locking tricky. In addition we need to be able to call rtnl_lock() and rtnl_unlock() when we have the net_mutex held. After thinking about it and looking at the alternatives carefully it looks like the simplest and most maintainable solution is to remove net_list_mutex altogether, and to use the rtnl_mutex instead.
