2011-01-30batman-adv: Remove vis info on hashing errorsSven Eckelmann1-1/+1
A newly created vis info object must be removed when it couldn't be added to the hash. The old_info which has to be replaced was already removed and isn't related to the hash anymore. Signed-off-by: Sven Eckelmann <sven@narfation.org>
2011-01-30net: Add compat ioctl support for the ipv4 multicast ioctl SIOCGETSGCNTEric W. Biederman3-0/+81
SIOCGETSGCNT is not a unique ioctl value as it it maps tio SIOCPROTOPRIVATE +1, which unfortunately means the existing infrastructure for compat networking ioctls is insufficient. A trivial compact ioctl implementation would conflict with: SIOCAX25ADDUID SIOCAIPXPRISLT SIOCGETSGCNT_IN6 SIOCGETSGCNT SIOCRSSCAUSE SIOCX25SSUBSCRIP SIOCX25SDTEFACILITIES To make this work I have updated the compat_ioctl decode path to mirror the the normal ioctl decode path. I have added an ipv4 inet_compat_ioctl function so that I can have ipv4 specific compat ioctls. I have added a compat_ioctl function into struct proto so I can break out ioctls by which kind of ip socket I am using. I have added a compat_raw_ioctl function because SIOCGETSGCNT only works on raw sockets. I have added a ipmr_compat_ioctl that mirrors the normal ipmr_ioctl. This was necessary because unfortunately the struct layout for the SIOCGETSGCNT has unsigned longs in it so changes between 32bit and 64bit kernels. This change was sufficient to run a 32bit ip multicast routing daemon on a 64bit kernel. Reported-by: Bill Fenner <fenner@aristanetworks.com> Signed-off-by: Eric W.

Biederman <ebiederm@aristanetworks.com> Date: Sun Nov 8 00:53:51 2009 -0800 net: Support specifying the network namespace upon device creation. There is no good reason to not support userspace specifying the network namespace during device creation, and it makes it easier to create a network device and pass it to a child network namespace with a well known name. We have to be careful to ensure that the target network namespace for the new device exists through the life of the call. To keep that logic clear I have factored out the network namespace grabbing logic into rtnl_link_get_net. In addtion we need to continue to pass the source network namespace to the rtnl_link_ops.newlink method so that we can find the base device source network namespace. Signed-off-by: Eric W.

2011-01-29gro: Reset dev pointer on reuseHerbert Xu1-0/+1
On older kernels the VLAN code may zero skb->dev before dropping it and causing it to be reused by GRO. Unfortunately we didn't reset skb->dev in that case which causes the next GRO user to get a bogus skb->dev pointer. This particular problem no longer happens with the current upstream kernel due to changes in VLAN processing. However, for correctness we should still reset the skb->dev pointer in the GRO reuse function in case a future user does the same thing.

2011-01-27ipv6: Remove route peer binding assertions.David S. Miller1-4/+0
They are bogus. The basic idea is that I wanted to make sure that prefixed routes never bind to peers. The test I used was whether RTF_CACHE was set. But first of all, the RTF_CACHE flag is set at different spots depending upon which ip6_rt_copy() caller you're talking about. I've validated all of the code paths, and even in the future where we bind peers more aggressively (for route metric COW'ing) we never bind to prefix'd routes, only fully specified ones. This even applies when addrconf or icmp6 routes are allocated. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>

2011-01-25TCP: fix a bug that triggers large number of TCP RST by mistakeJerry Chu1-1/+1
This patch fixes a bug that causes TCP RST packets to be generated on otherwise correctly behaved applications, e.g., no unread data on close,..., etc. To trigger the bug, at least two conditions must be met: 1. The FIN flag is set on the last data packet, i.e., it's not on a separate, FIN only packet. 2. The size of the last data chunk on the receive side matches exactly with the size of buffer posted by the receiver, and the receiver closes the socket without any further read attempt. This bug was first noticed on our netperf based testbed for our IW10 proposal to IETF where a large number of RST packets were observed. netperf's read side code meets the condition 2 above 100%. Before the fix, tcp_data_queue() will queue the last skb that meets condition 1 to sk_receive_queue even though it has fully copied out (skb_copy_datagram_iovec()) the data. Then if condition 2 is also met, tcp_recvmsg() often returns all the copied out data successfully without actually consuming the skb, due to a check "if ((chunk = len - tp->ucopy.len) != 0) {" and "len -= chunk;" after tcp_prequeue_process() that causes "len" to become 0 and an early exit from the big while loop. I don't see any reason not to free the skb whose data have been fully consumed in tcp_data_queue(), regardless of the FIN flag. We won't get there if MSG_PEEK is on. Am I missing some arcane cases related to urgent data? Signed-off-by: H.K. Jerry Chu <hkchu@google.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>

2011-01-24GRO: fix merging a paged skb after non-paged skbsMichal Schmidt1-2/+6
Suppose that several linear skbs of the same flow were received by GRO. They were thus merged into one skb with a frag_list. Then a new skb of the same flow arrives, but it is a paged skb with data starting in its frags[]. Before adding the skb to the frag_list skb_gro_receive() will of course adjust the skb to throw away the headers. It correctly modifies the page_offset and size of the frag, but it leaves incorrect information in the skb: ->data_len is not decreased at all. ->len is decreased only by headlen, as if no change were done to the frag. Later in a receiving process this causes skb_copy_datagram_iovec() to return -EFAULT and this is seen in userspace as the result of the recv() syscall. In practice the bug can be reproduced with the sfc driver. By default the driver uses an adaptive scheme when it switches between using napi_gro_receive() (with skbs) and napi_gro_frags() (with pages). The bug is reproduced when under rx load with enough successful GRO merging the driver decides to switch from the former to the latter. Manual control is also possible, so reproducing this is easy with netcat: - on machine1 (with sfc): nc -l 12345 > /dev/null - on machine2: nc machine1 12345 < /dev/zero - on machine1: echo 1 > /sys/module/sfc/parameters/rx_alloc_method # use skbs echo 2 > /sys/module/sfc/parameters/rx_alloc_method # use pages - See that nc has quit suddenly.

2011-01-24netfilter: xt_iprange: Incorrect xt_iprange boundary check for IPv6Thomas Jacob1-9/+7
iprange_ipv6_sub was substracting 2 unsigned ints and then casting the result to int to find out whether they are lt, eq or gt each other, this doesn't work if the full 32 bits of each part can be used in IPv6 addresses. Patch should remedy that without significant performance penalties. Also number of ntohl calls can be reduced this way (Jozsef Kadlecsik).

In commit 44b8288308ac9d (net_sched: pfifo_head_drop problem), we fixed a problem with pfifo_head drops that incorrectly decreased sch->bstats.bytes and sch->bstats.packets Several qdiscs (CHOKe, SFQ, pfifo_head, ...) are able to drop a previously enqueued packet, and bstats cannot be changed, so bstats/rates are not accurate (over estimated) This patch changes the qdisc_bstats updates to be done at dequeue() time instead of enqueue() time. bstats counters no longer account for dropped frames, and rates are more correct, since enqueue() bursts dont have effect on dequeue() rate.

2011-01-20kconfig: rename CONFIG_EMBEDDED to CONFIG_EXPERTDavid Rientjes3-6/+6
The meaning of CONFIG_EMBEDDED has long since been obsoleted; the option is used to configure any non-standard kernel with a much larger scope than only small devices. This patch renames the option to CONFIG_EXPERT in init/Kconfig and fixes references to the option throughout the kernel. A new CONFIG_EMBEDDED option is added that automatically selects CONFIG_EXPERT when enabled and can be used in the future to isolate options that should only be considered for embedded systems (RISC architectures, SLOB, etc). Calling the option "EXPERT" more accurately represents its intention: only expert users who understand the impact of the configuration changes they are making should enable it.

2011-01-19Bluetooth: Fix race condition with conn->sec_levelJohan Hedberg2-6/+11
The conn->sec_level value is supposed to represent the current level of security that the connection has. However, by assigning to it before requesting authentication it will have the wrong value during the authentication procedure. To fix this a pending_sec_level variable is added which is used to track the desired security level while making sure that sec_level always represents the current level of security.

2011-01-19Bluetooth: Fix authentication request for L2CAP raw socketsJohan Hedberg1-1/+2
When there is an existing connection l2cap_check_security needs to be called to ensure that the security level of the new socket is fulfilled. Normally l2cap_do_start takes care of this, but that function doesn't get called for SOCK_RAW type sockets. This patch adds the necessary l2cap_check_security call to the appropriate branch in l2cap_do_connect.

This reverts commit 045309820afe047920a50de25634dab46a1e851d. That commit is wrong for two reasons: - The conn->sec_level shouldn't be updated without performing authentication first (as it's supposed to represent the level of security that the existing connection has) - A higher auth_type value doesn't mean "more secure" like the commit seems to assume. E.g. dedicated bonding with MITM protection is 0x03 whereas general bonding without MITM protection is 0x04. hci_conn_auth already takes care of updating conn->auth_type so hci_connect doesn't need to do it.

2011-01-18ipv6: Silence privacy extensions initializationRomain Francoise1-3/+0
When a network namespace is created (via CLONE_NEWNET), the loopback interface is automatically added to the new namespace, triggering a printk in ipv6_add_dev() if CONFIG_IPV6_PRIVACY is set. This is problematic for applications which use CLONE_NEWNET as part of a sandbox, like Chromium's suid sandbox or recent versions of vsftpd. On a busy machine, it can lead to thousands of useless "lo: Disabled Privacy Extensions" messages appearing in dmesg. It's easy enough to check the status of privacy extensions via the use_tempaddr sysctl, so just removing the printk seems like the most sensible solution.
