2014-04-22filter: added BPF random opcodeChema Gonzalez1-1/+10
Added a new ancillary load (bpf call in eBPF parlance) that produces a 32-bit random number. We are implementing it as an ancillary load (instead of an ISA opcode) because (a) it is simpler, (b) allows easy JITing, and (c) seems more in line with generic ISAs that do not have "get a random number" as a instruction, but as an OS call. The main use for this ancillary load is to perform random packet sampling.

2013-12-17bpf_exp: free duplicated labels at exit timeDaniel Borkmann1-7/+20
Valgrind found that extracted labels that are passed from the lexer weren't freed upon exit. Therefore, add a small helper function that walks label tables and frees them. Since also NULL can be passed to free(3), we do not need to take care of that here. While at it, fix up a spacing error in bpf_set_curr_label().

2013-12-11filter: bpf_asm: add minimal bpf asm toolDaniel Borkmann1-0/+749
There are a couple of valid use cases for a minimal low-level bpf asm like tool, for example, using/linking to libpcap is not an option, the required BPF filters use Linux extensions that are not supported by libpcap's compiler, a filter might be more complex and not cleanly implementable with libpcap's compiler, particular filter codes should be optimized differently than libpcap's internal BPF compiler does, or for security audits of emitted BPF JIT code for prepared set of BPF instructions resp. BPF JIT compiler development in general. Then, in such cases writing such a filter in low-level syntax can be an good alternative, for example, xt_bpf and cls_bpf users might have requirements that could result in more complex filter code, or one that cannot be expressed with libpcap (e.g. different return codes in cls_bpf for flowids on various BPF code paths). Moreover, BPF JIT implementors may wish to manually write test cases in order to verify the resulting JIT image, and thus need low-level access to BPF code generation as well. Therefore, complete the available toolchain for BPF with this small bpf_asm helper tool for the tools/net/ directory. These 3 complementary minimal helper tools round up and facilitate BPF development. Signed-off-by: Daniel Borkmann <dborkman@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
