* [NET]: Inline net_device_statsRusty Russell2007-04-255-10/+18
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Network drivers which keep stats allocate their own stats structure then write a get_stats() function to return them. It would be nice if this were done by default. 1) Add a new "stats" field to "struct net_device". 2) Add a new feature field to say "this driver uses the internal one" 3) Have a default "get_stats" which returns NULL if that feature not set. 4) Change callers to check result of get_stats call for NULL, not if ->get_stats is set. This should not break backwards compatibility with older drivers, yet allow modern drivers to shed some boilerplate code. Lightly tested: works for a modified lguest network driver.

* [NET]: random functions can use nsec resolution instead of usecEric Dumazet2007-04-251-23/+13
| | | | | | | | | | | | | In order to get more randomness for secure_tcpv6_sequence_number(), secure_tcp_sequence_number(), secure_dccp_sequence_number() functions, we can use the high resolution time services, providing nanosec resolution. I've also done two kmalloc()/kzalloc() conversions. Signed-off-by: Eric Dumazet <dada1@cosmosbay.com> Acked-by: James Morris <jmorris@namei.org> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>

* [IPV4]: align inet_protos[] on SMPEric Dumazet2007-04-251-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | As IPPROTO_TCP is 6, it makes sense to make sure inet_protos[] array is properly cache line aligned to avoid false sharing on SMP. c0680540 b peer_total c0680544 b inet_peer_unused_head c0680560 B inet_protos On i386 this example, we can see that inet_protos[IPPROTO_TCP] shares a potentially hot (and modified) cache line.

* [NET] fib_rules: Flush route cache after rule modificationsThomas Graf2007-04-254-0/+25
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The results of FIB rules lookups are cached in the routing cache except for IPv6 as no such cache exists. So far, it was the responsibility of the user to flush the cache after modifying any rules. This lead to many false bug reports due to misunderstanding of this concept. This patch automatically flushes the route cache after inserting or deleting a rule. Thanks to Muli Ben-Yehuda <muli@il.ibm.com> for catching a bug in the previous patch.

* [NET]: Allow forwarding of ip_summed except CHECKSUM_COMPLETEHerbert Xu2007-04-254-3/+10
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Right now Xen has a horrible hack that lets it forward packets with partial checksums. One of the reasons that CHECKSUM_PARTIAL and CHECKSUM_COMPLETE were added is so that we can get rid of this hack (where it creates two extra bits in the skbuff to essentially mirror ip_summed without being destroyed by the forwarding code). I had forgotten that I've already gone through all the deivce drivers last time around to make sure that they're looking at ip_summed == CHECKSUM_PARTIAL rather than ip_summed != 0 on transmit. In any case, I've now done that again so it should definitely be safe. Unfortunately nobody has yet added any code to update CHECKSUM_COMPLETE values on forward so we I'm setting that to CHECKSUM_NONE. This should be safe to remove for bridging but I'd like to check that code path first. So here is the patch that lets us get rid of the hack by preserving ip_summed (mostly) on forwarded packets.

* [NET] fib_rules: Add no-operation actionThomas Graf2007-04-252-2/+4
| | | | | | | | | The use of nop rules simplifies the usage of goto rules and adds more flexibility as they allow targets to remain while the actual content of the branches can change easly. Signed-off-by: Thomas Graf <tgraf@suug.ch> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
* [NET] fib_rules: Mark rules detached from the deviceThomas Graf2007-04-252-1/+6
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Rules which match against device names in their selector can remain while the device itself disappears, in fact the device doesn't have to present when the rule is added in the first place. The device name is resolved by trying when the rule is added and later by listening to NETDEV_REGISTER/UNREGISTER notifications. This patch adds the flag FIB_RULE_DEV_DETACHED which is set towards userspace when a rule contains a device match which is unresolved at the moment. This eases spotting the reason why certain rules seem not to function properly. Signed-off-by: Thomas Graf <tgraf@suug.ch> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
* [NET] fib_rules: goto rule actionThomas Graf2007-04-253-6/+94
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This patch adds a new rule action FR_ACT_GOTO which allows to skip a set of rules by jumping to another rule. The rule to jump to is specified via the FRA_GOTO attribute which carries a rule preference. Referring to a rule which doesn't exists is explicitely allowed. Such goto rules are marked with the flag FIB_RULE_UNRESOLVED and will act like a rule with a non-matching selector. The rule will become functional as soon as its target is present. The goto action enables performance optimizations by reducing the average number of rules that have to be passed per lookup. Example: 0: from all lookup local 40: not from all to 192.168.23.128 goto 32766 41: from all fwmark 0xa blackhole 42: from all fwmark 0xff blackhole 32766: from all lookup main Signed-off-by: Thomas Graf <tgraf@suug.ch> Signed-off-by: David S.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This option was introduced in draft-ietf-tsvwg-sctpsocket-13. It prevents head-of-line blocking in the case of one-to-many endpoint. Applications enabling this option really must enable SCTP_SNDRCV event so that they would know where the data belongs. Based on an earlier patch by Ivan Skytte Jørgensen. Additionally, this functionality now permits multiple associations on the same endpoint to enter Partial Delivery. Applications should be extra careful, when using this functionality, to track EOR indicators. Signed-off-by: Vlad Yasevich <vladislav.yasevich@hp.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
