| | * netfilter: nf_ct_tcp: fix accepting invalid RST segmentsJozsef Kadlecsik2009-05-251-0/+4
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Robert L Mathews discovered that some clients send evil TCP RST segments, which are accepted by netfilter conntrack but discarded by the destination. Thus the conntrack entry is destroyed but the destination retransmits data until timeout. The same technique, i.e. sending properly crafted RST segments, can easily be used to bypass connlimit/connbytes based restrictions (the sample script written by Robert can be found in the netfilter mailing list archives). The patch below adds a new flag and new field to struct ip_ct_tcp_state so that checking RST segments can be made more strict and thus TCP conntrack can catch the invalid ones: the RST segment is accepted only if its sequence number higher than or equal to the highest ack we seen from the other direction. (The last_ack field cannot be reused because it is used to catch resent packets.) Signed-off-by: Jozsef Kadlecsik <kadlec@blackhole.kfki.hu> Signed-off-by: Patrick McHardy <kaber@trash.net>
* | | ipv4: New multicast-all socket optionNivedita Singhvi2009-06-022-1/+3
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | After some discussion offline with Christoph Lameter and David Stevens regarding multicast behaviour in Linux, I'm submitting a slightly modified patch from the one Christoph submitted earlier. This patch provides a new socket option IP_MULTICAST_ALL. In this case, default behaviour is _unchanged_ from the current Linux standard. The socket option is set by default to provide original behaviour. Sockets wishing to receive data only from multicast groups they join explicitly will need to clear this socket option.

It also relaxes the locking. Original spinlock (still used for multicast addresses) is not needed and is no longer used for a protection of this list. All reading and writing takes place under rtnl (with no changes). I also removed a possibility to specify the length of the address while adding or deleting unicast address. It's always dev->addr_len. The convertion touched especially e1000 and ixgbe codes when the change is not so trivial.

* | | bonding: allow bond in mode balance-alb to work properly in bridge -try4.3Jiri Pirko2009-05-291-0/+18
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | [PATCH net-next] bonding: allow bond in mode balance-alb to work properly in bridge -try4.3 (updated) changes v4.2 -> v4.3 - memcpy the address always, not just in case it differs from master->dev_addr - compare_ether_addr_64bits() is not used so there is no direct need to make new header file (I think it would be good to have bond stuff in separate file anyway). changes v4.1 -> v4.2 - use skb->pkt_type == PACKET_HOST compare rather then comparing skb dest addr against skb->dev->dev_addr The problem is described in following bugzilla: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=487763 Basically here's what's going on. In every mode, bonding interface uses the same mac address for all enslaved devices (except fail_over_mac). Only balance-alb will simultaneously use multiple MAC addresses across different slaves. When you put this kind of bond device into a bridge it will only add one of mac adresses into a hash list of mac addresses, say X. This mac address is marked as local. But this bonding interface also has mac address Y. Now then packet arrives with destination address Y, this address is not marked as local and the packed looks like it needs to be forwarded. This packet is then lost which is wrong. Notice that interfaces can be added and removed from bond while it is in bridge. *** When the multiple addresses for bridge port approach failed to solve this issue due to STP I started to think other way to solve this. I returned to previous solution but tweaked one. This patch solves the situation in the bonding without touching bridge code. For every incoming frame to bonding the destination address is compared to current address of the slave device from which tha packet came. If these two match destination address is replaced by mac address of the master. This address is known by bridge so it is delivered properly. Note that the comparsion is not made directly, it's used skb->pkt_type == PACKET_HOST instead. This is "set" previously in eth_type_trans(). I experimentally tried that this works as good as searching through the slave list (v4 of this patch).

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Currently skb_gro_header is used for packets which put the hardware header in skb->data with the rest in frags. Since the drivers that need this optimisation all provide completely non-linear packets, we can gain extra optimisations by only performing the frag0 optimisation for completely non-linear packets. In particular, we can simply test frag0 (instead of skb_headlen) to see whether the optimisation is in force. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au> Signed-off-by: David S.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The function skb_gro_header is called four times per packet which quickly adds up at 10Gb/s. This patch inlines it to allow better optimisations. Some architectures perform multiplication for page_address, which is done by each skb_gro_header invocation.

This can be done generically in core network, as suggested by David. Some devices, (particularly loopback) dont need trans_start update, because they dont have transmit watchdog. We could add a new device flag, or rely on fact that txq->tran_start can be updated is txq->xmit_lock_owner is different than -1. Use a helper function to hide our choice.

To actually make use of it we need to redesign things a bit. This patch does the work for that. We do this to so we can obey to regulatory rules accordingly for use of HT40. We end up dealing with HT40 by having two passes for each channel. The first check will see if a 20 MHz channel fits into the channel's center freq on a given frequency range. We check for a 20 MHz banwidth channel as that is the maximum an individual channel will use, at least for now. The first pass will go ahead and check if the regulatory rule for that given center of frequency allows 40 MHz bandwidths and we use this to determine whether or not the channel supports HT40 or not. So to support HT40 you'll need at a regulatory rule that allows you to use 40 MHz channels but you're channel must also be enabled and support 20 MHz by itself. The second pass is done after we do the regulatory checks over an device's supported channel list. On each channel we'll check if the control channel and the extension both: o exist o are enabled o regulatory allows 40 MHz bandwidth on its frequency range This work allows allows us to idependently check for HT40- and HT40+.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The the PACKET_ADD_MEMBERSHIP and the PACKET_DROP_MEMBERSHIP setsockopt calls for af_packet already has all of the infrastructure needed to subscribe to multiple mac addresses. All that is missing is a flag to say that the address we want to listen on is a unicast address. So introduce PACKET_MR_UNICAST and wire it up to dev_unicast_add and dev_unicast_delete. Additionally I noticed that errors from dev_mc_add were not propagated from packet_dev_mc so fix that. Signed-off-by: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm@aristanetworks.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

* | | net: release dst entry in dev_hard_start_xmit()Eric Dumazet2009-05-181-0/+3

This is because NIC tx completion calls dev_kree_skb() long after original call to dev_queue_xmit(skb). CPU cache is cold and the atomic op in dst_release() stalls. On SMP, this is quite visible if one CPU is 100% handling softirqs for a network device, since dst_clone() is done by other cpus, involving cache line ping pongs. It seems right place to release dst is in dev_hard_start_xmit(), for most devices but ones that are virtual, and some exceptions. David Miller suggested to define a new device flag, set in alloc_netdev_mq() (so that most devices set it at init time), and carefuly unset in devices which dont want a NULL skb->dst in their ndo_start_xmit(). List of devices that must clear this flag is : - loopback device, because it calls netif_rx() and quoting Patrick : "ip_route_input() doesn't accept loopback addresses, so loopback packets already need to have a dst_entry attached." - appletalk/ipddp.c : needs skb->dst in its xmit function - And all devices that call again dev_queue_xmit() from their xmit function (as some classifiers need skb->dst) : bonding, vlan, macvlan, eql, ifb, hdlc_fr Signed-off-by: Eric Dumazet <dada1@cosmosbay.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Currently when we have a signal pending we have the functionality to restart that the current system call. There are other cases such as nasty lock ordering issues where it makes sense to have a simple fix that uses try lock and restarts the system call.

This is necessary for doing pipe-specific operations such as waiting for vblank on a given CRTC. Failure to use the right pipe mapping can result in GPU hangs, or at least failure to actually sync to vblank.

The reported ATA version must be 7 or greater and the device must return values defined as valid in the standard. Only then are the characteristics reported to SCSI via the VPD B1 page. This seems like a reasonable compromise to me considering that we have been shipping several kernel releases that key off the rotation rate bit without any version checking whatsoever.

Work is progressing to switch away from pdflush as the process backing for flushing out dirty data. So it seems pointless to add more knobs to control pdflush threads. The original author of the patch did not have any specific use cases for adding the knobs, so we can easily revert this before 2.6.30 to avoid having to maintain this API forever.
