| * net_cls: fix unconfigured struct tcf_proto keeps chaining and avoid kernel ↵Minoru Usui2009-06-021-6/+17
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | panic when we use cls_cgroup This patch fixes a bug which unconfigured struct tcf_proto keeps chaining in tc_ctl_tfilter(), and avoids kernel panic in cls_cgroup_classify() when we use cls_cgroup. When we execute 'tc filter add', tcf_proto is allocated, initialized by classifier's init(), and chained. After it's chained, tc_ctl_tfilter() calls classifier's change(). When classifier's change() fails, tc_ctl_tfilter() does not free and keeps tcf_proto. In addition, cls_cgroup is initialized in change() not in init(). It accesses unconfigured struct tcf_proto which is chained before change(), then hits Oops.

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>

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.

* | | tcp: fix loop in ofo handling code and reduce its complexityIlpo Järvinen2009-05-291-17/+11

The loop was very much overengineered recently in commit 915219441d566 (tcp: Use SKB queue and list helpers instead of doing it by-hand), while it basically just wants to know if there are skbs after 'skb'. Also it got broken because skb1 = skb->next got translated into skb1 = skb1->next (though abstracted) improperly. Note that 'skb1' is pointing to previous sk_buff than skb or NULL if at head. Two things went wrong: - We'll kfree 'skb' on the first iteration instead of the skbuff following 'skb' (it would require required SACK reneging to recover I think). - The list head case where 'skb1' is NULL is checked too early and the loop won't execute whereas it previously did. Conclusion, mostly revert the recent changes which makes the cset very messy looking but using proper accessor in the previous-like version.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Instead of doing two 16-bit operations for the source/destination ports, we can do one 32-bit operation to take care both. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
* | | | gro: Only use skb_gro_header for completely non-linear packetsHerbert Xu2009-05-271-1/+2
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | 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.

* | | | gro: Inline skb_gro_header and cache frag0 virtual addressHerbert Xu2009-05-271-15/+12
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | 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 patch caches that value in skb->cb to avoid the unnecessary multiplications. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
* | | | gro: Open-code frags copy in skb_gro_receiveHerbert Xu2009-05-271-3/+6
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | gcc does a poor job at generating code for the memcpy of the frags array in skb_gro_receive, which is the primary purpose of that function when merging frags. In particular, it can't utilise the alignment information of the source and destination. This patch open-codes the copy so we process words instead of bytes.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | We would like to get rid of netdev->trans_start = jiffies; that about all net drivers have to use in their start_xmit() function, and use txq->trans_start instead. 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.
