2008-09-09ipv6: Fix OOPS in ip6_dst_lookup_tail().Neil Horman1-32/+32
This fixes kernel bugzilla 11469: "TUN with 1024 neighbours: ip6_dst_lookup_tail NULL crash" dst->neighbour is not necessarily hooked up at this point in the processing path, so blindly dereferencing it is the wrong thing to do. This NULL check exists in other similar paths and this case was just an oversight. Also fix the completely wrong and confusing indentation here while we're at it.

2008-09-09clockevents: remove WARN_ON which was used to gather informationThomas Gleixner1-10/+8
The issue of the endless reprogramming loop due to a too small min_delta_ns was fixed with the previous updates of the clock events code, but we had no information about the spread of this problem. I added a WARN_ON to get automated information via kerneloops.org and to get some direct reports, which allowed me to analyse the affected machines. The WARN_ON has served its purpose and would be annoying for a release kernel. Remove it and just keep the information about the increase of the min_delta_ns value.

2008-09-09lib: Correct printk %pF to work on all architecturesJames Bottomley8-11/+56
It was introduced by "vsprintf: add support for '%pS' and '%pF' pointer formats" in commit 0fe1ef24f7bd0020f29ffe287dfdb9ead33ca0b2. However, the current way its coded doesn't work on parisc64. For two reasons: 1) parisc isn't in the #ifdef and 2) parisc has a different format for function descriptors Make dereference_function_descriptor() more accommodating by allowing architecture overrides. I put the three overrides (for parisc64, ppc64 and ia64) in arch/kernel/module.c because that's where the kernel internal linker which knows how to deal with function descriptors sits.

When running a 31-bit ptrace, on either an s390 or s390x kernel, reads and writes into a padding area in struct user_regs_struct32 will result in a kernel panic. This is also known as CVE-2008-1514. Test case available here: http://sources.redhat.com/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi/~checkout~/tests/ptrace-tests/tests/user-area-padding.c?cvsroot=systemtap Steps to reproduce: 1) wget the above 2) gcc -o user-area-padding-31bit user-area-padding.c -Wall -ggdb2 -D_GNU_SOURCE -m31 3) ./user-area-padding-31bit <panic> Test status ----------- Without patch, both s390 and s390x kernels panic. With patch, the test case, as well as the gdb testsuite, pass without incident, padding area reads returning zero, writes ignored. Nb: original version returned -EINVAL on write attempts, which broke the gdb test and made the test case slightly unhappy, Jan Kratochvil suggested the change to return 0 on write attempts.

2008-09-09[Bluetooth] Reject L2CAP connections on an insecure ACL linkMarcel Holtmann4-5/+26
The Security Mode 4 of the Bluetooth 2.1 specification has strict authentication and encryption requirements. It is the initiators job to create a secure ACL link. However in case of malicious devices, the acceptor has to make sure that the ACL is encrypted before allowing any kind of L2CAP connection. The only exception here is the PSM 1 for the service discovery protocol, because that is allowed to run on an insecure ACL link. Previously it was enough to reject a L2CAP connection during the connection setup phase, but with Bluetooth 2.1 it is forbidden to do any L2CAP protocol exchange on an insecure link (except SDP). The new hci_conn_check_link_mode() function can be used to check the integrity of an ACL link. This functions also takes care of the cases where Security Mode 4 is disabled or one of the devices is based on an older specification. Signed-off-by: Marcel Holtmann <marcel@holtmann.org>
2008-09-09[Bluetooth] Enforce correct authentication requirementsMarcel Holtmann4-7/+24
With the introduction of Security Mode 4 and Simple Pairing from the Bluetooth 2.1 specification it became mandatory that the initiator requires authentication and encryption before any L2CAP channel can be established. The only exception here is PSM 1 for the service discovery protocol (SDP). It is meant to be used without any encryption since it contains only public information. This is how Bluetooth 2.0 and before handle connections on PSM 1. For Bluetooth 2.1 devices the pairing procedure differentiates between no bonding, general bonding and dedicated bonding. The L2CAP layer wrongly uses always general bonding when creating new connections, but it should not do this for SDP connections. In this case the authentication requirement should be no bonding and the just-works model should be used, but in case of non-SDP connection it is required to use general bonding. If the new connection requires man-in-the-middle (MITM) protection, it also first wrongly creates an unauthenticated link key and then later on requests an upgrade to an authenticated link key to provide full MITM protection. With Simple Pairing the link key generation is an expensive operation (compared to Bluetooth 2.0 and before) and doing this twice during a connection setup causes a noticeable delay when establishing a new connection. This should be avoided to not regress from the expected Bluetooth 2.0 connection times. The authentication requirements are known up-front and so enforce them. To fulfill these requirements the hci_connect() function has been extended with an authentication requirement parameter that will be stored inside the connection information and can be retrieved by userspace at any time. This allows the correct IO capabilities exchange and results in the expected behavior. Signed-off-by: Marcel Holtmann <marcel@holtmann.org>
2008-09-09[Bluetooth] Fix reference counting during ACL config stageMarcel Holtmann1-7/+4
The ACL config stage keeps holding a reference count on incoming connections when requesting the extended features. This results in keeping an ACL link up without any users. The problem here is that the Bluetooth specification doesn't define an ownership of the ACL link and thus it can happen that the implementation on the initiator side doesn't care about disconnecting unused links. In this case the acceptor needs to take care of this. Signed-off-by: Marcel Holtmann <marcel@holtmann.org>

2008-09-08NFS: Restore missing hunk in NFS mount option parserChuck Lever1-0/+6
Automounter maps can contain mount options valid for other NFS implementations but not for Linux. The Linux automounter uses the mount command's "-s" command line option ("s" for "sloppy") so that mount requests containing such options are not rejected. Commit f45663ce5fb30f76a3414ab3ac69f4dd320e760a attempted to address a known regression with text-based NFS mount option parsing. Unrecognized mount options would cause mount requests to fail, even if the "-s" option was used on the mount command line. Unfortunately, this commit was not complete as submitted. It adds a new mount option, "sloppy". But it is missing a hunk, so it now allows NFS mounts with unrecognized mount options, even if the "sloppy" option is not present. This could be a problem if a required critical mount option such as "sync" is misspelled, for example, and is considered a regression from 2.6.26. This patch restores the missing hunk. Now, the default behavior of text-based NFS mount options is as before: any unrecognized mount option will cause the mount to fail. Please include this in 2.6.27-rc.

2008-09-08bridge: don't allow setting hello time to zeroStephen Hemminger2-9/+25
Dushan Tcholich reports that on his system ksoftirqd can consume between %6 to %10 of cpu time, and cause ~200 context switches per second. He then correlated this with a report by bdupree@techfinesse.com: http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=119613299024398&w=2 and the culprit cause seems to be starting the bridge interface. In particular, when starting the bridge interface, his scripts are specifying a hello timer interval of "0". The bridge hello time can't be safely set to values less than 1 second, otherwise it is possible to end up with a runaway timer.

How to reproduce ? - create a network namespace - use tcp protocol and get timewait socket - exit the network namespace - after a moment (when the timewait socket is destroyed), the kernel panics. # BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000007 IP: [<ffffffff821e394d>] inet_twdr_do_twkill_work+0x6e/0xb8 PGD 119985067 PUD 11c5c0067 PMD 0 Oops: 0000 [1] SMP CPU 1 Modules linked in: ipv6 button battery ac loop dm_mod tg3 libphy ext3 jbd edd fan thermal processor thermal_sys sg sata_svw libata dock serverworks sd_mod scsi_mod ide_disk ide_core [last unloaded: freq_table] Pid: 0, comm: swapper Not tainted 2.6.27-rc2 #3 RIP: 0010:[<ffffffff821e394d>] [<ffffffff821e394d>] inet_twdr_do_twkill_work+0x6e/0xb8 RSP: 0018:ffff88011ff7fed0 EFLAGS: 00010246 RAX: ffffffffffffffff RBX: ffffffff82339420 RCX: ffff88011ff7ff30 RDX: 0000000000000001 RSI: ffff88011a4d03c0 RDI: ffff88011ac2fc00 RBP: ffffffff823392e0 R08: 0000000000000000 R09: ffff88002802a200 R10: ffff8800a5c4b000 R11: ffffffff823e4080 R12: ffff88011ac2fc00 R13: 0000000000000001 R14: 0000000000000001 R15: 0000000000000000 FS: 0000000041cbd940(0000) GS:ffff8800bff839c0(0000) knlGS:0000000000000000 CS: 0010 DS: 0018 ES: 0018 CR0: 000000008005003b CR2: 0000000000000007 CR3: 00000000bd87c000 CR4: 00000000000006e0 DR0: 0000000000000000 DR1: 0000000000000000 DR2: 0000000000000000 DR3: 0000000000000000 DR6: 00000000ffff0ff0 DR7: 0000000000000400 Process swapper (pid: 0, threadinfo ffff8800bff9e000, task ffff88011ff76690) Stack: ffffffff823392e0 0000000000000100 ffffffff821e3a3a 0000000000000008 0000000000000000 ffffffff821e3a61 ffff8800bff7c000 ffffffff8203c7e7 ffff88011ff7ff10 ffff88011ff7ff10 0000000000000021 ffffffff82351108 Call Trace: <IRQ> [<ffffffff821e3a3a>] ? inet_twdr_hangman+0x0/0x9e [<ffffffff821e3a61>] ? inet_twdr_hangman+0x27/0x9e [<ffffffff8203c7e7>] ? run_timer_softirq+0x12c/0x193 [<ffffffff820390d1>] ? __do_softirq+0x5e/0xcd [<ffffffff8200d08c>] ? call_softirq+0x1c/0x28 [<ffffffff8200e611>] ? do_softirq+0x2c/0x68 [<ffffffff8201a055>] ? smp_apic_timer_interrupt+0x8e/0xa9 [<ffffffff8200cad6>] ? apic_timer_interrupt+0x66/0x70 <EOI> [<ffffffff82011f4c>] ? default_idle+0x27/0x3b [<ffffffff8200abbd>] ? cpu_idle+0x5f/0x7d Code: e8 01 00 00 4c 89 e7 41 ff c5 e8 8d fd ff ff 49 8b 44 24 38 4c 89 e7 65 8b 14 25 24 00 00 00 89 d2 48 8b 80 e8 00 00 00 48 f7 d0 <48> 8b 04 d0 48 ff 40 58 e8 fc fc ff ff 48 89 df e8 c0 5f 04 00 RIP [<ffffffff821e394d>] inet_twdr_do_twkill_work+0x6e/0xb8 RSP <ffff88011ff7fed0> CR2: 0000000000000007 This patch provides a function to purge all timewait sockets related to a network namespace. The timewait sockets life cycle is not tied with the network namespace, that means the timewait sockets stay alive while the network namespace dies. The timewait sockets are for avoiding to receive a duplicate packet from the network, if the network namespace is freed, the network stack is removed, so no chance to receive any packets from the outside world. Furthermore, having a pending destruction timer on these sockets with a network namespace freed is not safe and will lead to an oops if the timer callback which try to access data belonging to the namespace like for example in: inet_twdr_do_twkill_work -> NET_INC_STATS_BH(twsk_net(tw), LINUX_MIB_TIMEWAITED); Purging the timewait sockets at the network namespace destruction will: 1) speed up memory freeing for the namespace 2) fix kernel panic on asynchronous timewait destruction Signed-off-by: Daniel Lezcano <dlezcano@fr.ibm.com> Acked-by: Denis V.

2008-09-08x86: disable static NOPLs on 32 bitsLinus Torvalds1-5/+8
On 32-bit, at least the generic nops are fairly reasonable, but the default nops for 64-bit really look pretty sad, and the P6 nops really do look better. So I would suggest perhaps moving the static P6 nop selection into the CONFIG_X86_64 thing. The alternative is to just get rid of that static nop selection, and just have two cases: 32-bit and 64-bit, and just pick obviously safe cases for them. Signed-off-by: H. Peter Anvin <hpa@zytor.com>

2008-09-08libata-sff: kill spurious WARN_ON() in ata_hsm_move()Tejun Heo1-5/+0
On HSM_ST_ERR, ata_hsm_move() triggers WARN_ON() if AC_ERR_DEV or AC_ERR_HSM is not set. PHY events may trigger HSM_ST_ERR with other error codes and, with or without it, there just isn't much reason to do WARN_ON() on it. Even if error code is not set there, core EH logic won't have any problem dealing with the error condition. OSDL bz#11065 reports this problem.

2008-09-08sata_nv: disable hardreset for genericTejun Heo1-18/+1
of them being unifying probing, hotplug and EH reset paths uniform. Previously, broken hardreset could go unnoticed as it wasn't used during probing but when something goes wrong or after hotplug the problem will surface and bite hard. OSDL bug 11195 reports that sata_nv generic flavor falls into this category. Hardreset itself succeeds but PHY stays offline after hardreset. I tried longer debounce timing but the result was the same. http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11195 So, it seems we'll have to drop hardreset from the generic flavor.

2008-09-08ahci, pata_marvell: play nicely togetherAlan Cox3-15/+59
I've been chasing Jeff about this for months. Jeff added the Marvell device identifiers to the ahci driver without making the AHCI driver handle the PATA port. This means a lot of users can't use current kernels and in most distro cases can't even install. This has been going on since March 2008 for the 6121 Marvell, and late 2007 for the 6145!!! This was all pointed out at the time and repeatedly ignored. Bugs assigned to Jeff about this are ignored also. To quote Jeff in email > "Just switch the order of 'ahci' and 'pata_marvell' in > /etc/modprobe.conf, then use Fedora's tools regenerate the initrd. > See? It's not rocket science, and the current configuration can be > easily made to work for Fedora users." (Which isn't trivial, isn't end user, shouldn't be needed, and as it usually breaks at install time is in fact impossible) To quote Jeff in August 2007 > " mv-ahci-pata > Marvell 6121/6141 PATA support. Needs fixing in the 'PATA controller > command' area before it is usable, and can go upstream." Only he add the ids anyway later and caused regressions, adding a further id in March causing more regresions. The actual fix for the moment is very simple. If the user has included the pata_marvell driver let it drive the ports. If they've only selected for SATA support give them the AHCI driver which will run the port a fraction faster. Allow the user to control this decision via ahci.marvell_enable as a module parameter so that distributions can ship 'it works' defaults and smarter users (or config tools) can then flip it over it desired.
