2011-09-15net: copy userspace buffers on device forwardingMichael S. Tsirkin2-5/+25
dev_forward_skb loops an skb back into host networking stack which might hang on the memory indefinitely. In particular, this can happen in macvtap in bridged mode. Copy the userspace fragments to avoid blocking the sender in that case. As this patch makes skb_copy_ubufs extern now, I also added some documentation and made it clear the SKBTX_DEV_ZEROCOPY flag automatically instead of doing it in all callers. This can be made into a separate patch if people feel it's worth it. Signed-off-by: Michael S. Tsirkin <mst@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2011-09-15net: Make flow cache namespace-awaredpward1-1/+4
flow_cache_lookup will return a cached object (or null pointer) that the resolver (i.e. xfrm_policy_lookup) previously found for another namespace using the same key/family/dir. Instead, make the namespace part of what identifies entries in the cache. As before, flow_entry_valid will return 0 for entries where the namespace has been deleted, and they will be removed from the cache the next time flow_cache_gc_task is run.

2011-08-24arp: fix rcu lockdep splat in arp_process()Eric Dumazet1-2/+6
Dave Jones reported a lockdep splat triggered by an arp_process() call from parp_redo(). Commit faa9dcf793be (arp: RCU changes) is the origin of the bug, since it assumed arp_process() was called under rcu_read_lock(), which is not true in this particular path. Instead of adding rcu_read_lock() in parp_redo(), I chose to add it in neigh_proxy_process() to take care of IPv6 side too. =================================================== [ INFO: suspicious rcu_dereference_check() usage. ] --------------------------------------------------- include/linux/inetdevice.h:209 invoked rcu_dereference_check() without protection! other info that might help us debug this: rcu_scheduler_active = 1, debug_locks = 0 4 locks held by setfiles/2123: #0: (&sb->s_type->i_mutex_key#13){+.+.+.}, at: [<ffffffff8114cbc4>] walk_component+0x1ef/0x3e8 #1: (&isec->lock){+.+.+.}, at: [<ffffffff81204bca>] inode_doinit_with_dentry+0x3f/0x41f #2: (&tbl->proxy_timer){+.-...}, at: [<ffffffff8106a803>] run_timer_softirq+0x157/0x372 #3: (class){+.-...}, at: [<ffffffff8141f256>] neigh_proxy_process +0x36/0x103 stack backtrace: Pid: 2123, comm: setfiles Tainted: G W 3.1.0-0.rc2.git7.2.fc16.x86_64 #1 Call Trace: <IRQ> [<ffffffff8108ca23>] lockdep_rcu_dereference+0xa7/0xaf [<ffffffff8146a0b7>] __in_dev_get_rcu+0x55/0x5d [<ffffffff8146a751>] arp_process+0x25/0x4d7 [<ffffffff8146ac11>] parp_redo+0xe/0x10 [<ffffffff8141f2ba>] neigh_proxy_process+0x9a/0x103 [<ffffffff8106a8c4>] run_timer_softirq+0x218/0x372 [<ffffffff8106a803>] ? run_timer_softirq+0x157/0x372 [<ffffffff8141f220>] ? neigh_stat_seq_open+0x41/0x41 [<ffffffff8108f2f0>] ? mark_held_locks+0x6d/0x95 [<ffffffff81062bb6>] __do_softirq+0x112/0x25a [<ffffffff8150d27c>] call_softirq+0x1c/0x30 [<ffffffff81010bf5>] do_softirq+0x4b/0xa2 [<ffffffff81062f65>] irq_exit+0x5d/0xcf [<ffffffff8150dc11>] smp_apic_timer_interrupt+0x7c/0x8a [<ffffffff8150baf3>] apic_timer_interrupt+0x73/0x80 <EOI> [<ffffffff8108f439>] ? trace_hardirqs_on_caller+0x121/0x158 [<ffffffff814fc285>] ? __slab_free+0x30/0x24c [<ffffffff814fc283>] ? __slab_free+0x2e/0x24c [<ffffffff81204e74>] ? inode_doinit_with_dentry+0x2e9/0x41f [<ffffffff81204e74>] ? inode_doinit_with_dentry+0x2e9/0x41f [<ffffffff81204e74>] ? inode_doinit_with_dentry+0x2e9/0x41f [<ffffffff81130cb0>] kfree+0x108/0x131 [<ffffffff81204e74>] inode_doinit_with_dentry+0x2e9/0x41f [<ffffffff81204fc6>] selinux_d_instantiate+0x1c/0x1e [<ffffffff81200f4f>] security_d_instantiate+0x21/0x23 [<ffffffff81154625>] d_instantiate+0x5c/0x61 [<ffffffff811563ca>] d_splice_alias+0xbc/0xd2 [<ffffffff811b17ff>] ext4_lookup+0xba/0xeb [<ffffffff8114bf1e>] d_alloc_and_lookup+0x45/0x6b [<ffffffff8114cbea>] walk_component+0x215/0x3e8 [<ffffffff8114cdf8>] lookup_last+0x3b/0x3d [<ffffffff8114daf3>] path_lookupat+0x82/0x2af [<ffffffff8110fc53>] ? might_fault+0xa5/0xac [<ffffffff8110fc0a>] ? might_fault+0x5c/0xac [<ffffffff8114c564>] ? getname_flags+0x31/0x1ca [<ffffffff8114dd48>] do_path_lookup+0x28/0x97 [<ffffffff8114df2c>] user_path_at+0x59/0x96 [<ffffffff811467ad>] ? cp_new_stat+0xf7/0x10d [<ffffffff811469a6>] vfs_fstatat+0x44/0x6e [<ffffffff811469ee>] vfs_lstat+0x1e/0x20 [<ffffffff81146b3d>] sys_newlstat+0x1a/0x33 [<ffffffff8108f439>] ? trace_hardirqs_on_caller+0x121/0x158 [<ffffffff812535fe>] ? trace_hardirqs_on_thunk+0x3a/0x3f [<ffffffff8150af82>] system_call_fastpath+0x16/0x1b Reported-by: Dave Jones <davej@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

2011-08-06net: Compute protocol sequence numbers and fragment IDs using MD5.David S. Miller2-1/+185
Computers have become a lot faster since we compromised on the partial MD4 hash which we use currently for performance reasons. MD5 is a much safer choice, and is inline with both RFC1948 and other ISS generators (OpenBSD, Solaris, etc.) Furthermore, only having 24-bits of the sequence number be truly unpredictable is a very serious limitation. So the periodic regeneration and 8-bit counter have been removed. We compute and use a full 32-bit sequence number. For ipv6, DCCP was found to use a 32-bit truncated initial sequence number (it needs 43-bits) and that is fixed here as well.

2011-07-27net: add IFF_SKB_TX_SHARED flag to priv_flagsNeil Horman1-3/+5
Pktgen attempts to transmit shared skbs to net devices, which can't be used by some drivers as they keep state information in skbs. This patch adds a flag marking drivers as being able to handle shared skbs in their tx path. Drivers are defaulted to being unable to do so, but calling ether_setup enables this flag, as 90% of the drivers calling ether_setup touch real hardware and can handle shared skbs. A subsequent patch will audit drivers to ensure that the flag is set properly Signed-off-by: Neil Horman <nhorman@tuxdriver.com> Reported-by: Jiri Pirko <jpirko@redhat.com> CC: Robert Olsson <robert.olsson@its.uu.se> CC: Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com> CC: Alexey Dobriyan <adobriyan@gmail.com> CC: David S.

This patch adds userspace buffers support in skb shared info. A new struct skb_ubuf_info is needed to maintain the userspace buffers argument and index, a callback is used to notify userspace to release the buffers once lower device has done DMA (Last reference to that skb has gone). If there is any userspace apps to reference these userspace buffers, then these userspaces buffers will be copied into kernel. This way we can prevent userspace apps from holding these userspace buffers too long. Use destructor_arg to point to the userspace buffer info; a new tx flags SKBTX_DEV_ZEROCOPY is added for zero-copy buffer check. Signed-off-by: Shirley Ma <xma@...ibm.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

2011-07-01ipv6: Don't put artificial limit on routing table size.David S. Miller1-2/+4
IPV6, unlike IPV4, doesn't have a routing cache. Routing table entries, as well as clones made in response to route lookup requests, all live in the same table. And all of these things are together collected in the destination cache table for ipv6. This means that routing table entries count against the garbage collection limits, even though such entries cannot ever be reclaimed and are added explicitly by the administrator (rather than being created in response to lookups). Therefore it makes no sense to count ipv6 routing table entries against the GC limits. Add a DST_NOCOUNT destination cache entry flag, and skip the counting if it is set. Use this flag bit in ipv6 when adding routing table entries. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2011-07-01rtnl: provide link dump consistency infoThomas Graf3-0/+15
This patch adds a change sequence counter to each net namespace which is bumped whenever a netdevice is added or removed from the list. If such a change occurred while a link dump took place, the dump will have the NLM_F_DUMP_INTR flag set in the first message which has been interrupted and in all subsequent messages of the same dump. Note that links may still be modified or renamed while a dump is taking place but we can guarantee for userspace to receive a complete list of links and not miss any. Testing: I have added 500 VLAN netdevices to make sure the dump is split over multiple messages. Then while continuously dumping links in one process I also continuously deleted and re-added a dummy netdevice in another process. Multiple dumps per seconds have had the NLM_F_DUMP_INTR flag set. I guess we can wait for Johannes patch to hit net-next via the wireless tree. I just wanted to give this some testing right away.

2011-06-13net: export time stamp utility function for Ethernet MAC driversRichard Cochran1-0/+1
The network stack provides the function, skb_clone_tx_timestamp(). Ethernet MAC drivers can call this via the transmit time stamping hook, skb_tx_timestamp(). This commit exports the clone function so that drivers using it can be compiled as modules. Signed-off-by: Richard Cochran <richard.cochran@omicron.at> Signed-off-by: David S.

2011-06-12Delay struct net freeing while there's a sysfs instance refering to itAl Viro2-16/+19
* new refcount in struct net, controlling actual freeing of the memory * new method in kobj_ns_type_operations (->drop_ns()) * ->current_ns() semantics change - it's supposed to be followed by corresponding ->drop_ns(). For struct net in case of CONFIG_NET_NS it bumps the new refcount; net_drop_ns() decrements it and calls net_free() if the last reference has been dropped. Method renamed to ->grab_current_ns(). * old net_free() callers call net_drop_ns() instead. * sysfs_exit_ns() is gone, along with a large part of callchain leading to it; now that the references stored in ->ns[...] stay valid we do not need to hunt them down and replace them with NULL. That fixes problems in sysfs_lookup() and sysfs_readdir(), along with getting rid of sb->s_instances abuse. Note that struct net *shutdown* logics has not changed - net_cleanup() is called exactly when it used to be called. The only thing postponed by having a sysfs instance refering to that struct net is actual freeing of memory occupied by struct net. Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>
