2008-10-26wireless: fix regression caused by regulatory config optionArjan van de Ven1-6/+5
The default for the regulatory compatibility option is wrong; if you picked the default you ended up with a non-functional wifi system (at least I did on Fedora 9 with iwl4965). I don't think even the October 2008 releases of the various distros has the new userland so clearly the default is wrong, and also we can't just go about deleting this in 2.6.29... Change the default to "y" and also adjust the config text a little to reflect this. This patch fixes regression #11859 With thanks to Johannes Berg for the diagnostics Signed-off-by: Arjan van de Ven <arjan@linux.intel.com> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

2008-10-23tcp: Restore ordering of TCP options for the sake of inter-operabilityIlpo Järvinen1-6/+17
This is not our bug! Sadly some devices cannot cope with the change of TCP option ordering which was a result of the recent rewrite of the option code (not that there was some particular reason steming from the rewrite for the reordering) though any ordering of TCP options is perfectly legal. Thus we restore the original ordering to allow interoperability with/through such broken devices and add some warning about this trap. Since the reordering just happened without any particular reason, this change shouldn't cost us anything. There are already couple of known failure reports (within close proximity of the last release), so the problem might be more wide-spread than a single device. And other reports which may be due to the same problem though the symptoms were less obvious. Analysis of one of the case revealed (with very high probability) that sack capability cannot be negotiated as the first option (SYN never got a response).

2008-10-23net: Fix disjunct computation of netdev featuresHerbert Xu3-69/+82
My change commit e2a6b85247aacc52d6ba0d9b37a99b8d1a3e0d83 net: Enable TSO if supported by at least one device didn't do what was intended because the netdev_compute_features function was designed for conjunctions. So what happened was that it would simply take the TSO status of the last constituent device. This patch extends it to support both conjunctions and disjunctions under the new name of netdev_increment_features. It also adds a new function netdev_fix_features which does the sanity checking that usually occurs upon registration. This ensures that the computation doesn't result in an illegal combination since this checking is absent when the change is initiated via ethtool. The two users of netdev_compute_features have been converted. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>

2008-10-23sctp: Fix to handle SHUTDOWN in SHUTDOWN-PENDING stateWei Yongjun1-1/+1
If SHUTDOWN is received in SHUTDOWN-PENDING state, enpoint should enter the SHUTDOWN-RECEIVED state and check the Cumulative TSN Ack field of the SHUTDOWN chunk (RFC 4960 Section 9.2). If the SHUTDOWN chunk can acknowledge all of the send DATA chunks, SHUTDOWN-ACK should be sent. But now endpoint just silently discarded the SHUTDOWN chunk. SHUTDOWN received in SHUTDOWN-PENDING state can happend when the last SACK is lost by network, or the SHUTDOWN chunk can acknowledge all of the received DATA chunks. The packet sequence(SACK lost) is like this: Endpoint A Endpoint B ULP (ESTABLISHED) (ESTABLISHED) <----------- DATA <--- shutdown Enter SHUTDOWN-PENDING state SACK ----lost----> SHUTDOWN(*1) ------------> <----------- SHUTDOWN-ACK (*1) silently discarded now.

If SHUTDOWN chunk is received Cumulative TSN Ack beyond the max tsn currently send, SHUTDOWN chunk be accepted and the association will be broken. New data is send, but after received SACK it will be drop because TSN in SACK is less than the Cumulative TSN, data will be retrans again and again even if correct SACK is received. The packet sequence is like this: Endpoint A Endpoint B ULP (ESTABLISHED) (ESTABLISHED) <----------- DATA (TSN=x-1) <----------- DATA (TSN=x) SHUTDOWN -----------> (Now Cumulative TSN=x+1000) (TSN=x+1000) <----------- DATA (TSN=x+1) SACK -----------> drop the SACK (TSN=x+1) <----------- DATA (TSN=x+1)(retrans) This patch fix this problem by terminating the association and respond to the sender with an ABORT.

2008-10-21tcp: should use number of sack blocks instead of -1Ilpo Järvinen1-1/+1
While looking for the recent "sack issue" I also read all eff_sacks usage that was played around by some relevant commit. I found out that there's another thing that is asking for a fix (unrelated to the "sack issue" though). This feature has probably very little significance in practice. Opposite direction timeout with bidirectional tcp comes to me as the most likely scenario though there might be other cases as well related to non-data segments we send (e.g., response to the opposite direction segment). Also some ACK losses or option space wasted for other purposes is necessary to prevent the earlier SACK feedback getting to the sender.

It is my intent to use them to replace the current functions in conv.c as well as the p9_create_* functions.

It should return poll_waddr[i] but it returnes poll_waddr (introduced by 571ffeaf). * p9_mux_poll_stop() doesn't handle PTR_ERR value.

2008-10-179p: move request management to client codeEric Van Hensbergen2-127/+161
The virtio transport uses a simplified request management system that I want to use for all transports. This patch adapts and moves the exisiting code for managing requests to the client common code. Later patches will apply these mechanisms to the other transports. Signed-off-by: Eric Van Hensbergen <ericvh@gmail.com>
2008-10-179p: eliminate callback complexityEric Van Hensbergen1-83/+66
The current trans_fd rpc mechanisms use a dynamic callback mechanism which introduces a lot of complexity which only accomodates a single special case. This patch removes much of that complexity in favor of a simple exception mechanism to deal with flushes. Signed-off-by: Eric Van Hensbergen <ericvh@gmail.com>
2008-10-179p: consolidate mux_rpc and request structureEric Van Hensbergen1-46/+22
Currently, trans_fd has two structures (p9_req and p9_mux-rpc) which contain mostly duplicate data. This patch consolidates these two structures and removes p9_mux_rpc. Signed-off-by: Eric Van Hensbergen <ericvh@gmail.com>
