2015-05-25ip: reject too-big defragmented DF-skb when forwardingFlorian Westphal1-7/+11
Send icmp pmtu error if we find that the largest fragment of df-skb exceeded the output path mtu. The ip output path will still catch this later on but we can avoid the forward/postrouting hook traversal by rejecting right away. This is what ipv6 already does.

2015-04-20ip_forward: Drop frames with attached skb->skSebastian Pöhn1-0/+3
Initial discussion was: [FYI] xfrm: Don't lookup sk_policy for timewait sockets Forwarded frames should not have a socket attached. Especially tw sockets will lead to panics later-on in the stack. This was observed with TPROXY assigning a tw socket and broken policy routing (misconfigured). As a result frame enters forwarding path instead of input. We cannot solve this in TPROXY as it cannot know that policy routing is broken. v2: Remove useless comment Signed-off-by: Sebastian Poehn <sebastian.poehn@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

2015-04-07netfilter: Pass socket pointer down through okfn().David Miller1-4/+4
On the output paths in particular, we have to sometimes deal with two socket contexts. First, and usually skb->sk, is the local socket that generated the frame. And second, is potentially the socket used to control a tunneling socket, such as one the encapsulates using UDP. We do not want to disassociate skb->sk when encapsulating in order to fix this, because that would break socket memory accounting. The most extreme case where this can cause huge problems is an AF_PACKET socket transmitting over a vxlan device. We hit code paths doing checks that assume they are dealing with an ipv4 socket, but are actually operating upon the AF_PACKET one. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2015-03-11xps: must clear sender_cpu before forwardingEric Dumazet1-0/+1
John reported that my previous commit added a regression on his router. This is because sender_cpu & napi_id share a common location, so get_xps_queue() can see garbage and perform an out of bound access. We need to make sure sender_cpu is cleared before doing the transmit, otherwise any NIC busy poll enabled (skb_mark_napi_id()) can trigger this bug.

2015-01-26ipv4: try to cache dst_entries which would cause a redirectHannes Frederic Sowa1-1/+2
Not caching dst_entries which cause redirects could be exploited by hosts on the same subnet, causing a severe DoS attack. This effect aggravated since commit f88649721268999 ("ipv4: fix dst race in sk_dst_get()"). Lookups causing redirects will be allocated with DST_NOCACHE set which will force dst_release to free them via RCU. Unfortunately waiting for RCU grace period just takes too long, we can end up with >1M dst_entries waiting to be released and the system will run OOM. rcuos threads cannot catch up under high softirq load. Attaching the flag to emit a redirect later on to the specific skb allows us to cache those dst_entries thus reducing the pressure on allocation and deallocation. This issue was discovered by Marcelo Leitner.

Doing the segmentation in the forward path has one major drawback: When using virtio, we may process gso udp packets coming from host network stack. In that case, netfilter POSTROUTING will see one packet with udp header followed by multiple ip fragments. Delay the segmentation and do it after POSTROUTING invocation to avoid this.

local_df means 'ignore DF bit if set', so if its set we're allowed to perform ip fragmentation. This wasn't noticed earlier because the output path also drops such skbs (and emits needed icmp error) and because netfilter ip defrag did not set local_df until couple of days ago. Only difference is that DF-packets-larger-than MTU now discarded earlier (f.e. we avoid pointless netfilter postrouting trip).

2014-02-13net: ip, ipv6: handle gso skbs in forwarding pathFlorian Westphal1-2/+69
Marcelo Ricardo Leitner reported problems when the forwarding link path has a lower mtu than the incoming one if the inbound interface supports GRO. Given: Host <mtu1500> R1 <mtu1200> R2 Host sends tcp stream which is routed via R1 and R2. R1 performs GRO. In this case, the kernel will fail to send ICMP fragmentation needed messages (or pkt too big for ipv6), as GSO packets currently bypass dstmtu checks in forward path. Instead, Linux tries to send out packets exceeding the mtu. When locking route MTU on Host (i.e., no ipv4 DF bit set), R1 does not fragment the packets when forwarding, and again tries to send out packets exceeding R1-R2 link mtu. This alters the forwarding dstmtu checks to take the individual gso segment lengths into account. For ipv6, we send out pkt too big error for gso if the individual segments are too big. For ipv4, we either send icmp fragmentation needed, or, if the DF bit is not set, perform software segmentation and let the output path create fragments when the packet is leaving the machine. It is not 100% correct as the error message will contain the headers of the GRO skb instead of the original/segmented one, but it seems to work fine in my (limited) tests. Eric Dumazet suggested to simply shrink mss via ->gso_size to avoid sofware segmentation. However it turns out that skb_segment() assumes skb nr_frags is related to mss size so we would BUG there. I don't want to mess with it considering Herbert and Eric disagree on what the correct behavior should be. Hannes Frederic Sowa notes that when we would shrink gso_size skb_segment would then also need to deal with the case where SKB_MAX_FRAGS would be exceeded. This uses sofware segmentation in the forward path when we hit ipv4 non-DF packets and the outgoing link mtu is too small. Its not perfect, but given the lack of bug reports wrt. GRO fwd being broken this is a rare case anyway. Also its not like this could not be improved later once the dust settles.

2014-01-13ipv4: introduce ip_dst_mtu_maybe_forward and protect forwarding path against ↵Hannes Frederic Sowa1-2/+5
pmtu spoofing While forwarding we should not use the protocol path mtu to calculate the mtu for a forwarded packet but instead use the interface mtu. We mark forwarded skbs in ip_forward with IPSKB_FORWARDED, which was introduced for multicast forwarding. But as it does not conflict with our usage in unicast code path it is perfect for reuse. I moved the functions ip_sk_accept_pmtu, ip_sk_use_pmtu and ip_skb_dst_mtu along with the new ip_dst_mtu_maybe_forward to net/ip.h to fix circular dependencies because of IPSKB_FORWARDED. Because someone might have written a software which does probe destinations manually and expects the kernel to honour those path mtus I introduced a new per-namespace "ip_forward_use_pmtu" knob so someone can disable this new behaviour. We also still use mtus which are locked on a route for forwarding. The reason for this change is, that path mtus information can be injected into the kernel via e.g. icmp_err protocol handler without verification of local sockets. As such, this could cause the IPv4 forwarding path to wrongfully emit fragmentation needed notifications or start to fragment packets along a path. Tunnel and ipsec output paths clear IPCB again, thus IPSKB_FORWARDED won't be set and further fragmentation logic will use the path mtu to determine the fragmentation size. They also recheck packet size with help of path mtu discovery and report appropriate errors.

We will use it to allow rt_gateway to contain address of directly connected host for the cases when DST_NOCACHE is used or when the NH exception caches per-destination route without DST_NOCACHE flag, i.e. when routes are not used for other destinations.

RFC 4293 defines ipIfStatsOutOctets (similar definition for ipSystemStatsOutOctets): The total number of octets in IP datagrams delivered to the lower layers for transmission. Octets from datagrams counted in ipIfStatsOutTransmits MUST be counted here. And ipIfStatsOutTransmits: The total number of IP datagrams that this entity supplied to the lower layers for transmission. This includes datagrams generated locally and those forwarded by this entity. Therefore, IPSTATS_MIB_OUTOCTETS must be incremented when incrementing IPSTATS_MIB_OUTFORWDATAGRAMS. IP_UPD_PO_STATS is not used since ipIfStatsOutRequests must not include forwarded datagrams: The total number of IP datagrams that local IP user-protocols (including ICMP) supplied to IP in requests for transmission.

2010-03-30include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking ↵Tejun Heo1-0/+1
implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being included when building most .c files. percpu.h includes slab.h which in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies. percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed. Prepare for this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those headers directly instead of assuming availability. As this conversion needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is used as the basis of conversion. http://userweb.kernel.org/~tj/misc/slabh-sweep.py The script does the followings. * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that only the necessary includes are there. ie. if only gfp is used, gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h. * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms to its surrounding. It's put in the include block which contains core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered - alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there doesn't seem to be any matching order. * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the file. The conversion was done in the following steps. 1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h and ~3000 slab.h inclusions. The script emitted errors for ~400 files. 2. Each error was manually checked. Some didn't need the inclusion, some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or embedding .c file was more appropriate for others. This step added inclusions to around 150 files. 3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits from #2 to make sure no file was left behind. 4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed. e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually. 5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell. Most gfp.h inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros. Each slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as necessary. 6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h. 7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures were fixed. CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq). * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config. * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig * ia64 SMP allmodconfig * s390 SMP allmodconfig * alpha SMP allmodconfig * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig 8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as a separate patch and serve as bisection point. Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step 6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch. If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of the specific arch.

2007-10-10[IPV4] IPSEC: Omit redirect for tunnelled packet.Masahide NAKAMURA1-1/+1
IPv4 IPsec tunnel gateway incorrectly sends redirect to sender if it is onlink host when network device the IPsec tunnelled packet is arrived is the same as the one the decapsulated packet is sent. With this patch, it omits to send the redirect when the forwarding skbuff carries secpath, since such skbuff should be assumed as a decapsulated packet from IPsec tunnel by own. Request for comments: Alternatively we'd have another way to change net/ipv4/route.c (__mkroute_input) to use RTCF_DOREDIRECT flag unless skbuff has no secpath. It is better than this patch at performance point of view because IPv4 redirect judgement is done at routing slow-path. However, it should be taken care of resource changes between SAD(XFRM states) and routing table. In other words, When IPv4 SAD is changed does the related routing entry go to its slow-path?

2007-04-25[NET]: Allow forwarding of ip_summed except CHECKSUM_COMPLETEHerbert Xu1-1/+1
Right now Xen has a horrible hack that lets it forward packets with partial checksums. One of the reasons that CHECKSUM_PARTIAL and CHECKSUM_COMPLETE were added is so that we can get rid of this hack (where it creates two extra bits in the skbuff to essentially mirror ip_summed without being destroyed by the forwarding code). I had forgotten that I've already gone through all the deivce drivers last time around to make sure that they're looking at ip_summed == CHECKSUM_PARTIAL rather than ip_summed != 0 on transmit. In any case, I've now done that again so it should definitely be safe. Unfortunately nobody has yet added any code to update CHECKSUM_COMPLETE values on forward so we I'm setting that to CHECKSUM_NONE. This should be safe to remove for bridging but I'd like to check that code path first. So here is the patch that lets us get rid of the hack by preserving ip_summed (mostly) on forwarded packets.

After Al Viro (finally) succeeded in removing the sched.h #include in module.h recently, it makes sense again to remove other superfluous sched.h includes. There are quite a lot of files which include it but don't actually need anything defined in there. Presumably these includes were once needed for macros that used to live in sched.h, but moved to other header files in the course of cleaning it up. To ease the pain, this time I did not fiddle with any header files and only removed #includes from .c-files, which tend to cause less trouble. Compile tested against 2.6.20-rc2 and 2.6.20-rc2-mm2 (with offsets) on alpha, arm, i386, ia64, mips, powerpc, and x86_64 with allnoconfig, defconfig, allmodconfig, and allyesconfig as well as a few randconfigs on x86_64 and all configs in arch/arm/configs on arm. I also checked that no new warnings were introduced by the patch (actually, some warnings are removed that were emitted by unnecessarily included header files).

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
