This patch adds a new sysctl option (disabled by default) which controls whether this option should be sent even with unicast NAs. The need for this arose because certain routers expect the TLLAO in some situations even as a response to unicast NS packets. Moreover, RFC 2461 recommends sending this to avoid a race condition (section 4.4, Target link-layer address) Signed-off-by: Cosmin Ratiu <cratiu@ixiacom.com> Signed-off-by: Octavian Purdila <opurdila@ixiacom.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

2009-10-07ethtool: Add reset operationBen Hutchings1-0/+23
After updating firmware stored in flash, users may wish to reset the relevant hardware and start the new firmware immediately. This should not be completely automatic as it may be disruptive. A selective reset may also be useful for debugging or diagnostics. This adds a separate reset operation which takes flags indicating the components to be reset. Drivers are allowed to reset only a subset of those requested, and must indicate the actual subset. This allows the use of generic component masks and some future expansion.

2009-10-07ipv6 sit: 6rd (IPv6 Rapid Deployment) Support.YOSHIFUJI Hideaki / 吉藤英明2-8/+135
IPv6 Rapid Deployment (6rd; draft-ietf-softwire-ipv6-6rd) builds upon mechanisms of 6to4 (RFC3056) to enable a service provider to rapidly deploy IPv6 unicast service to IPv4 sites to which it provides customer premise equipment. Like 6to4, it utilizes stateless IPv6 in IPv4 encapsulation in order to transit IPv4-only network infrastructure. Unlike 6to4, a 6rd service provider uses an IPv6 prefix of its own in place of the fixed 6to4 prefix. With this option enabled, the SIT driver offers 6rd functionality by providing additional ioctl API to configure the IPv6 Prefix for in stead of static 2002::/16 for 6to4.

2009-10-07add vif using local interface index instead of IPIlia K1-1/+11
When routing daemon wants to enable forwarding of multicast traffic it performs something like: struct vifctl vc = { .vifc_vifi = 1, .vifc_flags = 0, .vifc_threshold = 1, .vifc_rate_limit = 0, .vifc_lcl_addr = ip, /* <--- ip address of physical interface, e.g. eth0 */ .vifc_rmt_addr.s_addr = htonl(INADDR_ANY), }; setsockopt(fd, IPPROTO_IP, MRT_ADD_VIF, &vc, sizeof(vc)); This leads (in the kernel) to calling vif_add() function call which search the (physical) device using assigned IP address: dev = ip_dev_find(net, vifc->vifc_lcl_addr.s_addr); The current API (struct vifctl) does not allow to specify an interface other way than using it's IP, and if there are more than a single interface with specified IP only the first one will be found. The attached patch (against allows to specify an interface by its index, instead of IP address: struct vifctl vc = { .vifc_vifi = 1, .vifc_flags = VIFF_USE_IFINDEX, /* NEW */ .vifc_threshold = 1, .vifc_rate_limit = 0, .vifc_lcl_ifindex = if_nametoindex("eth0"), /* NEW */ .vifc_rmt_addr.s_addr = htonl(INADDR_ANY), }; setsockopt(fd, IPPROTO_IP, MRT_ADD_VIF, &vc, sizeof(vc)); Signed-off-by: Ilia K. <mail4ilia@gmail.com> === modified file 'include/linux/mroute.h' Signed-off-by: David S.

2009-10-05net: export device speed and duplex via sysfsAndy Gospodarek1-0/+40
This patch exports the link-speed (in Mbps) and duplex of an interface via sysfs. This eliminates the need to use ethtool just to check the link-speed. Not requiring 'ethtool' and not relying on the SIOCETHTOOL ioctl should be helpful in an embedded environment where space is at a premium as well. NOTE: This patch also intentionally allows non-root users to check the link speed and duplex -- something not possible with ethtool. Here's some sample output: # cat /sys/class/net/eth0/speed 100 # cat /sys/class/net/eth0/duplex half # ethtool eth0 Settings for eth0: Supported ports: [ TP ] Supported link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full 100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full 1000baseT/Half 1000baseT/Full Supports auto-negotiation: Yes Advertised link modes: Not reported Advertised auto-negotiation: No Speed: 100Mb/s Duplex: Half Port: Twisted Pair PHYAD: 1 Transceiver: internal Auto-negotiation: off Supports Wake-on: g Wake-on: g Current message level: 0x000000ff (255) Link detected: yes Signed-off-by: David S.

2009-10-05af_packet: add interframe drop cmsg (v6)Neil Horman1-0/+33
Add Ancilliary data to better represent loss information I've had a few requests recently to provide more detail regarding frame loss during an AF_PACKET packet capture session. Specifically the requestors want to see where in a packet sequence frames were lost, i.e. they want to see that 40 frames were lost between frames 302 and 303 in a packet capture file. In order to do this we need: 1) The kernel to export this data to user space 2) The applications to make use of it This patch addresses item (1). It does this by doing the following: A) Anytime we drop a frame for which we would increment po->stats.tp_drops, we also no increment a stats called po->stats.tp_gap. B) Every time we successfully enqueue a frame to sk_receive_queue, we record the value of po->stats.tp_gap in skb->mark. skb->cb would nominally be the place to record this, but since all the space there is used up, we're overloading skb->mark. Its safe to do since any enqueued packet is guaranteed to be unshared at this point, and skb->mark isn't used for anything else in the rx path to the application. After we record tp_gap in the skb, we zero po->stats.tp_gap. This allows us to keep a counter of the number of frames lost between any two enqueued packets C) When the application goes to dequeue a frame from the packet socket, we look at skb->mark for that frame. If it is non-zero, we add a cmsg chunk to the msghdr of level SOL_PACKET and type PACKET_GAPDATA. Its a 32 bit integer that represents the number of frames lost between this packet and the last previous frame received. Note there is a chance that if there is frame loss after a receive, and then the socket is closed, some gap data might be lost. This is covered by the use of the PACKET_AUXDATA socket option, which gives total loss data. With a bit of math, the final gap can be determined that way. I've tested this patch myself, and it works well.

2009-10-04pktgen: Fix multiqueue handlingEric Dumazet1-1/+1
It is not currently possible to instruct pktgen to use one selected tx queue. When Robert added multiqueue support in commit 45b270f8, he added an interval (queue_map_min, queue_map_max), and his code doesnt take into account the case of min = max, to select one tx queue exactly. I suspect a high performance setup on a eight txqueue device wants to use exactly eight cpus, and assign one tx queue to each sender. This patchs makes pktgen select the right tx queue, not the first one. Also updates Documentation to reflect Robert changes.

2009-10-02net: splice() from tcp to pipe should take into account O_NONBLOCKEric Dumazet1-1/+1
tcp_splice_read() doesnt take into account socket's O_NONBLOCK flag Before this patch : splice(socket,0,pipe,0,128*1024,SPLICE_F_MOVE); causes a random endless block (if pipe is full) and splice(socket,0,pipe,0,128*1024,SPLICE_F_MOVE | SPLICE_F_NONBLOCK); will return 0 immediately if the TCP buffer is empty. User application has no way to instruct splice() that socket should be in blocking mode but pipe in nonblock more. Many projects cannot use splice(tcp -> pipe) because of this flaw. http://git.samba.org/?p=samba.git;a=history;f=source3/lib/recvfile.c;h=ea0159642137390a0f7e57a123684e6e63e47581;hb=HEAD http://lkml.indiana.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0807.2/0687.html Linus introduced SPLICE_F_NONBLOCK in commit 29e350944fdc2dfca102500790d8ad6d6ff4f69d (splice: add SPLICE_F_NONBLOCK flag ) It doesn't make the splice itself necessarily nonblocking (because the actual file descriptors that are spliced from/to may block unless they have the O_NONBLOCK flag set), but it makes the splice pipe operations nonblocking. Linus intention was clear : let SPLICE_F_NONBLOCK control the splice pipe mode only This patch instruct tcp_splice_read() to use the underlying file O_NONBLOCK flag, as other socket operations do. Users will then call : splice(socket,0,pipe,0,128*1024,SPLICE_F_MOVE | SPLICE_F_NONBLOCK ); to block on data coming from socket (if file is in blocking mode), and not block on pipe output (to avoid deadlock) First version of this patch was submitted by Octavian Purdila Reported-by: Volker Lendecke <vl@samba.org> Reported-by: Jason Gunthorpe <jgunthorpe@obsidianresearch.com> Signed-off-by: Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Octavian Purdila <opurdila@ixiacom.com> Acked-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org> Acked-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

2009-10-01IPv4 TCP fails to send window scale option when window scale is zeroOri Finkelman1-5/+6
Acknowledge TCP window scale support by inserting the proper option in SYN/ACK and SYN headers even if our window scale is zero. This fixes the following observed behavior: 1. Client sends a SYN with TCP window scaling option and non zero window scale value to a Linux box. 2. Linux box notes large receive window from client. 3. Linux decides on a zero value of window scale for its part. 4. Due to compare against requested window scale size option, Linux does not to send windows scale TCP option header on SYN/ACK at all. With the following result: Client box thinks TCP window scaling is not supported, since SYN/ACK had no TCP window scale option, while Linux thinks that TCP window scaling is supported (and scale might be non zero), since SYN had TCP window scale option and we have a mismatched idea between the client and server regarding window sizes. Probably it also fixes up the following bug (not observed in practice): 1. Linux box opens TCP connection to some server. 2. Linux decides on zero value of window scale. 3. Due to compare against computed window scale size option, Linux does not to set windows scale TCP option header on SYN. With the expected result that the server OS does not use window scale option due to not receiving such an option in the SYN headers, leading to suboptimal performance.

Effect is that tcpdump on real dev can show strange timings, since it gets rx timestamps too late (ie at skb dequeueing time, not at skb queueing time) 14:47:26.986871 IP > icmp 64: echo request seq 1 14:47:26.986786 IP > icmp 64: echo reply seq 1 14:47:27.986888 IP > icmp 64: echo request seq 2 14:47:27.986781 IP > icmp 64: echo reply seq 2 14:47:28.986896 IP > icmp 64: echo request seq 3 14:47:28.986780 IP > icmp 64: echo reply seq 3 Signed-off-by: Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

When requesting all prl entries (kprl.addr == INADDR_ANY) and there are more prl entries than there is space passed from userspace, the existing code would always copy cmax+1 entries, which is more than can be handled. This patch makes the kernel copy only exactly cmax entries. Signed-off-by: Sascha Hlusiak <contact@saschahlusiak.de> Acked-By: Fred L. Templin <Fred.L.Templin@boeing.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

2009-09-30net: Fix sock_wfree() raceEric Dumazet1-7/+12
Commit 2b85a34e911bf483c27cfdd124aeb1605145dc80 (net: No more expensive sock_hold()/sock_put() on each tx) opens a window in sock_wfree() where another cpu might free the socket we are working on. A fix is to call sk->sk_write_space(sk) while still holding a reference on sk. Reported-by: Jike Song <albcamus@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

2009-09-29mac80211: Fix [re]association power saving issue on AP sideIgor Perminov1-1/+4
Consider the following step-by step: 1. A STA authenticates and associates with the AP and exchanges traffic. 2. The STA reports to the AP that it is going to PS state. 3. Some time later the STA device goes to the stand-by mode (not only its wi-fi card, but the device itself) and drops the association state without sending a disassociation frame. 4. The STA device wakes up and begins authentication with an Auth frame as it hasn't been authenticated/associated previously. At the step 4 the AP "remembers" the STA and considers it is still in the PS state, so the AP buffers frames, which it has to send to the STA. But the STA isn't actually in the PS state and so it neither checks TIM bits nor reports to the AP that it isn't power saving. Because of that authentication/[re]association fails. To fix authentication/[re]association stage of this issue, Auth, Assoc Resp and Reassoc Resp frames are transmitted disregarding of STA's power saving state. N.B. This patch doesn't fix further data frame exchange after authentication/[re]association. A patch in hostapd is required to fix that.

2009-09-28wext: add back wireless/ dir in sysfs for cfg80211 interfacesJohannes Berg2-8/+6
The move away from having drivers assign wireless handlers, in favour of making cfg80211 assign them, broke the sysfs registration (the wireless/ dir went missing) because the handlers are now assigned only after registration, which is too late. Fix this by special-casing cfg80211-based devices, all of which are required to have an ieee80211_ptr, in the sysfs code, and also using get_wireless_stats() to have the same values reported as in procfs.

2009-09-28wext: Add bound checks for copy_from_userArjan van de Ven1-3/+6
The wireless extensions have a copy_from_user to a local stack array "essid", but both me and gcc have failed to find where the bounds for this copy are located in the code. This patch adds some basic sanity checks for the copy length to make sure that we don't overflow the stack buffer.

2009-09-28cfg80211: always get BSSJohannes Berg1-3/+2
Multiple problems were reported due to interaction between wpa_supplicant and the wext compat code in cfg80211, which appear to be due to it not getting any bss pointer here when wpa_supplicant sets all parameters -- do that now. We should still get the bss after doing an extra scan, but that appears to increase the time we need for connecting enough to sometimes cause timeouts.

2009-09-28net: Add explicit bound checks in net/socket.cArjan van de Ven1-1/+6
The sys_socketcall() function has a very clever system for the copy size of its arguments. Unfortunately, gcc cannot deal with this in terms of proving that the copy_from_user() is then always in bounds. This is the last (well 9th of this series, but last in the kernel) such case around. With this patch, we can turn on code to make having the boundary provably right for the whole kernel, and detect introduction of new security accidents of this type early on.
