2012-08-14llc2: Fix silent failure of llc_station_init()Ben Hutchings1-17/+2
llc_station_init() creates and processes an event skb with no effect other than to change the state from DOWN to UP. Allocation failure is reported, but then ignored by its caller, llc2_init(). Remove this possibility by simply initialising the state as UP. Signed-off-by: Ben Hutchings <ben@decadent.org.uk> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>

2012-08-14ipv4: Cache local output routesYan, Zheng1-1/+0
Commit caacf05e5ad1abf causes big drop of UDP loop back performance. The cause of the regression is that we do not cache the local output routes. Each time we send a datagram from unconnected UDP socket, the kernel allocates a dst_entry and adds it to the rt_uncached_list. It creates lock contention on the rt_uncached_lock.

Without this patch, I can't get netconsole logs remotely over vlan. The reason is probably we don't handle vlan tags in either netpoll tx or rx path.

2012-08-14netpoll: take rcu_read_lock_bh() in netpoll_send_skb_on_dev()Amerigo Wang1-14/+17
This patch fixes several problems in the call path of netpoll_send_skb_on_dev(): 1. Disable IRQ's before calling netpoll_send_skb_on_dev(). 2. All the callees of netpoll_send_skb_on_dev() should use rcu_dereference_bh() to dereference ->npinfo. 3. Rename arp_reply() to netpoll_arp_reply(), the former is too generic. Cc: "David S.

2012-08-12af_packet: remove BUG statement in tpacket_destruct_skbdanborkmann@iogearbox.net1-1/+0
Here's a quote of the comment about the BUG macro from asm-generic/bug.h: Don't use BUG() or BUG_ON() unless there's really no way out; one example might be detecting data structure corruption in the middle of an operation that can't be backed out of. If the (sub)system can somehow continue operating, perhaps with reduced functionality, it's probably not BUG-worthy. If you're tempted to BUG(), think again: is completely giving up really the *only* solution? There are usually better options, where users don't need to reboot ASAP and can mostly shut down cleanly. In our case, the status flag of a ring buffer slot is managed from both sides, the kernel space and the user space. This means that even though the kernel side might work as expected, the user space screws up and changes this flag right between the send(2) is triggered when the flag is changed to TP_STATUS_SENDING and a given skb is destructed after some time. Then, this will hit the BUG macro. As David suggested, the best solution is to simply remove this statement since it cannot be used for kernel side internal consistency checks. I've tested it and the system still behaves /stable/ in this case, so in accordance with the above comment, we should rather remove it.

2012-08-08sched: add missing group change to qfq_change_classPaolo Valente1-26/+69
[Resending again, as the text was corrupted by the email client] To speed up operations, QFQ internally divides classes into groups. Which group a class belongs to depends on the ratio between the maximum packet length and the weight of the class. Unfortunately the function qfq_change_class lacks the steps for changing the group of a class when the ratio max_pkt_len/weight of the class changes. For example, when the last of the following three commands is executed, the group of class 1:1 is not correctly changed: tc disc add dev XXX root handle 1: qfq tc class add dev XXX parent 1: qfq classid 1:1 weight 1 tc class change dev XXX parent 1: classid 1:1 qfq weight 4 Not changing the group of a class does not affect the long-term bandwidth guaranteed to the class, as the latter is independent of the maximum packet length, and correctly changes (only) if the weight of the class changes. In contrast, if the group of the class is not updated, the class is still guaranteed the short-term bandwidth and packet delay related to its old group, instead of the guarantees that it should receive according to its new weight and/or maximum packet length. This may also break service guarantees for other classes. This patch adds the missing operations. Signed-off-by: Paolo Valente <paolo.valente@unimore.it> Signed-off-by: David S.

2012-08-06cfg80211: process pending events when unregistering net deviceDaniel Drake3-1/+7
libertas currently calls cfg80211_disconnected() when it is being brought down. This causes an event to be allocated, but since the wdev is already removed from the rdev by the time that the event processing work executes, the event is never processed or freed. http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel.wireless.general/95666 Fix this leak, and other possible situations, by processing the event queue when a device is being unregistered.

gact_rand array is accessed by gact->tcfg_ptype whose value is assumed to less than MAX_RAND, but any range checks are not performed. So add a check in tcf_gact_init().

2012-08-02cfg80211: add channel flag to prohibit OFDM operationSeth Forshee1-0/+2
Currently the only way for wireless drivers to tell whether or not OFDM is allowed on the current channel is to check the regulatory information. However, this requires hodling cfg80211_mutex, which is not visible to the drivers. Other regulatory restrictions are provided as flags in the channel definition, so let's do similarly with OFDM. This patch adds a new flag, IEEE80211_CHAN_NO_OFDM, to tell drivers that OFDM on a channel is not allowed. This flag is set on any channels for which regulatory indicates that OFDM is prohibited.

2012-08-02Fix unexpected SA hard expiration after changing dateFan Du1-4/+17
After SA is setup, one timer is armed to detect soft/hard expiration, however the timer handler uses xtime to do the math. This makes hard expiration occurs first before soft expiration after setting new date with big interval. As a result new child SA is deleted before rekeying the new one.

2012-08-02tcp: Apply device TSO segment limit earlierBen Hutchings4-11/+18
Cache the device gso_max_segs in sock::sk_gso_max_segs and use it to limit the size of TSO skbs. This avoids the need to fall back to software GSO for local TCP senders. Signed-off-by: Ben Hutchings <bhutchings@solarflare.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2012-08-02net: Allow driver to limit number of GSO segments per skbBen Hutchings1-0/+4
A peer (or local user) may cause TCP to use a nominal MSS of as little as 88 (actual MSS of 76 with timestamps). Given that we have a sufficiently prodigious local sender and the peer ACKs quickly enough, it is nevertheless possible to grow the window for such a connection to the point that we will try to send just under 64K at once. This results in a single skb that expands to 861 segments. In some drivers with TSO support, such an skb will require hundreds of DMA descriptors; a substantial fraction of a TX ring or even more than a full ring. The TX queue selected for the skb may stall and trigger the TX watchdog repeatedly (since the problem skb will be retried after the TX reset). This particularly affects sfc, for which the issue is designated as CVE-2012-3412. Therefore: 1. Add the field net_device::gso_max_segs holding the device-specific limit. 2. In netif_skb_features(), if the number of segments is too high then mask out GSO features to force fall back to software GSO.

2012-08-01mac80211: clear timer bits when disconnectingJohannes Berg2-0/+4
There's a corner case that can happen when we suspend with a timer running, then resume and disconnect. If we connect again, suspend and resume we might start timers that shouldn't be running. Reset the timer flags to avoid this. This affects both mesh and managed modes. Signed-off-by: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@intel.com>
