2013-03-22rtnetlink: Remove passing of attributes into rtnl_doit functionsThomas Graf20-117/+47
With decnet converted, we can finally get rid of rta_buf and its computations around it. It also gets rid of the minimal header length verification since all message handlers do that explicitly anyway. Signed-off-by: Thomas Graf <tgraf@suug.ch> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2013-03-22decnet: Parse netlink attributes on our ownThomas Graf4-148/+160
decnet is the only subsystem left that is relying on the global netlink attribute buffer rta_buf. It's horrible design and we want to get rid of it. This converts all of decnet to do implicit attribute parsing. It also gets rid of the error prone struct dn_kern_rta. Yes, the fib_magic() stuff is not pretty. It's compiled tested but I need someone with appropriate hardware to test the patch since I don't have access to it.

2013-03-22Merge branch 'mv643xx_eth'David S. Miller9-239/+187
Florian Fainelli says: ==================== This patch converts the mv643xx_eth driver to use the mvmdio MDIO bus driver instead of rolling its own implementation. As a result, all users of this mv643xx_eth driver are converted to register an "orion-mdio" platform_device. The mvmdio driver is also updated to support an interrupt line which reports SMI error/completion, and to allow traditionnal platform device registration instead of just device tree. David, I think it makes sense for you to merge all of this, since we do not want the architecture files to be desynchronized from the mv643xx_eth to avoid runtime breakage. The potential for merge conflicts should be very small. ==================== Tested-by: Thomas Petazzoni <thomas.petazzoni@free-electrons.com> Tested-by: Jason Cooper <jason@lakedaemon.net> Acked-by: Jason Cooper <jason@lakedaemon.net> Signed-off-by: David S.

2013-03-22mv643xx_eth: convert to use the Marvell Orion MDIO driverFlorian Fainelli7-209/+84
This patch converts the Marvell MV643XX ethernet driver to use the Marvell Orion MDIO driver. As a result, PowerPC and ARM platforms registering the Marvell MV643XX ethernet driver are also updated to register a Marvell Orion MDIO driver. This driver voluntarily overlaps with the Marvell Ethernet shared registers because it will use a subset of this shared register (shared_base + 0x4 to shared_base + 0x84). The Ethernet driver is also updated to look up for a PHY device using the Orion MDIO bus driver. For ARM and PowerPC we register a single instance of the "mvmdio" driver in the system like it used to be done with the use of the "shared_smi" platform_data cookie on ARM. Note that it is safe to register the mvmdio driver only for the "ge00" instance of the driver because this "ge00" interface is guaranteed to always be explicitely registered by consumers of arch/arm/plat-orion/common.c and other instances (ge01, ge10 and ge11) were all pointing their shared_smi to ge00. For PowerPC the in-tree Device Tree Source files mention only one MV643XX ethernet MAC instance so the MDIO bus driver is registered only when id == 0.

This patch enhances the "mvmdio" to support a SMI error/done interrupt line which can be used along with a wait queue instead of doing busy-waiting on the registers.

This patch changes the mvmdio driver not to use device tree helper functions such as of_mdiobus_register() and of_iomap() so we can instantiate this driver using a classic platform_device approach. Use the device manager helper to ioremap() the base register cookie so we get automatic freeing upon error and removal. This change is harmless for Device Tree platforms because they will get the driver be registered the same way as it was before.

The socket inode number and cookie is reserved for future per-socket info retrieving. The per-protocol filtering is also reserved for future by requiring the sdiag_protocol to be zero. The file /proc/net/netlink doesn't provide enough information for dumping netlink sockets. It doesn't provide dst_group, dst_portid, groups above 32. v2: fix NETLINK_DIAG_MAX.

2013-03-21tcp: implement RFC5682 F-RTOYuchung Cheng3-26/+68
This patch implements F-RTO (foward RTO recovery): When the first retransmission after timeout is acknowledged, F-RTO sends new data instead of old data. If the next ACK acknowledges some never-retransmitted data, then the timeout was spurious and the congestion state is reverted. Otherwise if the next ACK selectively acknowledges the new data, then the timeout was genuine and the loss recovery continues. This idea applies to recurring timeouts as well. While F-RTO sends different data during timeout recovery, it does not (and should not) change the congestion control. The implementaion follows the three steps of SACK enhanced algorithm (section 3) in RFC5682. Step 1 is in tcp_enter_loss(). Step 2 and 3 are in tcp_process_loss(). The basic version is not supported because SACK enhanced version also works for non-SACK connections. The new implementation is functionally in parity with the old F-RTO implementation except the one case where it increases undo events: In addition to the RFC algorithm, a spurious timeout may be detected without sending data in step 2, as long as the SACK confirms not all the original data are dropped. When this happens, the sender will undo the cwnd and perhaps enter fast recovery instead. This additional check increases the F-RTO undo events by 5x compared to the prior implementation on Google Web servers, since the sender often does not have new data to send for HTTP. Note F-RTO may detect spurious timeout before Eifel with timestamps does so.

2013-03-21tcp: refactor F-RTOYuchung Cheng9-421/+10
The patch series refactor the F-RTO feature (RFC4138/5682). This is to simplify the loss recovery processing. Existing F-RTO was developed during the experimental stage (RFC4138) and has many experimental features. It takes a separate code path from the traditional timeout processing by overloading CA_Disorder instead of using CA_Loss state. This complicates CA_Disorder state handling because it's also used for handling dubious ACKs and undos. While the algorithm in the RFC does not change the congestion control, the implementation intercepts congestion control in various places (e.g., frto_cwnd in tcp_ack()). The new code implements newer F-RTO RFC5682 using CA_Loss processing path. F-RTO becomes a small extension in the timeout processing and interfaces with congestion control and Eifel undo modules. It lets congestion control (module) determines how many to send independently. F-RTO only chooses what to send in order to detect spurious retranmission. If timeout is found spurious it invokes existing Eifel undo algorithms like DSACK or TCP timestamp based detection. The first patch removes all F-RTO code except the sysctl_tcp_frto is left for the new implementation. Since CA_EVENT_FRTO is removed, TCP westwood now computes ssthresh on regular timeout CA_EVENT_LOSS event.

2013-03-21filter: add minimal BPF JIT image disassemblerDaniel Borkmann3-5/+220
This is a minimal stand-alone user space helper, that allows for debugging or verification of emitted BPF JIT images. This is in particular useful for emitted opcode debugging, since minor bugs in the JIT compiler can be fatal. The disassembler is architecture generic and uses libopcodes and libbfd. How to get to the disassembly, example: 1) `echo 2 > /proc/sys/net/core/bpf_jit_enable` 2) Load a BPF filter (e.g. `tcpdump -p -n -s 0 -i eth1 host 192.168.20.0/24`) 3) Run e.g. `bpf_jit_disasm -o` to disassemble the most recent JIT code output `bpf_jit_disasm -o` will display the related opcodes to a particular instruction as well.

Linville says: ==================== This is a big pull request for new features intended for the 3.10 stream... Regarding mac80211, Johannes says: "First, I merged mac80211/master to avoid some conflicts. This brings in a bunch of fixes you're already familiar with. For real -next material, I have a whole bunch of minstrel work, minstrel_ht from Felix and legacy minstrel from Thomas (Huehn). The other Thomas (Pedersen) did a number of changes in mesh to allow userspace peering management even when the mesh isn't secured. Stanislaw changes suspend/resume to always disconnect the networks. This is typically already done by network-manager so won't make a huge difference for most users, but fixes a number problems, particularly with USB drivers that can easily disconnect while suspended. Ilan has a small change to allow mac80211 drivers to differentiate remain-on-channel reasons, and Jouni extends nl80211 to allow fast roaming with full-MAC devices. I have a fairly large number of patches as well, many of them fairly simple cleanups, but also allowing split wiphy dumps and adding back the full wiphy information in nl80211, station entry change checking and more VHT work including VHT capability overrides (mostly for testing purposes)." And for iwlwifi, Johannes says: "Here, I also merged iwlwifi-fixes to avoid conflicts, and otherwise have various cleanups and improvements on the MVM driver, along with a few throughout the driver. Other than Bluetooth Coexistence from Emmanuel there's no over-arching theme, so listing them would pretty much reproduce the shortlog." Regarding NFC, Samuel says: "The 2 features we have with this one are: - An LLCP Service Name Lookup (SNL) netlink interface for querying LLCP service availability from user space. Along the way, Thierry also improved the existing SNL interface for aggregating SNL responses. - An initial LLCP socket options implementation, for setting the Receive Window (RW) and the Maximum Information Unit Extension (MIUX) per socket. This is need for the LLCP validation tests. We also have a microread MEI build failure here: I am not sending this one to 3.9 because the MEI bus code is not there yet, so it won't break for anyone else than me." And for ath6kl, Kalle says: "I added tracing support to ath6kl, along with a new Kconfig option. Now there's also a workaround to reset USB devices when the firmware upload fails, this happened when host was warm rebooted. There are also quite a few small fixes or cleanup." On top of all that, there is the usual bundle of driver updates with new features, new hardware support and the like mixed-in. The ath9k, b43, brcmfmac, mwifiex, rt2800, and wil6210 drivers are all well-represented, and a few other drivers are hit as well. I also pulled-in the wireless fixes tree in order to resolve some pending merge conflicts. Please let me know if there are problems! ==================== Signed-off-by: David S.

2013-03-20connector: Added coredumping event to the process connectorJesper Derehag4-1/+40
Process connector can now also detect coredumping events. Main aim of patch is get notified at start of coredumping, instead of having to wait for it to finish and then being notified through EXIT event. Could be used for instance by process-managers that want to get notified as soon as possible about process failures, and not necessarily beeing notified after coredump, which could be in the order of minutes depending on size of coredump, piping and so on.

2013-03-20gianfar: Refactor config coalescing calls for all queuesClaudiu Manoil3-6/+10
The only place where gfar_configure_coalescing is called with an actual bitmask (other than 0xff) is in gfar_poll (on the hot path). So make gfar_configure_coalescing() static for the buffer processing path, and export gfar_configure_coalescing_all() for the remaining cases that require to set coalescing for all the queues at once (on the slow path).

2013-03-20gianfar: Remove redundant programming of [rt]xic registersClaudiu Manoil1-12/+12
For Multi Q Multi Group (MQ_MG_MODE) mode, the Rx/Tx colescing registers [rt]xic are aliased with the [rt]xic0 registers (coalescing setting regs for Q0). This avoids programming twice in a row the coalescing registers for the Rx/Tx hw Q0. Signed-off-by: Claudiu Manoil <claudiu.manoil@freescale.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2013-03-20gianfar: Poll only active Rx queuesClaudiu Manoil2-10/+22
Split the napi budget fairly among the active queues only, instead of dividing it by the total number of Rx queues assigned to the given interrupt group. Use the h/w indication field RXFi in rstat (receive status register) to identify the active rx queues from the current interrupt group (i.e. receive event occured on ring i, if ring i is part of the current interrupt group). This indication field in rstat, RXFi i=0..7, allows us to find out on which queues of the same interrupt group do we have incomming traffic once we entered the polling routine for the given interrupt group. After servicing the ring i, the corresponding bit RXFi will be written with 1 to clear the active queue indication for that ring.
