2014-09-05net: Add function for parsing the header length out of linear ethernet framesAlexander Duyck1-0/+27
This patch updates some of the flow_dissector api so that it can be used to parse the length of ethernet buffers stored in fragments. Most of the changes needed were to __skb_get_poff as it needed to be updated to support sending a linear buffer instead of a skb. I have split __skb_get_poff into two functions, the first is skb_get_poff and it retains the functionality of the original __skb_get_poff. The other function is __skb_get_poff which now works much like __skb_flow_dissect in relation to skb_flow_dissect in that it provides the same functionality but works with just a data buffer and hlen instead of needing an skb.

2014-08-27net: dsa: reduce number of protocol hooksFlorian Fainelli1-5/+2
DSA is currently registering one packet_type function per EtherType it needs to intercept in the receive path of a DSA-enabled Ethernet device. Right now we have three of them: trailer, DSA and eDSA, and there might be more in the future, this will not scale to the addition of new protocols. This patch proceeds with adding a new layer of abstraction and two new functions: dsa_switch_rcv() which will dispatch into the tag-protocol specific receive function implemented by net/dsa/tag_*.c dsa_slave_xmit() which will dispatch into the tag-protocol specific transmit function implemented by net/dsa/tag_*.c When we do create the per-port slave network devices, we iterate over the switch protocol to assign the DSA-specific receive and transmit operations. A new fake ethertype value is used: ETH_P_XDSA to illustrate the fact that this is no longer going to look like ETH_P_DSA or ETH_P_TRAILER like it used to be. This allows us to greatly simplify the check in eth_type_trans() and always override the skb->protocol with ETH_P_XDSA for Ethernet switches tagged protocol, while also reducing the number repetitive slave netdevice_ops assignments.

2014-01-16net: eth_type_trans() should use skb_header_pointer()Eric Dumazet1-2/+5
eth_type_trans() can read uninitialized memory as drivers do not necessarily pull more than 14 bytes in skb->head before calling it. As David suggested, we can use skb_header_pointer() to fix this without breaking some drivers that might not expect eth_type_trans() pulling 2 additional bytes.

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.

Linus mentioned we could try to perform long word operations, even on potentially unaligned addresses, on x86 at least. David mentioned the HAVE_EFFICIENT_UNALIGNED_ACCESS test to handle this on all arches that have efficient unailgned accesses. I tried this idea and got nice assembly on 32 bits: 158: 33 82 38 01 00 00 xor 0x138(%edx),%eax 15e: 33 8a 34 01 00 00 xor 0x134(%edx),%ecx 164: c1 e0 10 shl $0x10,%eax 167: 09 c1 or %eax,%ecx 169: 74 0b je 176 <eth_type_trans+0x87> And very nice assembly on 64 bits of course (one xor, one shl) Nice oprofile improvement in eth_type_trans(), 0.17 % instead of 0.41 %, expected since we remove 8 instructions on a fast path. This patch implements a compare_ether_addr_64bits() function, that uses the CONFIG_HAVE_EFFICIENT_UNALIGNED_ACCESS ifdef to efficiently perform the 6 bytes comparison on all capable arches.

2008-10-08dsa: add support for original DSA tagging formatLennert Buytenhek1-0/+10
Most of the DSA switches currently in the field do not support the Ethertype DSA tagging format that one of the previous patches added support for, but only the original DSA tagging format. The original DSA tagging format carries the same information as the Ethertype DSA tagging format, but with the difference that it does not have an ethertype field. In other words, when receiving a packet that is tagged with an original DSA tag, there is no way of telling in eth_type_trans() that this packet is in fact a DSA-tagged packet. This patch adds a hook into eth_type_trans() which is only compiled in if support for a switch chip that doesn't support Ethertype DSA is selected, and which checks whether there is a DSA switch driver instance attached to this network device which uses the old tag format. If so, it sets the protocol field to ETH_P_DSA without looking at the packet, so that the packet ends up in the right place.

Since hardware header operations are part of the protocol class not the device instance, make them into a separate object and save memory. Signed-off-by: Stephen Hemminger <shemminger@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2007-10-10[NET]: Wrap hard_header_parseStephen Hemminger1-2/+2
Wrap the hard_header_parse function to simplify next step of header_ops conversion. Signed-off-by: Stephen Hemminger <shemminger@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2007-10-10[NET]: Wrap netdevice hardware header creation.Stephen Hemminger1-3/+1
Add inline for common usage of hardware header creation, and fix bug in IPV6 mcast where the assumption about negative return is an errno. Negative return from hard_header means not enough space was available,(ie -N bytes). Signed-off-by: Stephen Hemminger <shemminger@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: David S.

2007-10-10[NET]: Introduce and use print_mac() and DECLARE_MAC_BUF()Joe Perches1-0/+8
This is nicer than the MAC_FMT stuff. Signed-off-by: Joe Perches <joe@perches.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2007-10-10[NET] ethernet: optimize memcpy and memsetStephen Hemminger1-8/+8
The ethernet header management only needs to handle a fixed size address (6 bytes). If the memcpy/memset are changed to be passed a constant length, then compiler can optimize for this case (and if it is smart eliminate string instructions).

2007-07-10[CORE] Stack changes to add multiqueue hardware support APIPeter P Waskiewicz Jr1-4/+5
Add the multiqueue hardware device support API to the core network stack. Allow drivers to allocate multiple queues and manage them at the netdev level if they choose to do so. Added a new field to sk_buff, namely queue_mapping, for drivers to know which tx_ring to select based on OS classification of the flow.
