be2net: Fix to avoid firmware update when interface is not open.

Since interrupts are enabled only when open is called on the interface,
Attempting a firmware update operation when interface is down could lead to
partial success or failure of operation. This fix fails the request if

net: zero kobject in rx_queue_release

netif_set_real_num_rx_queues() can decrement and increment

features and offloads are toggled. Presumably this could
also happen across down/up on most devices if the available

The kobject needs to be zero'd in this case so that the
state is not preserved across kobject_put()/kobject_init_and_add().

This resolves the following error report.

8 years agonet: rtnetlink.h -- only include linux/netdevice.h when used by the kernel
Andy Whitcroft [Mon, 15 Nov 2010 06:01:59 +0000]
net: rtnetlink.h -- only include linux/netdevice.h when used by the kernel

The commit below added a new helper dev_ingress_queue to cleanly obtain the
ingress queue pointer.  This necessitated including 'linux/netdevice.h':

  commit 24824a09e35402b8d58dcc5be803a5ad3937bdba
  Author: Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com>
  Date:   Sat Oct 2 06:11:55 2010 +0000

    net: dynamic ingress_queue allocation

However this include triggers issues for applications in userspace
which use the rtnetlink interfaces.  Commonly this requires they include
'net/if.h' and 'linux/rtnetlink.h' leading to a compiler error as below:

  In file included from /usr/include/linux/netdevice.h:28:0,
                   from /usr/include/linux/rtnetlink.h:9,
                   from t.c:2:
  /usr/include/linux/if.h:135:8: error: redefinition of ‘struct ifmap’
  /usr/include/net/if.h:112:8: note: originally defined here
  /usr/include/linux/if.h:169:8: error: redefinition of ‘struct ifreq’

  /usr/include/net/if.h:177:8: note: originally defined here

The new helper is only defined for the kernel and protected by __KERNEL__
therefore we can simply pull the include down into the same protected
section.

ipv6: addrconf: don't remove address state on ifdown if the address is being kept

Currently, addrconf_ifdown does not delete statically configured IPv6
addresses when the interface is brought down. The intent is that when
the interface comes back up the address will be usable again. However,
this doesn't actually work, because the system stops listening on the
corresponding solicited-node multicast address, so the address cannot
respond to neighbor solicitations and thus receive traffic. Also, the
code notifies the rest of the system that the address is being deleted
(e.g, RTM_DELADDR), even though it is not. Fix it so that none of this
state is updated if the address is being kept on the interface.

Tested: Added a statically configured IPv6 address to an interface,
started ping, brought link down, brought link up again. When link came
up ping kept on going and "ip -6 maddr" showed that the host was still
subscribed to there

ixgbe: Look inside vlan when determining offload protocol.

Currently the skb->protocol field is used to setup various
offloading parameters on transmit for the correct protocol.
However, if vlan offloading is disabled or otherwise not used,
the protocol field will be ETH_P_8021Q, not the actual protocol.
This will cause the offloading to be not performed correctly,
even though the hardware is capable of looking inside vlan tags.
Instead, look inside the header if necessary to determine the
correct protocol type.

To some extent this fixes a regression from 2.6.36 because it
was previously not possible to disable vlan offloading and this
error case was not exposed.

bnx2x: Look inside vlan when determining checksum proto.

Currently the skb->protocol field is used to setup checksum
offloading on transmit for the correct protocol.  However, if
vlan offloading is disabled or otherwise not used, the protocol
field will be ETH_P_8021Q, not the actual protocol.  This will
cause the checksum to be not computed correctly, even though the
hardware is capable of looking inside vlan tags.  Instead,
look inside the header if necessary to determine the correct
protocol type.

To some extent this fixes a regression from 2.6.36 because it
was previously not possible to disable vlan offloading and this
error case was not exposed.

Hao Zheng [Thu, 11 Nov 2010 13:47:57 +0000]
vlan: Add function to retrieve EtherType from vlan packets.

Depending on how a packet is vlan tagged (i.e. hardware accelerated or
not), the encapsulated protocol is stored in different locations.  This
provides a consistent method of accessing that protocol, which is needed
by drivers, security checks, etc.

virtio-net: init link state correctly

For device that supports VIRTIO_NET_F_STATUS, there's no need to
assume the link is up and we need to call nerif_carrier_off() before
querying device status, otherwise we may get wrong operstate after
diver was loaded because the link watch event was not fired as
expected.

For device that does not support VIRITO_NET_F_STATUS, we could not get
its status through virtnet_update_status() and what we can only do is
always assuming the link is up.

rtnetlink: Fix message size calculation for link messages

nlmsg_total_size() calculates the length of a netlink message
including header and alignment. nla_total_size() calculates the
space an individual attribute consumes which was meant to be used

Also, ensure to account for the attribute header for the
IFLA_INFO_XSTATS attribute as implementations of get_xstats_size()
seem to assume that we do so.

The addition of two message headers minus the missing attribute
header resulted in a calculated message size that was larger than
required. Therefore we never risked running out of skb tailroom.

But pratically on measuring the above we note that the intensity of
backlight goes to zero(OFF) when the value in not zero almost nearing to
zero(some x%).  so the graph looks like

intensity
  |    /
  |   /
  |  /
  |  |
  ------------
 0   x  max_brightness

In order to overcome this drawback knowing this x% i.e nothing but the low
threshold beyond which the backlight is off and will have no effect, the
brightness value is being offset by the low threshold value(retaining the
linearity of the graph).  Now the graph becomes

intensity
  |     /
  |    /
  |   /
  |  /
  -------------
   0   max_brightness

With this for each and every digit increment in the brightness from zero
there is a change in the intensity of backlight.  Devices having this
behaviour can set the low threshold brightness(lth_brightness) and pass
the same as platform data else can have it as zero.

8 years agoled-class: always implement blinking
Johannes Berg [Thu, 11 Nov 2010 22:05:21 +0000]
led-class: always implement blinking

Currently, blinking LEDs can be awkward because it is not guaranteed that
all LEDs implement blinking.  The trigger that wants it to blink then
needs to implement its own timer solution.

Rather than require that, add led_blink_set() API that triggers can use.
This function will attempt to use hw blinking, but if that fails
implements a timer for it.  To stop blinking again, brightness_set() also
needs to be wrapped into API that will stop the software blink.

As a result of this, the timer trigger becomes a very trivial one, and
hopefully we can finally see triggers using blinking as well because it's
always easy to use.

radix-tree: fix RCU bug

Salman Qazi describes the following radix-tree bug:

In the following case, we get can get a deadlock:

0.  The radix tree contains two items, one has the index 0.
1.  The reader (in this case find_get_pages) takes the rcu_read_lock.
2.  The reader acquires slot(s) for item(s) including the index 0 item.
3.  The non-zero index item is deleted, and as a consequence the other item is
    moved to the root of the tree. The place where it used to be is queued for
    deletion after the readers finish.
3b. The zero item is deleted, removing it from the direct slot, it remains in
    the rcu-delayed indirect node.
4.  The reader looks at the index 0 slot, and finds that the page has 0 ref
    count
5.  The reader looks at it again, hoping that the item will either be freed or
    the ref count will increase. This never happens, as the slot it is looking
    at will never be updated. Also, this slot can never be reclaimed because
    the reader is holding rcu_read_lock and is in an infinite loop.

The fix is to re-use the same "indirect" pointer case that requires a slot
lookup retry into a general "retry the lookup" bit.

8 years agoRestrict unprivileged access to kernel syslog
Dan Rosenberg [Thu, 11 Nov 2010 22:05:18 +0000]
Restrict unprivileged access to kernel syslog

The kernel syslog contains debugging information that is often useful
during exploitation of other vulnerabilities, such as kernel heap
addresses.  Rather than futilely attempt to sanitize hundreds (or
thousands) of printk statements and simultaneously cripple useful
debugging functionality, it is far simpler to create an option that
prevents unprivileged users from reading the syslog.

This patch, loosely based on grsecurity's GRKERNSEC_DMESG, creates the
dmesg_restrict sysctl.  When set to "0", the default, no restrictions are
enforced.  When set to "1", only users with CAP_SYS_ADMIN can read the
kernel syslog via dmesg(8) or other mechanisms.

8 years agomm/vfs: revalidate page->mapping in do_generic_file_read()
Dave Hansen [Thu, 11 Nov 2010 22:05:15 +0000]
mm/vfs: revalidate page->mapping in do_generic_file_read()

70 hours into some stress tests of a 2.6.32-based enterprise kernel, we
ran into a NULL dereference in here:

int block_is_partially_uptodate(struct page *page, read_descriptor_t *desc,
                                        unsigned long from)
{
----> struct inode *inode = page->mapping->host;

It looks like page->mapping was the culprit.  (xmon trace is below).
After closer examination, I realized that do_generic_file_read() does a
find_get_page(), and eventually locks the page before calling
block_is_partially_uptodate().  However, it doesn't revalidate the
page->mapping after the page is locked.  So, there's a small window
between the find_get_page() and ->is_partially_uptodate() where the page
could get truncated and page->mapping cleared.

We _have_ a reference, so it can't get reclaimed, but it certainly
can be truncated.

I think the correct thing is to check page->mapping after the
trylock_page(), and jump out if it got truncated.  This patch has been
running in the test environment for a month or so now, and we have not
seen this bug pop up again.

8 years agokernel/range.c: fix clean_sort_range() for the case of full array
Alexey Khoroshilov [Thu, 11 Nov 2010 22:05:14 +0000]
kernel/range.c: fix clean_sort_range() for the case of full array

clean_sort_range() should return a number of nonempty elements of range
array, but if the array is full clean_sort_range() returns 0.

The problem is that the number of nonempty elements is evaluated by
finding the first empty element of the array.  If there is no such element
it returns an initial value of local variable nr_range that is zero.

The fix is trivial: it changes initial value of nr_range to size of the
array.

The bug can lead to loss of information regarding all ranges, since
typically returned value of clean_sort_range() is considered as an actual
number of ranges in the array after a series of add/subtract operations.

Found by Analytical Verification project of Linux Verification Center
(linuxtesting.org), thanks to Alexander Kolosov.

8 years agodrivers/misc/bh1770glc.c: error handling in bh1770_power_state_store()

drivers/misc/bh1770glc.c: error handling in bh1770_power_state_store()

There was a signedness bug so "ret" was never less than zero and that
breaks the error handling.  Also in the original code it would overwrite
ret and the result is still negative but it's bogus number instead of the
correct error code.
