mac80211: detect driver tx bugs

When a driver rejects a frame in it's ->tx() callback, it must also
stop queues, otherwise mac80211 can go into a loop here. Detect this

netlink: genl: fix circular locking

genetlink has a circular locking dependency when dumping the registered
families:

- dump start:
genl_rcv()            : take genl_mutex
genl_rcv_msg()        : call netlink_dump_start() while holding genl_mutex
netlink_dump_start(),
netlink_dump()        : take nlk->cb_mutex
ctrl_dumpfamily()     : try to detect this case and not take genl_mutex a
                        second time

- dump continuance:
netlink_rcv()         : call netlink_dump
netlink_dump          : take nlk->cb_mutex
ctrl_dumpfamily()     : take genl_mutex

Register genl_lock as callback mutex with netlink to fix this. This slightly
widens an already existing module unload race, the genl ops used during the
dump might go away when the module is unloaded. Thomas Graf is working on a
seperate fix for this.

Wang Chen [Wed, 18 Jun 2008 08:48:28 +0000]
netdevice: Fix promiscuity and allmulti overflow

Max of promiscuity and allmulti plus positive @inc can cause overflow.
Fox example: when allmulti=0xFFFFFFFF, any caller give dev_set_allmulti() a
positive @inc will cause allmulti be off.
This is not what we want, though it's rare case.
The fix is that only negative @inc will cause allmulti or promiscuity be off
and when any caller makes the counters touch the roof, we return error.

Change of v2:
Change void function dev_set_promiscuity/allmulti to return int.
So callers can get the overflow error.
Caller's fix will be done later.

Change of v3:
1. Since we return error to caller, we don't need to print KERN_ERROR,
KERN_WARNING is enough.
2. In dev_set_promiscuity(), if __dev_set_promiscuity() failed, we
return at once.

11 years agoRevert "mac80211: Use skb_header_cloned() on TX path."
David S. Miller [Wed, 18 Jun 2008 08:19:51 +0000]
Revert "mac80211: Use skb_header_cloned() on TX path."

This reverts commit 608961a5eca8d3c6bd07172febc27b5559408c5d.

The problem is that the mac80211 stack not only needs to be able to
muck with the link-level headers, it also might need to mangle all of
the packet data if doing sw wireless encryption.

This fixes kernel bugzilla #10903.  Thanks to Didier Raboud (for the
bugzilla report), Andrew Prince (for bisecting), Johannes Berg (for
bringing this bisection analysis to my attention), and Ilpo (for
trying to analyze this purely from the TCP side).

In 2.6.27 we can take another stab at this, by using something like
skb_cow_data() when the TX path of mac80211 ends up with a non-NULL
tx->key.  The ESP protocol code in the IPSEC stack can be used as a
model for implementation.

11 years agoaf_unix: fix 'poll for write'/ connected DGRAM sockets
Rainer Weikusat [Wed, 18 Jun 2008 05:28:05 +0000]
af_unix: fix 'poll for write'/ connected DGRAM sockets

The unix_dgram_sendmsg routine implements a (somewhat crude)
form of receiver-imposed flow control by comparing the length of the
receive queue of the 'peer socket' with the max_ack_backlog value
stored in the corresponding sock structure, either blocking
the thread which caused the send-routine to be called or returning
EAGAIN. This routine is used by both SOCK_DGRAM and SOCK_SEQPACKET
sockets. The poll-implementation for these socket types is
datagram_poll from core/datagram.c. A socket is deemed to be writeable
by this routine when the memory presently consumed by datagrams
owned by it is less than the configured socket send buffer size. This
is always wrong for connected PF_UNIX non-stream sockets when the
abovementioned receive queue is currently considered to be full.
'poll' will then return, indicating that the socket is writeable, but
a subsequent write result in EAGAIN, effectively causing an
(usual) application to 'poll for writeability by repeated send request
with O_NONBLOCK set' until it has consumed its time quantum.

The change below uses a suitably modified variant of the datagram_poll
routines for both type of PF_UNIX sockets, which tests if the
recv-queue of the peer a socket is connected to is presently
considered to be 'full' as part of the 'is this socket
writeable'-checking code. The socket being polled is additionally
put onto the peer_wait wait queue associated with its peer, because the
unix_dgram_sendmsg routine does a wake up on this queue after a
datagram was received and the 'other wakeup call' is done implicitly
as part of skb destruction, meaning, a process blocked in poll
because of a full peer receive queue could otherwise sleep forever
if no datagram owned by its socket was already sitting on this queue.
Among this change is a small (inline) helper routine named
'unix_recvq_full', which consolidates the actual testing code (in three
different places) into a single location.

ax25: Fix std timer socket destroy handling.

Tihomir Heidelberg - 9a4gl, reports:

--------------------
I would like to direct you attention to one problem existing in ax.25
kernel since 2.4. If listening socket is closed and its SKB queue is
released but those sockets get weird. Those "unAccepted()" sockets
should be destroyed in ax25_std_heartbeat_expiry, but it will not
happen. And there is also a note about that in ax25_std_timer.c:
/* Magic here: If we listen() and a new link dies before it
is accepted() it isn't 'dead' so doesn't get removed. */

This issue cause ax25d to stop accepting new connections and I had to
restarted ax25d approximately each day and my services were unavailable.
Also netstat -n -l shows invalid source and device for those listening
sockets. It is strange why ax25d's listening socket get weird because of
this issue, but definitely when I solved this bug I do not have problems
with ax25d anymore and my ax25d can run for months without problems.
--------------------

Actually as far as I can see, this problem is even in releases
as far back as 2.2.x as well.

It seems senseless to special case this test on TCP_LISTEN state.
Anything still stuck in state 0 has no external references and
we can just simply kill it off directly.

atl1: relax eeprom mac address error check

The atl1 driver tries to determine the MAC address thusly:

- If an EEPROM exists, read the MAC address from EEPROM and
  validate it.
- If an EEPROM doesn't exist, try to read a MAC address from
  SPI flash.
- If that fails, try to read a MAC address directly from the
  MAC Station Address register.
- If that fails, assign a random MAC address provided by the
  kernel.

We now have a report of a system fitted with an EEPROM containing all
zeros where we expect the MAC address to be, and we currently handle
this as an error condition.  Turns out, on this system the BIOS writes
a valid MAC address to the NIC's MAC Station Address register, but we
never try to read it because we return an error when we find the all-
zeros address in EEPROM.

This patch relaxes the error check and continues looking for a MAC
address even if it finds an illegal one in EEPROM.

net/enc28j60: low power mode

Keep enc28j60 chips in low-power mode when they're not in use.
At typically 120 mA, these chips run hot even when idle; this
low power mode cuts that power usage by a factor of around 100.

This version provides a generic routine to poll a register until
its masked value equals some value ... e.g. bit set or cleared.
It's basically what the previous wait_phy_ready() did, but this
version is generalized to support the handshaking needed to
enter and exit low power mode.

11 years agorose: improving AX25 routing frames via ROSE network
Bernard Pidoux [Wed, 18 Jun 2008 00:08:32 +0000]
rose: improving AX25 routing frames via ROSE network

ROSE network is organized through nodes connected via hamradio or Internet.
AX25 packet radio frames sent to a remote ROSE address destination are routed
through these nodes.

Without the present patch, automatic routing mechanism did not work optimally
due to an improper parameter checking.

rose_get_neigh() function is called either by rose_connect() or by
rose_route_frame().

In the case of a call from rose_connect(), f0 timer is checked to find if a connection
is already pending. In that case it returns the address of the neighbour, or returns a NULL otherwise.

When called by rose_route_frame() the purpose was to route a packet AX25 frame
through an adjacent node given a destination rose address.
However, in that case, t0 timer checked does not indicate if the adjacent node
is actually connected even if the timer is not null. Thus, for each frame sent, the
function often tried to start a new connexion even if the adjacent node was already connected.

The patch adds a "new" parameter that is true when the function is called by
rose route_frame().
This instructs rose_get_neigh() to check node parameter "restarted".
If restarted is true it means that the route to the destination address is opened via a neighbour
node already connected.
If "restarted" is false the function returns a NULL.
In that case the calling function will initiate a new connection as before.

This results in a fast routing of frames, from nodes to nodes, until
destination is reached, as originaly specified by ROSE protocole.

register it normally and make sure its not assigned to connections during

code path creates new socks via ax25_make_new() and attaches them
to the incoming SKB.  This SKB gets queued up into the listening
socket's receive queue.

When accept()'d the sock gets hooked up to the real parent socket.
Alternatively, if the listening socket is closed and released, any
unborn socks stuff up in the receive queue get released.

So during this time period these sockets are unreachable in any
other way, so no wakeup events nor references to their ->sk_socket
and ->sk_sleep members can occur.  And even if they do, all such
paths have to make NULL checks.

So do not deceptively initialize them in ax25_make_new() to the
values in the listening socket.  Leave them at NULL.

Finally, use sock_graft() in ax25_accept().

netns: introduce the net_hash_mix "salt" for hashes

There are many possible ways to add this "salt", thus I made this
patch to be the last in the series to change it if required.

Currently I propose to use the struct net pointer itself as this
salt, but since this pointer is most often cache-line aligned, shift
this right to eliminate the bits, that are most often zeroed.

After this, simply add this mix to prepared hashfn-s.

For CONFIG_NET_NS=n case this salt is 0 and no changes in hashfn
appear.

net: Fix test for VLAN TX checksum offload capability

Selected device feature bits can be propagated to VLAN devices, so we
can make use of TX checksum offload and TSO on VLAN-tagged packets.
However, if the physical device does not do VLAN tag insertion or
generic checksum offload then the test for TX checksum offload in
dev_queue_xmit() will see a protocol of htons(ETH_P_8021Q) and yield
false.

This splits the checksum offload test into two functions:

- can_checksum_protocol() tests a given protocol against a feature bitmask

- dev_can_checksum() first tests the skb protocol against the device
  features; if that fails and the protocol is htons(ETH_P_8021Q) then
  it tests the encapsulated protocol against the effective device
  features for VLANs
