ath5k: correct interrupt storm warning

Ben Greear points out that the "too many interrupts" message will
never print in the intended case since the interrupt counter
will be -1 after the loop.  Change it to pre-decrement so it will
be 0 on the thousandth iteration.

rt2x00: Add support for L2 padding during TX/RX

Some hardware require L2 padding between header and payload
because both must be aligned to a 4-byte boundary. This hardware
also is easier during the RX path since we no longer need to
move the entire payload but rather only the header to remove

mac80211: fix probe response processing

Due to the use of a _REQ_DIRECT_PROBE bit, which is
unnecessary (and I wonder why it was done that way),
an interesting situation can arise:
 1) we try to probe an access point
 2) the AP doesn't response in time
 3) we tell userspace that we gave up
 4) the AP suddenly responds
 5) we auth/assoc with the AP

I've seen 4) happen in testing with hostapd SIGSTOPped,
and when SIGCONTinued it processes the probe requests
that came in and send responses. But 5) is not supposed
to happen after we tell everybody we've given up on the
AP.

To fix this, remove the _REQ_DIRECT_PROBE request bit,
and process probe responses when we're in the relevant
MLME state, namely IEEE80211_STA_MLME_DIRECT_PROBE.

beacon ourselves and the latter when we are associated to

This just deprecates the hw.conf.beacon_int setting in favour

mac80211: fix scan races and rework scanning

There are some places marked
/* XXX maybe racy? */
and they really are racy because there's no locking.

This patch reworks much of the scan code, and introduces proper
locking for the scan request as well as the internal scanning
(which is necessary for IBSS/managed modes). Helper functions
are added to call the scanning code whenever necessary. The
scan deferring is changed to simply queue the scanning work
instead of trying to start the scan in place, the scanning work
will then take care of the rest.

Also, currently when internal scans are requested for an interface
that is trying to associate, we reject such scans. This was not
intended, the mlme code has provisions to scan twice when it can't
find the BSS to associate with right away; this has never worked
properly. Fix this by not rejecting internal scan requests for an
interface that is associating.

tcp: extend ECN sysctl to allow server-side only ECN

This should be very safe compared with full enabled, so I see
no reason why it shouldn't be done right away. As ECN can only
be negotiated if the SYN sending party is also supporting it,
somebody in the loop probably knows what he/she is doing. If
SYN does not ask for ECN, the server side SYN-ACK is identical
to what it is without ECN. Thus it's quite safe.

The chosen value is safe w.r.t to existing configs which
choose to currently set manually either 0 or 1 but
silently upgrades those who have not explicitly requested
ECN off.

Whether to just enable both sides comes up time to time but
unless that gets done now we can at least make the servers
aware of ECN already. As there are some known problems to occur
if ECN is enabled, it's currently questionable whether there's
any real gain from enabling clients as servers mostly won't
support it anyway (so we'd hit just the negative sides). After
enabling the servers and getting that deployed, the client end
enable really has some potential gain too.

10 years agonet: Avoid modulus in skb_tx_hash() for forwarding case.
David S. Miller [Sun, 3 May 2009 21:43:10 +0000]
net: Avoid modulus in skb_tx_hash() for forwarding case.

Based almost entirely upon a patch by Eric Dumazet.

The common case is to have num-tx-queues <= num_rx_queues
and even if num_tx_queues is larger it will not be significantly
larger.

Therefore, a subtraction loop is always going to be faster than
modulus.

10 years agomv643xx_eth: 64bit mib counter read fix
Lennert Buytenhek [Wed, 29 Apr 2009 11:58:18 +0000]
mv643xx_eth: 64bit mib counter read fix

On several mv643xx_eth hardware versions, the two 64bit mib counters
for 'good octets received' and 'good octets sent' are actually 32bit
counters, and reading from the upper half of the register has the same
effect as reading from the lower half of the register: an atomic
read-and-clear of the entire 32bit counter value.  This can under heavy
traffic occasionally lead to small numbers being added to the upper
half of the 64bit mib counter even though no 32bit wrap has occured.

Since we poll the mib counters at least every 30 seconds anyway, we
might as well just skip the reads of the upper halves of the hardware
counters without breaking the stats, which this patch does.

10 years agomv643xx_eth: OOM handling fixes
Lennert Buytenhek [Wed, 29 Apr 2009 11:57:34 +0000]
mv643xx_eth: OOM handling fixes

Currently, when OOM occurs during rx ring refill, mv643xx_eth will get
into an infinite loop, due to the refill function setting the OOM bit
but not clearing the 'rx refill needed' bit for this queue, while the
calling function (the NAPI poll handler) will call the refill function
in a loop until the 'rx refill needed' bit goes off, without checking
the OOM bit.

This patch fixes this by checking the OOM bit in the NAPI poll handler
before attempting to do rx refill.  This means that once OOM occurs,
we won't try to do any memory allocations again until the next invocation
of the poll handler.

While we're at it, change the OOM flag to be a single bit instead of
one bit per receive queue since OOM is a system state rather than a
per-queue state, and cancel the OOM timer on entry to the NAPI poll
handler if it's running to prevent it from firing when we've already
come out of OOM.

e100: do not go D3 in shutdown unless system is powering off

After experimenting with kexec with the last merges after 2.6.29, I've
had some problems when probing e100.  It would not read the eeprom.  After

2.6.18).  The problem is that shutdown is doing the same thing that
suspend does and puts the device in D3 state.  I couldn't find a way to
get the device back to a sane state in the probe function.  So, based on
some similar patches from Rafael J. Wysocki for e1000, e1000e, and ixgbe,
I wrote this one for e100.

netfilter: revised locking for x_tables

The x_tables are organized with a table structure and a per-cpu copies
of the counters and rules. On older kernels there was a reader/writer
lock per table which was a performance bottleneck. In 2.6.30-rc, this
was converted to use RCU and the counters/rules which solved the performance
problems for do_table but made replacing rules much slower because of
the necessary RCU grace period.

This version uses a per-cpu set of spinlocks and counters to allow to
table processing to proceed without the cache thrashing of a global
reader lock and keeps the same performance for table updates.

Marcel Holtmann [Tue, 28 Apr 2009 16:04:55 +0000]
Bluetooth: Fix connection establishment with low security requirement

The Bluetooth 2.1 specification introduced four different security modes
that can be mapped using Legacy Pairing and Simple Pairing. With the
usage of Simple Pairing it is required that all connections (except
the ones for SDP) are encrypted. So even the low security requirement
mandates an encrypted connection when using Simple Pairing. When using
Legacy Pairing (for Bluetooth 2.0 devices and older) this is not required
since it causes interoperability issues.

To support this properly the low security requirement translates into
different host controller transactions depending if Simple Pairing is
supported or not. However in case of Simple Pairing the command to
switch on encryption after a successful authentication is not triggered
for the low security mode. This patch fixes this and actually makes
the logic to differentiate between Simple Pairing and Legacy Pairing
a lot simpler.

Marcel Holtmann [Sun, 26 Apr 2009 18:01:22 +0000]
Bluetooth: Add different pairing timeout for Legacy Pairing

The Bluetooth stack uses a reference counting for all established ACL
links and if no user (L2CAP connection) is present, the link will be
terminated to save power. The problem part is the dedicated pairing
when using Legacy Pairing (Bluetooth 2.0 and before). At that point
no user is present and pairing attempts will be disconnected within
10 seconds or less. In previous kernel version this was not a problem
since the disconnect timeout wasn't triggered on incoming connections
for the first time. However this caused issues with broken host stacks
that kept the connections around after dedicated pairing. When the
support for Simple Pairing got added, the link establishment procedure
needed to be changed and now causes issues when using Legacy Pairing

When using Simple Pairing it is possible to do a proper reference
counting of ACL link users. With Legacy Pairing this is not possible
since the specification is unclear in some areas and too many broken
Bluetooth devices have already been deployed. So instead of trying to
deal with all the broken devices, a special pairing timeout will be
introduced that increases the timeout to 60 seconds when pairing is
triggered.

If a broken devices now puts the stack into an unforeseen state, the
worst that happens is the disconnect timeout triggers after 120 seconds
instead of 4 seconds. This allows successful pairings with legacy and
broken devices now.

10 years agonet: Avoid extra wakeups of threads blocked in wait_for_packet()
Eric Dumazet [Tue, 28 Apr 2009 09:24:21 +0000]
net: Avoid extra wakeups of threads blocked in wait_for_packet()

In 2.6.25 we added UDP mem accounting.

This unfortunatly added a penalty when a frame is transmitted, since
we have at TX completion time to call sock_wfree() to perform necessary
memory accounting. This calls sock_def_write_space() and utimately
scheduler if any thread is waiting on the socket.
Thread(s) waiting for an incoming frame was scheduled, then had to sleep
again as event was meaningless.

(All threads waiting on a socket are using same sk_sleep anchor)

This adds lot of extra wakeups and increases latencies, as noted
by Christoph Lameter, and slows down softirq handler.

Reference : http://marc.info/?l=linux-netdev&m=124060437012283&w=2

Fortunatly, Davide Libenzi recently added concept of keyed wakeups
into kernel, and particularly for sockets (see commit
37e5540b3c9d838eb20f2ca8ea2eb8072271e403
epoll keyed wakeups: make sockets use keyed wakeups)

Davide goal was to optimize epoll, but this new wakeup infrastructure
can help non epoll users as well, if they care to setup an appropriate
handler.

This patch introduces new DEFINE_WAIT_FUNC() helper and uses it
in wait_for_packet(), so that only relevant event can wakeup a thread
blocked in this function.

Trace of function calls from bnx2 TX completion bnx2_poll_work() is :

net: Fix ucc_geth.c handling of fixed-link w/o phy-connection-type property.

Previous rework to ucc_geth.c to add of_mdio support (net: Rework
ucc_geth driver to use of_mdio infrastructure) added a block of
code which broke older openfirmware device trees which this case.

This patch removes the offending blurb.
