12 years ago[IPV4] IPSEC: Omit redirect for tunnelled packet.
Masahide NAKAMURA [Sat, 25 Aug 2007 06:33:01 +0000]
[IPV4] IPSEC: Omit redirect for tunnelled packet.

IPv4 IPsec tunnel gateway incorrectly sends redirect to
sender if it is onlink host when network device the IPsec tunnelled
packet is arrived is the same as the one the decapsulated packet
is sent.

With this patch, it omits to send the redirect when the forwarding
skbuff carries secpath, since such skbuff should be assumed as
a decapsulated packet from IPsec tunnel by own.

Request for comments:
Alternatively we'd have another way to change net/ipv4/route.c
(__mkroute_input) to use RTCF_DOREDIRECT flag unless skbuff
has no secpath. It is better than this patch at performance
point of view because IPv4 redirect judgement is done at
routing slow-path. However, it should be taken care of resource
changes between SAD(XFRM states) and routing table. In other words,
When IPv4 SAD is changed does the related routing entry go to its
slow-path? If not, it is reasonable to apply this patch.

[IPV6] XFRM: Fix connected socket to use transformation.

When XFRM policy and state are ready after TCP connection is started,
the traffic should be transformed immediately, however it does not
on IPv6 TCP.

It depends on a dst cache replacement policy with connected socket.
It seems that the replacement is always done for IPv4, however, on
IPv6 case it is done only when routing cookie is changed.

transformation one.
This behavior is required by MIPv6 and improves IPv6 IPsec.

12 years ago[NET] netconsole: Support dynamic reconfiguration using configfs
Satyam Sharma [Fri, 10 Aug 2007 22:35:05 +0000]
[NET] netconsole: Support dynamic reconfiguration using configfs

Based upon initial work by Keiichi Kii <k-keiichi@bx.jp.nec.com>.

This patch introduces support for dynamic reconfiguration (adding, removing
and/or modifying parameters of netconsole targets at runtime) using a
userspace interface exported via configfs.  Documentation is also updated
accordingly.

Issues and brief design overview:

(1) Kernel-initiated creation / destruction of kernel objects is not
    possible with configfs -- the lifetimes of the "config items" is managed
    exclusively from userspace.  But netconsole must support boot/module
    params too, and these are parsed in kernel and hence netpolls must be
    setup from the kernel.  Joel Becker suggested to separately manage the
    lifetimes of the two kinds of netconsole_target objects -- those created
    via configfs mkdir(2) from userspace and those specified from the
    boot/module option string.  This adds complexity and some redundancy here
    and also means that boot/module param-created targets are not exposed
    through the configfs namespace (and hence cannot be updated / destroyed
    dynamically).  However, this saves us from locking / refcounting
    complexities that would need to be introduced in configfs to support
    kernel-initiated item creation / destroy there.

(2) In configfs, item creation takes place in the call chain of the
    mkdir(2) syscall in the driver subsystem.  If we used an ioctl(2) to
    create / destroy objects from userspace, the special userspace program is
    able to fill out the structure to be passed into the ioctl and hence
    specify attributes such as local interface that are required at the time
    we set up the netpoll.  For configfs, this information is not available at
    the time of mkdir(2).  So, we keep all newly-created targets (via
    configfs) disabled by default.  The user is expected to set various
    attributes appropriately (including the local network interface if
    required) and then write(2) "1" to the "enabled" attribute.  Thus,
    netpoll_setup() is then called on the set parameters in the context of
    _this_ write(2) on the "enabled" attribute itself.  This design enables
    the user to reconfigure existing netconsole targets at runtime to be
    attached to newly-come-up interfaces that may not have existed when
    netconsole was loaded or when the targets were actually created.  All this
    effectively enables us to get rid of custom ioctls.

(3) Ultra-paranoid configfs attribute show() and store() operations, with
    sanity and input range checking, using only safe string primitives, and
    compliant with the recommendations in Documentation/filesystems/sysfs.txt.

(4) A new function netpoll_print_options() is created in the netpoll API,
    that just prints out the configured parameters for a netpoll structure.
    netpoll_parse_options() is modified to use that and it is also exported to
    be used from netconsole.

Satyam Sharma [Fri, 10 Aug 2007 22:33:40 +0000]
[NET] netconsole: Support multiple logging targets

Based upon initial work by Keiichi Kii <k-keiichi@bx.jp.nec.com>.

This patch introduces support for multiple targets, independent of
CONFIG_NETCONSOLE_DYNAMIC -- this is useful even in the default case and
(including the infrastructure introduced in previous patches) doesn't really
add too many bytes to module text.  All the complexity (and size) comes with
the dynamic reconfigurability / userspace interface patch, and so it's
plausible users may want to keep this enabled but that disabled (say to avoid
a dependency on CONFIG_CONFIGFS_FS too).

Also update documentation to mention the use of ";" separator to specify
multiple logging targets in the boot/module option string.

Brief overview:

We maintain a target_list (and corresponding lock).  Get rid of the static
"default_target" and introduce allocation and release functions for our
netconsole_target objects (but keeping sure to preserve previous behaviour
such as default values).  During init_netconsole(), ";" is used as the
separator to identify multiple target specifications in the boot/module option
string.  The target specifications are parsed and netpolls setup.  During
exit, the target_list is torn down and all items released.

Satyam Sharma [Fri, 10 Aug 2007 22:33:01 +0000]
[NET] netconsole: Introduce netconsole_netdev_notifier

Based upon initial work by Keiichi Kii <k-keiichi@bx.jp.nec.com>.

To update fields of underlying netpoll structure at runtime on corresponding
NETDEV_CHANGEADDR or NETDEV_CHANGENAME notifications.

ioctl(SIOCSIFHWADDR or SIOCSIFNAME) could be used to change the hardware/MAC
address or name of the local interface that our netpoll is attached to.
Whenever this happens, netdev notifier chain is called out with the
NETDEV_CHANGEADDR or NETDEV_CHANGENAME event message.  We respond to that and
update the local_mac or dev_name field of the struct netpoll.  This makes
sense anyway, but is especially required for dynamic netconsole because the
netpoll structure's internal members become user visible files when either
sysfs or configfs are used.  So this helps us to keep up with the MAC
address/name changes and keep values in struct netpoll uptodate.

[ Note that ioctl(SIOCSIFADDR) to change IP address of interface at
  runtime is not handled (to update local_ip of netpoll) on purpose --
  some setups may set the local_ip to a private address, not necessary
  the actual IP address of the sender host, as presently allowed. ]

12 years ago[NET] netconsole: Simplify boot/module option setup logic

[NET] netconsole: Simplify boot/module option setup logic

Based upon initial work by Keiichi Kii <k-keiichi@bx.jp.nec.com>.

Presently, boot/module parameters are set up quite differently for the case of
built-in netconsole (__setup() -> obsolete_checksetup() ->
netpoll_parse_options() -> strlen(config) == 0 in init_netconsole()) vs
modular netconsole (module_param_string() -> string copied to the config
variable -> strlen(config) != 0 init_netconsole() -> netpoll_parse_options()).

This patch makes both of them similar by doing exactly the equivalent of a
module_param_string() in option_setup() also -- just copying the param string
passed from the kernel command line into "config" variable.  So,
strlen(config) != 0 in both cases, and netpoll_parse_options() is always
called from init_netconsole(), thus making the setup logic for both cases
similar.

Now, option_setup() is only ever called / used for the built-in case, so we
put it inside a #ifndef MODULE, otherwise gcc will complain about
option_setup() being "defined but not used".  Also, the "configured" variable
is redundant with this patch and hence removed.

The (!np.dev) check in write_msg() is bogus (always false), because: np.dev is
set by netpoll_setup(), which is called by init_netconsole() before
register_console(), so write_msg() cannot be triggered unless netpoll_setup()
successfully set np.dev.  Also np.dev cannot go away from under us, because
netpoll_setup() grabs us reference on it.  So let's remove the bogus check.

for the same purpose. This changes them to static inlines as
preferred according the current coding style and unifies the
access to sack_ok across multiple files. Magic bitops of sack_ok
for FACK and DSACK are also abstracted to functions with
appropriate names.

Note:
- One sack_ok = 1 remains but that's self explanary, i.e., it
  enables sack
- Couple of !IsReno cases are changed to tcp_is_sack
- There were no users for IsDSack => I dropped it

[TCP]: Reduce sacked_out with reno when purging write_queue

Previously TCP had a transitional state during which reno
counted segments that are already below the current window into
sacked_out, which is now prevented. In addition, re-try now
the unconditional S+L skb catching.

This approach conservatively calls just remove_sack and leaves
reset_sack() calls alone. The best solution to the whole problem
would be to first calculate the new sacked_out fully (this patch
does not move reno_sack_reset calls from original sites and thus
does not implement this). However, that would require very
invasive change to fastretrans_alert (perhaps even slicing it to
two halves). Alternatively, all callers of tcp_packets_in_flight
(i.e., users that depend on sacked_out) should be postponed
until the new sacked_out has been calculated but it isn't any
simpler alternative.

12 years ago[NET]: Make NAPI polling independent of struct net_device objects.
Stephen Hemminger [Wed, 3 Oct 2007 23:41:36 +0000]
[NET]: Make NAPI polling independent of struct net_device objects.

Several devices have multiple independant RX queues per net
device, and some have a single interrupt doorbell for several
queues.

In either case, it's easier to support layouts like that if the
structure representing the poll is independant from the net
device itself.

The signature of the ->poll() call back goes from:

int foo_poll(struct net_device *dev, int *budget)

to

int foo_poll(struct napi_struct *napi, int budget)

The caller is returned the number of RX packets processed (or
the number of "NAPI credits" consumed if you want to get
abstract).  The callee no longer messes around bumping
dev->quota, *budget, etc. because that is all handled in the
caller upon return.

The napi_struct is to be embedded in the device driver private data
structures.

Furthermore, it is the driver's responsibility to disable all NAPI
instances in it's ->stop() device close handler.  Since the
napi_struct is privatized into the driver's private data structures,
only the driver knows how to get at all of the napi_struct instances
it may have per-device.

With lots of help and suggestions from Rusty Russell, Roland Dreier,
Michael Chan, Jeff Garzik, and Jamal Hadi Salim.

used but if the flag is set the long retry should be used.

This does not prevent the driver to ignore the request for "no retry" packets,

denying the association with code 12: "Association denied due to reason
outside the scope of this standard"

up.

I see 2 problems here:
 1. bringing the interface down and up again should be resetting interface state
    i.e. after the interface is brought down, it should have no memory of if or
