IPv6 routing, NLM_F_* flag support: REPLACE and EXCL flags support, warn about missing CREATE flag

The support for NLM_F_* flags at IPv6 routing requests.

If NLM_F_CREATE flag is not defined for RTM_NEWROUTE request,
warning is printed, but no error is returned. Instead new route is
added. Later NLM_F_CREATE may be required for
new route creation.

Exception is when NLM_F_REPLACE flag is given without NLM_F_CREATE, and
no matching route is found. In this case it should be safe to assume
that the request issuer is familiar with NLM_F_* flags, and does really
not want route to be created.

Specifying NLM_F_REPLACE flag will now make the kernel to search for
matching route, and replace it with new one. If no route is found and
NLM_F_CREATE is specified as well, then new route is created.

Also, specifying NLM_F_EXCL will yield returning of error if matching
route is found.

8 years agobnx2x: uses build_skb() in receive path
Eric Dumazet [Mon, 14 Nov 2011 06:05:34 +0000]
bnx2x: uses build_skb() in receive path

bnx2x uses following formula to compute its rx_buf_sz :

dev->mtu + 2*L1_CACHE_BYTES + 14 + 8 + 8 + 2

Then core network adds NET_SKB_PAD and SKB_DATA_ALIGN(sizeof(struct
skb_shared_info))

Final allocated size for skb head on x86_64 (L1_CACHE_BYTES = 64,
MTU=1500) : 2112 bytes : SLUB/SLAB round this to 4096 bytes.

Since skb truesize is then bigger than SK_MEM_QUANTUM, we have lot of
false sharing because of mem_reclaim in UDP stack.

One possible way to half truesize is to reduce the need by 64 bytes
(2112 -> 2048 bytes)

Instead of allocating a full cache line at the end of packet for
alignment, we can use the fact that skb_shared_info sits at the end of
skb->head, and we can use this room, if we convert bnx2x to new
build_skb() infrastructure.

skb_shared_info will be initialized after hardware finished its
transfert, so we can eventually overwrite the final padding.

Using build_skb() also reduces cache line misses in the driver, since we
use cache hot skb instead of cold ones. Number of in-flight sk_buff
structures is lower, they are recycled while still hot.

Performance results :

(820.000 pps on a rx UDP monothread benchmark, instead of 720.000 pps)

8 years agonet: introduce build_skb()
Eric Dumazet [Mon, 14 Nov 2011 06:03:34 +0000]
net: introduce build_skb()

One of the thing we discussed during netdev 2011 conference was the idea
to change some network drivers to allocate/populate their skb at RX
completion time, right before feeding the skb to network stack.

In old days, we allocated skbs when populating the RX ring.

This means bringing into cpu cache sk_buff and skb_shared_info cache
lines (since we clear/initialize them), then 'queue' skb->data to NIC.

By the time NIC fills a frame in skb->data buffer and host can process
it, cpu probably threw away the cache lines from its caches, because lot
of things happened between the allocation and final use.

So the deal would be to allocate only the data buffer for the NIC to
populate its RX ring buffer. And use build_skb() at RX completion to
attach a data buffer (now filled with an ethernet frame) to a new skb,
initialize the skb_shared_info portion, and give the hot skb to network
stack.

build_skb() is the function to allocate an skb, caller providing the
data buffer that should be attached to it. Drivers are expected to call
skb_reserve() right after build_skb() to adjust skb->data to the
Ethernet frame (usually skipping NET_SKB_PAD and NET_IP_ALIGN, but some
drivers might add a hardware provided alignment)

Data provided to build_skb() MUST have been allocated by a prior
kmalloc() call, with enough room to add SKB_DATA_ALIGN(sizeof(struct
skb_shared_info)) bytes at the end of the data without corrupting
incoming frame.

data = kmalloc(NET_SKB_PAD + NET_IP_ALIGN + 1536 +
               SKB_DATA_ALIGN(sizeof(struct skb_shared_info)),
       GFP_ATOMIC);
...
skb = build_skb(data);
if (!skb) {
recycle_data(data);
} else {
skb_reserve(skb, NET_SKB_PAD + NET_IP_ALIGN);
...
}

ipv6: reduce percpu needs for icmpv6msg mibs

Reading /proc/net/snmp6 on a machine with a lot of cpus is very
expensive (can be ~88000 us).

This is because ICMPV6MSG MIB uses 4096 bytes per cpu, and folding
values for all possible cpus can read 16 Mbytes of memory (32MBytes on
non x86 arches)

ICMP messages are not considered as fast path on a typical server, and
eventually few cpus handle them anyway. We can afford an atomic
operation instead of using percpu data.

This saves 4096 bytes per cpu and per network namespace.

8 years agonet: introduce ethernet teaming device

net: introduce ethernet teaming device

This patch introduces new network device called team. It supposes to be
very fast, simple, userspace-driven alternative to existing bonding
driver.

Userspace library called libteam with couple of demo apps is available
here:
https://github.com/jpirko/libteam
Note it's still in its dipers atm.

team<->libteam use generic netlink for communication. That and rtnl
suppose to be the only way to configure team device, no sysfs etc.

Python binding of libteam was recently introduced.
Daemon providing arpmon/miimon active-backup functionality will be
introduced shortly. All what's necessary is already implemented in
kernel team driver.

v7->v8:
- check ndo_ndo_vlan_rx_[add/kill]_vid functions before calling
  them.
- use dev_kfree_skb_any() instead of dev_kfree_skb()

v6->v7:
- transmit and receive functions are not checked in hot paths.
  That also resolves memory leak on transmit when no port is
  present

v5->v6:
- changed couple of _rcu calls to non _rcu ones in non-readers

v4->v5:
- team_change_mtu() uses team->lock while travesing though port
  list
- mac address changes are moved completely to jurisdiction of
  userspace daemon. This way the daemon can do FOM1, FOM2 and
  possibly other weird things with mac addresses.
  Only round-robin mode sets up all ports to bond's address then
  enslaved.
- Extended Kconfig text

v3->v4:
- remove redundant synchronize_rcu from __team_change_mode()
- revert "set and clear of mode_ops happens per pointer, not per
  byte"
- extend comment of function __team_change_mode()

v2->v3:
- team_change_mtu() uses rcu version of list traversal to unwind
- set and clear of mode_ops happens per pointer, not per byte
- port hashlist changed to be embedded into team structure
- error branch in team_port_enter() does cleanup now
- fixed rtln->rtnl

v1->v2:
- modes are made as modules. Makes team more modular and
  extendable.
- several commenters' nitpicks found on v1 were fixed
- several other bugs were fixed.
- note I ignored Eric's comment about roundrobin port selector
  as Eric's way may be easily implemented as another mode (mode
  "random") in future.

OK I found it, I did some extra tests and believe its ready.

[PATCH net-next] ipv4: IP_PKTINFO doesnt need dst reference

When a socket uses IP_PKTINFO notifications, we currently force a dst
reference for each received skb. Reader has to access dst to get needed
information (rt_iif & rt_spec_dst) and must release dst reference.

We also forced a dst reference if skb was put in socket backlog, even
without IP_PKTINFO handling. This happens under stress/load.

We can instead store the needed information in skb->cb[], so that only
softirq handler really access dst, improving cache hit ratios.

This removes two atomic operations per packet, and false sharing as
well.

On a benchmark using a mono threaded receiver (doing only recvmsg()
calls), I can reach 720.000 pps instead of 570.000 pps.

IP_PKTINFO is typically used by DNS servers, and any multihomed aware
UDP application.

ipv4: reduce percpu needs for icmpmsg mibs

Reading /proc/net/snmp on a machine with a lot of cpus is very expensive
(can be ~88000 us).

This is because ICMPMSG MIB uses 4096 bytes per cpu, and folding values
for all possible cpus can read 16 Mbytes of memory.

ICMP messages are not considered as fast path on a typical server, and
eventually few cpus handle them anyway. We can afford an atomic
operation instead of using percpu data.

This saves 4096 bytes per cpu and per network namespace.

Fix incorrect usage of NET_IP_ALIGN

The driver used NET_IP_ALIGN to remove some additional padding inside of
the rx_fixup function. On many architectures NET_IP_ALIGN defaults to 2
which removed the correct amount of bytes.

On MCORE2-machines commit ea812ca1b06113597adcd8e70c0f84a413d97544
introduces a change which sets NET_IP_ALIGN to 0 by default. Which
triggered the bug on these machines.

This fix introduces a new RXW_PADDING define and uses this instead of
NET_IP_ALIGN. The name was taken from the original SMSC7500 driver which
is provided by SMSC.

8 years agoVFS: we need to set LOOKUP_JUMPED on mountpoint crossing
Al Viro [Mon, 7 Nov 2011 21:21:26 +0000]
VFS: we need to set LOOKUP_JUMPED on mountpoint crossing

Mountpoint crossing is similar to following procfs symlinks - we do
not get ->d_revalidate() called for dentry we have arrived at, with
unpleasant consequences for NFS4.

Simple way to reproduce the problem in mainline:

    cat >/tmp/a.c <<'EOF'
    #include <unistd.h>
    #include <fcntl.h>
    #include <stdio.h>
    main()
    {
            struct flock fl = {.l_type = F_RDLCK, .l_whence = SEEK_SET, .l_len = 1};
            if (fcntl(0, F_SETLK, &fl))
                    perror("setlk");
    }
    EOF
cc /tmp/a.c -o /tmp/test

then on nfs4:

    mount --bind file1 file2
    /tmp/test < file1 # ok
    /tmp/test < file2 # spews "setlk: No locks available"...

What happens is the missing call of ->d_revalidate() after mountpoint
crossing and that's where NFS4 would issue OPEN request to server.

The fix is simple - treat mountpoint crossing the same way we deal with
following procfs-style symlinks.  I.e.  set LOOKUP_JUMPED...

Commit 32aaeffbd4a7457bf2f7448b33b5946ff2a960eb (Merge branch
'modsplit-Oct31_2011'...) caused some build errors. Fix these
and make sure we always have export.h or module.h included
for MODULE_ and EXPORT_SYMBOL users:

$ grep -rl ^MODULE_ arch/arm/*omap*/*.c | xargs \

  arch/arm/mach-omap2/mailbox.c
  arch/arm/mach-omap2/omap-iommu.c
  arch/arm/mach-omap2/smartreflex.c

Also check we either have export.h or module.h included
for the files exporting symbols:

$ grep -rl EXPORT_SYMBOL arch/arm/*omap*/*.c | xargs \

8 years agoforcedeth: Improve stats counters
Mandeep Baines [Sat, 5 Nov 2011 14:38:23 +0000]
forcedeth: Improve stats counters

Rx byte count was off; instead use the hardware's count.  Tx packet
count was counting pre-TSO packets; instead count on-the-wire packets.
Report hardware dropped frame count as rx_fifo_errors.

- The count of transmitted packets reported by the forcedeth driver
  reports pre-TSO (TCP Segmentation Offload) packet counts and not the
  count of the number of packets sent on the wire. This change fixes
  the forcedeth driver to report the correct count. Fixed the code by
  copying the count stored in the NIC H/W to the value reported by the
  driver.

- Count rx_drop_frame errors as rx_fifo_errors:
  We see a lot of rx_drop_frame errors if we disable the rx bottom-halves
  for too long.  Normally, rx_fifo_errors would be counted in this case.
  The rx_drop_frame error count is private to forcedeth and is not
  reported by ifconfig or sysfs.  The rx_fifo_errors count is currently
  unused in the forcedeth driver.  It is reported by ifconfig as overruns.
  This change reports rx_drop_frame errors as rx_fifo_errors.

forcedeth: remove unneeded stats updates

Function ndo_get_stats() updates most of the stats from hardware
registers, making the manual updates un-needed. This change removes
these manual updates. Main exception is rx_missed_errors which needs
manual update.

Another exception is rx_packets, still updated manually in this commit
to make sure this patch doesn't change behavior of driver. This will
be addressed by a future patch.

forcedeth: fix race when unloading module

When forcedeth module is unloaded, there exists a path that can lead
to mod_timer() after del_timer_sync(), causing an oops. This patch
short-circuits this unneeded path, which originates in

8 years agowriteback: fix uninitialized task_ratelimit
Wu Fengguang [Mon, 7 Nov 2011 11:19:28 +0000]
writeback: fix uninitialized task_ratelimit

In balance_dirty_pages() task_ratelimit may be not initialized
(initialization skiped by goto pause), and then used when calling
tracing hook.

Fix it by moving the task_ratelimit assignment before goto pause.

8 years agoRevert "hvc_console: display printk messages on console."
Linus Torvalds [Mon, 7 Nov 2011 06:22:16 +0000]
Revert "hvc_console: display printk messages on console."

This reverts commit 361162459f62dc0826b82c9690a741a940f457f0.

It causes an infinite loop when booting Linux under Xen, as so:

  [    2.382984] console [hvc0] enabled
  [    2.382984] console [hvc0] enabled
  [    2.382984] console [hvc0] enabled
  ...

as reported by Konrad Rzeszutek Wilk.  And Rusty reports the same for
lguest.  He goes on to say:

   "This is not a concurrency problem: the issue seems to be that
    calling register_console() twice on the same struct console is a bad
    idea."

and Greg says he'll fix it up properly at some point later. Revert for now.
