[DCCP]: Do not process a packet twice when it's not in state DCCP_OPEN.

When packets are received, the connection is either in DCCP_OPEN
[fast-path] or it isn't.  If it's not [e.g. DCCP_PARTOPEN] upper
layers will perform sanity checks and parse options.  If it is in
DCCP_OPEN, dccp_rcv_established() will do it.  It is important not to
re-parse options in dccp_rcv_established() when it is not called from
the fast-path.  Else, fore example, the ack vector will be added twice
and the CCID will see the packet twice.

The solution is to always enfore sanity checks from the upper layers.
When packets arrive in the fast-path, sanity checks will be performed
before calling dccp_rcv_established().

Note(acme): I rewrote the patch to achieve the same result but keeping
dccp_rcv_established with the previous semantics and having it split
into __dccp_rcv_established, that doesn't does do any sanity check,

[NET]: Speed up __alloc_skb()

From: Benjamin LaHaise <bcrl@kvack.org>

In __alloc_skb(), the use of skb_shinfo() which casts a u8 * to the
shared info structure results in gcc being forced to do a reload of the
pointer since it has no information on possible aliasing.  Fix this by
using a pointer to refer to skb_shared_info.

By initializing skb_shared_info sequentially, the write combining buffers
can reduce the number of memory transactions to a single write.  Reorder
the initialization in __alloc_skb() to match the structure definition.
There is also an alignment issue on 64 bit systems with skb_shared_info
by converting nr_frags to a short everything packs up nicely.

Also, pass the slab cache pointer according to the fclone flag instead
of using two almost identical function calls.

This raises bw_unix performance up to a peak of 707KB/s when combined
with the spinlock patch.  It should help other networking protocols, too.

I made a global stubstitute to change all existing occurences to make

Here is a new feature for netem in 2.6.16. It adds the ability to
randomly corrupt packets with netem. A version was done by
Hagen Paul Pfeifer, but I redid it to handle the cases of backwards
compatibility with netlink interface and presence of hardware checksum
offload. It is useful for testing hardware offload in devices.

Speed of a interface may not be available until carrier
is detected in the case of autonegotiation. To get the correct value
we need to recheck speed after carrier event.  But the check needs to

separate cache lines)

(located in the node of the iptables process), we now allocate an area

Trent Jaeger [Wed, 14 Dec 2005 07:12:40 +0000]
[LSM-IPSec]: Per-packet access control.

This patch series implements per packet access control via the
extension of the Linux Security Modules (LSM) interface by hooks in
the XFRM and pfkey subsystems that leverage IPSec security
associations to label packets.  Extensions to the SELinux LSM are
included that leverage the patch for this purpose.

This patch implements the changes necessary to the SELinux LSM to
create, deallocate, and use security contexts for policies
(xfrm_policy) and security associations (xfrm_state) that enable
control of a socket's ability to send and receive packets.

Patch purpose:

The patch is designed to enable the SELinux LSM to implement access
control on individual packets based on the strongly authenticated
IPSec security association.  Such access controls augment the existing
ones in SELinux based on network interface and IP address.  The former
are very coarse-grained, and the latter can be spoofed.  By using
IPSec, the SELinux can control access to remote hosts based on
cryptographic keys generated using the IPSec mechanism.  This enables
access control on a per-machine basis or per-application if the remote
machine is running the same mechanism and trusted to enforce the
access control policy.

Patch design approach:

The patch's main function is to authorize a socket's access to a IPSec
policy based on their security contexts.  Since the communication is
implemented by a security association, the patch ensures that the
security association's negotiated and used have the same security
context.  The patch enables allocation and deallocation of such
security contexts for policies and security associations.  It also
enables copying of the security context when policies are cloned.
Lastly, the patch ensures that packets that are sent without using a
IPSec security assocation with a security context are allowed to be
sent in that manner.

A presentation available at
www.selinux-symposium.org/2005/presentations/session2/2-3-jaeger.pdf
from the SELinux symposium describes the overall approach.

Patch implementation details:

The function which authorizes a socket to perform a requested
operation (send/receive) on a IPSec policy (xfrm_policy) is
selinux_xfrm_policy_lookup.  The Netfilter and rcv_skb hooks ensure
that if a IPSec SA with a securit y association has not been used,
then the socket is allowed to send or receive the packet,
respectively.

The patch implements SELinux function for allocating security contexts
when policies (xfrm_policy) are created via the pfkey or xfrm_user
interfaces via selinux_xfrm_policy_alloc.  When a security association
is built, SELinux allocates the security context designated by the
XFRM subsystem which is based on that of the authorized policy via
selinux_xfrm_state_alloc.

When a xfrm_policy is cloned, the security context of that policy, if
any, is copied to the clone via selinux_xfrm_policy_clone.

When a xfrm_policy or xfrm_state is freed, its security context, if
any is also freed at selinux_xfrm_policy_free or
selinux_xfrm_state_free.

Testing:

The SELinux authorization function is tested using ipsec-tools.  We
created policies and security associations with particular security
contexts and added SELinux access control policy entries to verify the
authorization decision.  We also made sure that packets for which no
security context was supplied (which either did or did not use
security associations) were authorized using an unlabelled context.

13 years ago[LSM-IPSec]: Security association restriction.
Trent Jaeger [Wed, 14 Dec 2005 07:12:27 +0000]
[LSM-IPSec]: Security association restriction.

This patch series implements per packet access control via the
extension of the Linux Security Modules (LSM) interface by hooks in
the XFRM and pfkey subsystems that leverage IPSec security
associations to label packets.  Extensions to the SELinux LSM are
included that leverage the patch for this purpose.

This patch implements the changes necessary to the XFRM subsystem,
pfkey interface, ipv4/ipv6, and xfrm_user interface to restrict a
socket to use only authorized security associations (or no security
association) to send/receive network packets.

Patch purpose:

The patch is designed to enable access control per packets based on
the strongly authenticated IPSec security association.  Such access
controls augment the existing ones based on network interface and IP
address.  The former are very coarse-grained, and the latter can be
spoofed.  By using IPSec, the system can control access to remote
hosts based on cryptographic keys generated using the IPSec mechanism.
This enables access control on a per-machine basis or per-application
if the remote machine is running the same mechanism and trusted to
enforce the access control policy.

Patch design approach:

The overall approach is that policy (xfrm_policy) entries set by
user-level programs (e.g., setkey for ipsec-tools) are extended with a
security context that is used at policy selection time in the XFRM
subsystem to restrict the sockets that can send/receive packets via
security associations (xfrm_states) that are built from those
policies.

A presentation available at
www.selinux-symposium.org/2005/presentations/session2/2-3-jaeger.pdf
from the SELinux symposium describes the overall approach.

Patch implementation details:

On output, the policy retrieved (via xfrm_policy_lookup or
xfrm_sk_policy_lookup) must be authorized for the security context of
the socket and the same security context is required for resultant
security association (retrieved or negotiated via racoon in
ipsec-tools).  This is enforced in xfrm_state_find.

On input, the policy retrieved must also be authorized for the socket
(at __xfrm_policy_check), and the security context of the policy must
also match the security association being used.

The patch has virtually no impact on packets that do not use IPSec.
The existing Netfilter (outgoing) and LSM rcv_skb hooks are used as
before.

Also, if IPSec is used without security contexts, the impact is
minimal.  The LSM must allow such policies to be selected for the
combination of socket and remote machine, but subsequent IPSec
processing proceeds as in the original case.

Testing:

The pfkey interface is tested using the ipsec-tools.  ipsec-tools have
been modified (a separate ipsec-tools patch is available for version
0.5) that supports assignment of xfrm_policy entries and security
associations with security contexts via setkey and the negotiation
using the security contexts via racoon.

The xfrm_user interface is tested via ad hoc programs that set
security contexts.  These programs are also available from me, and
contain programs for setting, getting, and deleting policy for testing
this interface.  Testing of sa functions was done by tracing kernel
behavior.

[PATCH] Avoid namespace pollution in <asm/param.h>

In commit 3D59121003721a8fad11ee72e646fd9d3076b5679c, the x86 and x86-64
<asm/param.h> was changed to include <linux/config.h> for the

However, asm/param.h is sometimes used in userland (it is included
indirectly from <sys/param.h>), so your commit pollutes the userland
namespace with tons of CONFIG_FOO macros.  This greatly confuses
software packages (such as BusyBox) which use CONFIG_FOO macros
themselves to control the inclusion of optional features.

[PATCH] powerpc: more g5 overtemp problem fix

Some G5s still occasionally experience shutdowns due to overtemp
conditions despite the recent fix. After analyzing logs from such
machines, it appears that the overtemp code is a bit too quick at
shutting the machine down when reaching the critical temperature (tmax +
8) and doesn't leave the fan enough time to actually cool it down. This
happens if the temperature of a CPU suddenly rises too high in a very
short period of time, or occasionally on boot (that is the CPUs are
already overtemp by the time the driver loads).

This patches makes the code a bit more relaxed, leaving a few seconds to
the fans to do their job before kicking the machine shutown.

[PATCH] Fix false old value return of sysctl

For the sysctl syscall, if the user wants to get the old value of a
sysctl entry and set a new value for it in the same syscall, the old
value is always overwritten by the new value if the sysctl entry is of
string type and if the user sets its strategy to sysctl_string.  This
issue lies in the strategy being run twice if the strategy is set to
sysctl_string, the general strategy sysctl_string always returns 0 if
success.

Such strategy routines as sysctl_jiffies and sysctl_jiffies_ms return 1
because they do read and write for the sysctl entry.

The strategy routine sysctl_string return 0 although it actually read
and write the sysctl entry.

According to my analysis, if a strategy routine do read and write, it
should return 1, if it just does some necessary check but not read and
write, it should return 0, for example sysctl_intvec.
