[CCID2]: Redundant debugging output

This reduces the amount of redundant debugging messages:

 * pipe/cwnd are printed in both tx_send_packet() and tx_packet_sent().
   Both functions are called immediately after one another, so one occurrence is sufficient.

 * Since tx_packet_sent() prints pipe/cwnd already, the second printk for pipe is redundant.

 * In tx_packet_sent() the check_sanity function is called twice (at the begin and at the end).

Gerrit Renker [Sat, 24 Nov 2007 23:58:33 +0000]
[CCID2]: Disable broken Ack Ratio adaptation algorithm

This comments out a problematic section comprising a half-finished algorithm:

 - The variable `ccid2hctx_ackloss' is never initialised to a value different from 0 and
   hence in fact is a read-only constant.
 - The `arsent' variable counts packets other than Acks (it is incremented for every packet),
   and there is no test for Ack Loss.
 - The concept of counting Acks as such leads to a complex calculation, and the calculation
   at the moment is inconsistent with this concept.
   The problem is that the number of Acks - rather than the number of windows - is counted,
   which leads to a complex (cubic/quadratic) expression - this is not even implemented.

In its current state, the commented-out algorithm interfers with normal processing by
changing Ack Ratio incorrectly, and at the wrong times.

A new algorithm is necessary, which will not necessarily use the same variables as used by
the unfinished one; hence the old variables have been removed.

12 years ago[CCID2]: Deadlock and spurious timeouts when Ack Ratio > cwnd
Gerrit Renker [Sat, 24 Nov 2007 23:40:24 +0000]
[CCID2]: Deadlock and spurious timeouts when Ack Ratio > cwnd

This patch removes a bug in the current code. I agree with Andrea's comment
that there is a problem here but the way it is treated does not fix it.

The problem is that whenever Ack Ratio > cwnd, starvation/deadlock occurs:
 * the receiver will not send an Ack until (Ack Ratio - cwnd) data packets
   have arrived;
 * the sender will not send any data packet before the receipt of an Ack
   advances the send window.
The only way that the connection then progresses was via RTO timeout. In one
extreme case (bulk transfer), it was observed that this happened for every single
packet; i.e. hundreds of packets, each a RTO timeout of 1..3 seconds apart:
a transfer which normally would take a fraction of a second thus grew to
several minutes.

The solution taken by this approach is to observe the relation

                   "Ack Ratio <= cwnd"

by using the constraint (1) from RFC 4341, 6.1.2; i.e. set

                 Ack Ratio = ceil(cwnd / 2)

and update it whenever either Ack Ratio or cwnd change. This ensures that
the deadlock problem can not arise.

12 years ago[DCCP]: Promote CCID2 as default CCID
Gerrit Renker [Wed, 21 Nov 2007 12:09:56 +0000]
[DCCP]: Promote CCID2 as default CCID

This patch addresses the following problems:

 1. DCCP relies for its proper functioning on having at least one CCID module
    enabled (as in TCP plugable congestion control). Currently it is possible to
    disable both CCIDs and thus leave the DCCP module in a compiled, but entirely
    non-functional state: no sockets can be created when no CCID is available.
    Furthermore, the protocol is (again like TCP) not intended to be used without
    CCIDs. Last, a non-empty CCID list is needed for doing CCID feature negotiation.

 2. Internally the default CCID that is advertised by the Linux host is set to CCID2
    (DCCPF_INITIAL_CCID in include/linux/dccp.h). Disabling CCID2 in the Kconfig
    menu without changing the defaults leads to a failure `module not found' when
    trying to load the dccp module (which internally tries to load the default CCID).

 3. The specification (RFC 4340, sec. 10) treats CCID2 somewhat like a
    `minimum common denominator'; the specification says that:

    * "New connections start with CCID 2 for both endpoints"

    * "A DCCP implementation intended for general use, such as an implementation in a
       general-purpose operating system kernel, SHOULD implement at least CCID 2.
       The intent is to make CCID 2 broadly available for interoperability [...]"

    Providing CCID2 as minimum-required CCID (like Reno/Cubic in TCP) thus seems reasonable.

Hence this patch automatically selects CCID2 when DCCP is enabled. Documentation also added.

Discussions with Ian McDonald on this subject are gratefully acknowledged.

12 years ago[DCCP]: Honour and make use of shutdown option set by user
Gerrit Renker [Wed, 21 Nov 2007 11:56:48 +0000]
[DCCP]: Honour and make use of shutdown option set by user

This extends the DCCP socket API by honouring any shutdown(2) option set by the user.
The behaviour is, as much as possible, made consistent with the API for TCP's shutdown.

This patch exploits the information provided by the user via the socket API to reduce
processing costs:
 * if the read end is closed (SHUT_RD), it is not necessary to deliver to input CCID;
 * if the write end is closed (SHUT_WR), the same idea applies, but with a difference -
   as long as the TX queue has not been drained, we need to receive feedback to keep
   congestion-control rates up to date. Hence SHUT_WR is honoured only after the last
   packet (under congestion control) has been sent;
 * although SHUT_RDWR seems nonsensical, it is nevertheless supported in the same manner
   as for TCP (and agrees with test for SHUTDOWN_MASK in dccp_poll() in net/dccp/proto.c).

Furthermore, most of the code already honours the sk_shutdown flags (dccp_recvmsg() for
instance sets the read length to 0 if SHUT_RD had been called); CCID handling is now added
to this by the present patch.

There will also no longer be any delivery when the socket is in the final stages, i.e. when
one of dccp_close(), dccp_fin(), or dccp_done() has been called - which is fine since at
that stage the connection is its final stages.

Motivation and background are on http://www.erg.abdn.ac.uk/users/gerrit/dccp/notes/shutdown

A FIXME has been added to notify the other end if SHUT_RD has been set (RFC 4340, 11.7).

Note: There is a comment in inet_shutdown() in net/ipv4/af_inet.c which asks to "make
      sure the socket is a TCP socket". This should probably be extended to mean
      `TCP or DCCP socket' (the code is also used by UDP and raw sockets).

[CCID3]: Ignore trivial amounts of elapsed time

This patch fixes a previously undiscovered bug; the problem is in computing
the elapsed time as the time between `receiving' the packet (i.e. skb enters
CCID module) and sending feedback:

     - there is no layer-processing, queueing, or delay involved,
     - hence the elapsed time is in the order of 1 function call
     - this is in the dimension of maximally 50..100usec
     - which renders the use of elapsed time almost entirely useless.

The fix is simply to ignore such trivial amounts of elapsed time.

As a further advantage, the now useless elapsed_time field can be removed from
the socket, which reduces the socket structure by another four bytes.

[PATCH] IPV4 : Move ip route cache flush (secret_rebuild) from softirq to workqueue

Every 600 seconds (ip_rt_secret_interval), a softirq flush of the
whole ip route cache is triggered. On loaded machines, this can starve
softirq for many seconds and can eventually crash.

This patch moves this flush to a workqueue context, using the worker
we intoduced in commit 39c90ece7565f5c47110c2fa77409d7a9478bd5b (IPV4:
Convert rt_check_expire() from softirq processing to workqueue.)

Also, immediate flushes (echo 0 >/proc/sys/net/ipv4/route/flush) are
using rt_do_flush() helper function, wich take attention to
rescheduling.

Next step will be to handle delayed flushes
("echo -1 >/proc/sys/net/ipv4/route/flush" or "ip route flush cache")

mac80211: Accept auto txpower setting

This changes the SIWTXPOWER ioctl to also accept a txpower setting of
"automatic". Since mac80211 currently cannot tell drivers to automatically
adjust tx power, we select the tx power level of the current channel. While
this is kind of a hack, it certainly saves some iwconfig users from headaches.

12 years ago[TCP]: Rewrite SACK block processing & sack_recv_cache use
Ilpo Järvinen [Fri, 16 Nov 2007 03:50:37 +0000]
[TCP]: Rewrite SACK block processing & sack_recv_cache use

Key points of this patch are:

  - In case new SACK information is advance only type, no skb
    processing below previously discovered highest point is done
  - Optimize cases below highest point too since there's no need
    to always go up to highest point (which is very likely still
    present in that SACK), this is not entirely true though
    because I'm dropping the fastpath_skb_hint which could
    previously optimize those cases even better. Whether that's
    significant, I'm not too sure.

Currently it will provide skipping by walking. Combined with
RB-tree, all skipping would become fast too regardless of window
size (can be done incrementally later).

Previously a number of cases in TCP SACK processing fails to
take advantage of costly stored information in sack_recv_cache,
most importantly, expected events such as cumulative ACK and new
hole ACKs. Processing on such ACKs result in rather long walks
building up latencies (which easily gets nasty when window is
huge). Those latencies are often completely unnecessary
compared with the amount of _new_ information received, usually
for cumulative ACK there's no new information at all, yet TCP
walks whole queue unnecessary potentially taking a number of
costly cache misses on the way, etc.!

Since the inclusion of highest_sack, there's a lot information
that is very likely redundant (SACK fastpath hint stuff,
fackets_out, highest_sack), though there's no ultimate guarantee
that they'll remain the same whole the time (in all unearthly
scenarios). Take advantage of this knowledge here and drop
fastpath hint and use direct access to highest SACKed skb as
a replacement.

Effectively "special cased" fastpath is dropped. This change
adds some complexity to introduce better coveraged "fastpath",
though the added complexity should make TCP behave more cache
friendly.

The current ACK's SACK blocks are compared against each cached
block individially and only ranges that are new are then scanned
by the high constant walk. For other parts of write queue, even
when in previously known part of the SACK blocks, a faster skip
function is used (if necessary at all). In addition, whenever
possible, TCP fast-forwards to highest_sack skb that was made
available by an earlier patch. In typical case, no other things
but this fast-forward and mandatory markings after that occur
making the access pattern quite similar to the former fastpath
"special case".

DSACKs are special case that must always be walked.

The local to recv_sack_cache copying could be more intelligent
w.r.t DSACKs which are likely to be there only once but that
is left to a separate patch.

12 years ago[TCP]: non-FACK SACK follows conservative SACK loss recovery
Ilpo Järvinen [Fri, 16 Nov 2007 03:39:31 +0000]
[TCP]: non-FACK SACK follows conservative SACK loss recovery

Many assumptions that are true when no reordering or other
strange events happen are not a part of the RFC3517. FACK
implementation is based on such assumptions. Previously (before
the rewrite) the non-FACK SACK was basically doing fast rexmit
and then it times out all skbs when first cumulative ACK arrives,
which cannot really be called SACK based recovery :-).

RFC3517 SACK disables these things:
- Per SKB timeouts & head timeout entry to recovery
- Marking at least one skb while in recovery (RFC3517 does this
  only for the fast retransmission but not for the other skbs
  when cumulative ACKs arrive in the recovery)
- Sacktag's loss detection flavors B and C (see comment before
  tcp_sacktag_write_queue)

This does not implement the "last resort" rule 3 of NextSeg, which
allows retransmissions also when not enough SACK blocks have yet
arrived above a segment for IsLost to return true [RFC3517].

The implementation differs from RFC3517 in these points:
- Rate-halving is used instead of FlightSize / 2
- Instead of using dupACKs to trigger the recovery, the number
  of SACK blocks is used as FACK does with SACK blocks+holes
  (which provides more accurate number). It seems that the
  difference can affect negatively only if the receiver does not
  generate SACK blocks at all even though it claimed to be
  SACK-capable.
- Dupthresh is not a constant one. Dynamical adjustments include
  both holes and sacked segments (equal to what FACK has) due to
  complexity involved in determining the number sacked blocks
  between highest_sack and the reordered segment. Thus it's will
  be an over-estimate.

Implementation note:

tcp_clean_rtx_queue doesn't need a lost_cnt tweak because head
skb at that point cannot be SACKED_ACKED (nor would such
situation last for long enough to cause problems).

Ilpo Järvinen [Fri, 16 Nov 2007 03:35:11 +0000]
[TCP]: Extend reordering detection to cover CA_Loss partially

This implements more accurately what is stated in sacktag's
overall comment:

  "Both of these heuristics are not used in Loss state, when
   we cannot account for retransmits accurately."

When CA_Loss state is entered, the state changer ensures that
undo_marker is only set if no TCPCB_RETRANS skbs were found,
thus having non-zero undo_marker in CA_Loss basically tells
that the R-bits still accurately reflect the current state
of TCP.

This patch adds support for async resumptions on input.  To do so, the
transform would return -EINPROGRESS and subsequently invoke the
function xfrm_input_resume to resume processing.

12 years ago[IPSEC]: Remove nhoff from xfrm_input
Herbert Xu [Tue, 20 Nov 2007 02:47:58 +0000]
[IPSEC]: Remove nhoff from xfrm_input

The nhoff field isn't actually necessary in xfrm_input.  For tunnel
mode transforms we now throw away the output IP header so it makes no
sense to fill in the nexthdr field.  For transport mode we can now let
the function transport_finish do the setting and it knows where the
nexthdr field is.

The only other thing that needs the nexthdr field to be set is the
header extraction code.  However, we can simply move the protocol
extraction out of the generic header extraction.

We want to minimise the amount of info we have to carry around between
transforms as this simplifies the resumption process for async crypto.

12 years ago[IPSEC]: Make x->lastused an unsigned long
Herbert Xu [Wed, 14 Nov 2007 05:47:08 +0000]
[IPSEC]: Make x->lastused an unsigned long

Currently x->lastused is u64 which means that it cannot be
read/written atomically on all architectures.  David Miller observed
that the value stored in it is only an unsigned long which is always
atomic.

So based on his suggestion this patch changes the internal
representation from u64 to unsigned long while the user-interface
still refers to it as u64.

[IPSEC]: Move state lock into x->type->input

This patch releases the lock on the state before calling
x->type->input.  It also adds the lock to the spots where they're
currently needed.

Most of those places (all except mip6) are expected to disappear with
async crypto.

[IPSEC]: Move integrity stat collection into xfrm_input

Similar to the moving out of the replay processing on the output, this
patch moves the integrity stat collectin from x->type->input into
xfrm_input.

This would eventually allow transforms such as AH/ESP to be lockless.

The error value EBADMSG (currently unused in the crypto layer) is used
to indicate a failed integrity check.  In future this error can be
directly returned by the crypto layer once we switch to aead
algorithms.

12 years ago[IPSEC]: Store xfrm states in security path directly

[IPSEC]: Store xfrm states in security path directly

As it is xfrm_input first collects a list of xfrm states on the stack
before storing them in the packet's security path just before it
returns.  For async crypto, this construction presents an obstacle
since we may need to leave the loop after each transform.

In fact, it's much easier to just skip the stack completely and always
store to the security path.  This is proven by the fact that this
patch actually shrinks the code.

[IPSEC]: Merge most of the input path

As part of the work on asynchronous cryptographic operations, we need
to be able to resume from the spot where they occur.  As such, it
helps if we isolate them to one spot.

This patch moves most of the remaining family-specific processing into
the common input code.
