Herbert Xu [Fri, 9 Jun 2006 23:10:40 +0000]
[NET]: Clean up skb_linearize

The linearisation operation doesn't need to be super-optimised.  So we can
replace __skb_linearize with __pskb_pull_tail which does the same thing but
is more general.

Also, most users of skb_linearize end up testing whether the skb is linear
or not so it helps to make skb_linearize do just that.

Some callers of skb_linearize also use it to copy cloned data, so it's
useful to have a new function skb_linearize_cow to copy the data if it's
either non-linear or cloned.

Last but not least, I've removed the gfp argument since nobody uses it
anymore.  If it's ever needed we can easily add it back.

13 years ago[NET]: Add netif_tx_lock
Herbert Xu [Fri, 9 Jun 2006 19:20:56 +0000]
[NET]: Add netif_tx_lock

Various drivers use xmit_lock internally to synchronise with their
transmission routines.  They do so without setting xmit_lock_owner.
This is fine as long as netpoll is not in use.

With netpoll it is possible for deadlocks to occur if xmit_lock_owner
isn't set.  This is because if a printk occurs while xmit_lock is held
and xmit_lock_owner is not set can cause netpoll to attempt to take
xmit_lock recursively.

While it is possible to resolve this by getting netpoll to use
trylock, it is suboptimal because netpoll's sole objective is to
maximise the chance of getting the printk out on the wire.  So
delaying or dropping the message is to be avoided as much as possible.

So the only alternative is to always set xmit_lock_owner.  The
following patch does this by introducing the netif_tx_lock family of
functions that take care of setting/unsetting xmit_lock_owner.

I renamed xmit_lock to _xmit_lock to indicate that it should not be
used directly.  I didn't provide irq versions of the netif_tx_lock
functions since xmit_lock is meant to be a BH-disabling lock.

This is pretty much a straight text substitution except for a small
bug fix in winbond.  It currently uses
netif_stop_queue/spin_unlock_wait to stop transmission.  This is
unsafe as an IRQ can potentially wake up the queue.  So it is safer to
use netif_tx_disable.

The hamradio bits used spin_lock_irq but it is unnecessary as
xmit_lock must never be taken in an IRQ handler.

James Morris [Fri, 9 Jun 2006 07:33:33 +0000]
[SECMARK]: Add new packet controls to SELinux

Add new per-packet access controls to SELinux, replacing the old
packet controls.

Packets are labeled with the iptables SECMARK and CONNSECMARK targets,
then security policy for the packets is enforced with these controls.

To allow for a smooth transition to the new controls, the old code is
still present, but not active by default.  To restore previous
behavior, the old controls may be activated at runtime by writing a
'1' to /selinux/compat_net, and also via the kernel boot parameter
selinux_compat_net.  Switching between the network control models
requires the security load_policy permission.  The old controls will
probably eventually be removed and any continued use is discouraged.

With this patch, the new secmark controls for SElinux are disabled by
default, so existing behavior is entirely preserved, and the user is
not affected at all.

It also provides a config option to enable the secmark controls by
default (which can always be overridden at boot and runtime).  It is
also noted in the kconfig help that the user will need updated
userspace if enabling secmark controls for SELinux and that they'll
probably need the SECMARK and CONNMARK targets, and conntrack protocol
helpers, although such decisions are beyond the scope of kernel
configuration.

Catherine Zhang [Fri, 9 Jun 2006 06:39:49 +0000]
[LSM-IPsec]: SELinux Authorize

This patch contains a fix for the previous patch that adds security
contexts to IPsec policies and security associations.  In the previous
patch, no authorization (besides the check for write permissions to
SAD and SPD) is required to delete IPsec policies and security
assocations with security contexts.  Thus a user authorized to change
SAD and SPD can bypass the IPsec policy authorization by simply
deleteing policies with security contexts.  To fix this security hole,
an additional authorization check is added for removing security
policies and security associations with security contexts.

Note that if no security context is supplied on add or present on
policy to be deleted, the SELinux module allows the change
unconditionally.  The hook is called on deletion when no context is
present, which we may want to change.  At present, I left it up to the
module.

LSM changes:

The patch adds two new LSM hooks: xfrm_policy_delete and
xfrm_state_delete.  The new hooks are necessary to authorize deletion
of IPsec policies that have security contexts.  The existing hooks
xfrm_policy_free and xfrm_state_free lack the context to do the
authorization, so I decided to split authorization of deletion and
memory management of security data, as is typical in the LSM
interface.

Use:

The new delete hooks are checked when xfrm_policy or xfrm_state are
deleted by either the xfrm_user interface (xfrm_get_policy,
xfrm_del_sa) or the pfkey interface (pfkey_spddelete, pfkey_delete).

SELinux changes:

The new policy_delete and state_delete functions are added.

TCP Veno module is a new congestion control module to improve TCP

the enhancement of TCP Reno/Sack congestion control algorithm by using

significantly reduces "blind" reduction of TCP window regardless of

 TCP Low Priority is a distributed algorithm whose goal is to utilize only
 the excess network bandwidth as compared to the ``fair share`` of
 bandwidth as targeted by TCP. Available from:
   http://www.ece.rice.edu/~akuzma/Doc/akuzma/TCP-LP.pdf

Original Author:
 Aleksandar Kuzmanovic <akuzma@northwestern.edu>

See http://www-ece.rice.edu/networks/TCP-LP/ for their implementation.
As of 2.6.13, Linux supports pluggable congestion control algorithms.
Due to the limitation of the API, we take the following changes from
the original TCP-LP implementation:
 o We use newReno in most core CA handling. Only add some checking
   within cong_avoid.
 o Error correcting in remote HZ, therefore remote HZ will be keeped
   on checking and updating.
 o Handling calculation of One-Way-Delay (OWD) within rtt_sample, sicne
   OWD have a similar meaning as RTT. Also correct the buggy formular.
 o Handle reaction for Early Congestion Indication (ECI) within
   pkts_acked, as mentioned within pseudo code.
 o OWD is handled in relative format, where local time stamp will in

The number of locks used to manage afinfo structures can easily be reduced

observation that the write locks are only held by module insertion/removal
which are very rare events so there is no need to further differentiate
between the insertion of modules like ipv6 versus esp6.

The removal of the read locks in xfrm4_policy.c/xfrm6_policy.c might look
suspicious at first.  However, after you realise that nobody ever takes
the corresponding write lock you'll feel better :)

As far as I can gather it's an attempt to guard against the removal of
the corresponding modules.  Since neither module can be unloaded at all
we can leave it to whoever fixes up IPv6 unloading :)

[TG3]: Add recovery logic when MMIOs are re-ordered

Add recovery logic when we suspect that the system is re-ordering
MMIOs. Re-ordered MMIOs to the send mailbox can cause bogus tx
completions and hit BUG_ON() in the tx completion path.

tg3 already has logic to handle re-ordered MMIOs by flushing the MMIOs
that must be strictly ordered (such as the send mailbox).  Determining
when to enable the flush is currently a manual process of adding known
chipsets to a list.

The new code replaces the BUG_ON() in the tx completion path with the
call to tg3_tx_recover(). It will set the TG3_FLAG_MBOX_WRITE_REORDER
flag and reset the chip later in the workqueue to recover and start
flushing MMIOs to the mailbox.

A message to report the problem will be printed. We will then decide
whether or not to add the host bridge to the list of chipsets that do
re-ordering.

We may add some additional code later to print the host bridge's ID so
that the user can report it more easily.

The assumption that re-ordering can only happen on x86 systems is also
removed.

[PATCH] arm_timer: remove a racy and obsolete PF_EXITING check

arm_timer() checks PF_EXITING to prevent BUG_ON(->exit_state)
in run_posix_cpu_timers().

However, for some reason it does so only for CPUCLOCK_PERTHREAD
case (which is imho wrong).

Also, this check is not reliable, PF_EXITING could be set on
another cpu without any locks/barriers just after the check,
so it can't prevent from attaching the timer to the exiting
task.

The previous patch makes this check unneeded.

Oleg Nesterov [Thu, 15 Jun 2006 16:11:43 +0000]
[PATCH] run_posix_cpu_timers: remove a bogus BUG_ON()

do_exit() clears ->it_##clock##_expires, but nothing prevents
another cpu to attach the timer to exiting process after that.
arm_timer() tries to protect against this race, but the check
is racy.

After exit_notify() does 'write_unlock_irq(&tasklist_lock)' and
before do_exit() calls 'schedule() local timer interrupt can find
tsk->exit_state != 0. If that state was EXIT_DEAD (or another cpu
does sys_wait4) interrupted task has ->signal == NULL.

At this moment exiting task has no pending cpu timers, they were
cleanuped in __exit_signal()->posix_cpu_timers_exit{,_group}(),
so we can just return from irq.

[PATCH] check_process_timers: fix possible lockup

If the local timer interrupt happens just after do_exit() sets PF_EXITING
(and before it clears ->it_xxx_expires) run_posix_cpu_timers() will call
check_process_timers() with tasklist_lock + ->siglock held and

check_process_timers:

t = tsk;
do {
....

do {
t = next_thread(t);
} while (unlikely(t->flags & PF_EXITING));
} while (t != tsk);

the outer loop will never stop.

Actually, the window is bigger.  Another process can attach the timer
after ->it_xxx_expires was cleared (see the next commit) and the 'if
(PF_EXITING)' check in arm_timer() is racy (see the one after that).

if we discovered that a read write open was not possible and the open
flags required a writable open, we just returned -EROFS without calling
the driver's release routine.   This seems to work for most cdrom drivers,
but breaks the Powerpc iSeries virtual cdrom rather badly.

This just inserts the release call in the error path to balance the call
to "->open()" done by "open_for_data()".
