[WIRELESS] cfg80211: New wireless config infrastructure.

This patch creates the core cfg80211 code along with some sysfs bits.
This is a stripped down version to allow mac80211 to function, but
doesn't include any configuration yet except for creating and removing
virtual interfaces.

This patch includes the nl80211 header file but it only contains the
interface types which the cfg80211 interface for creating virtual
interfaces relies on.

Michal Ostrowski [Fri, 20 Apr 2007 23:59:24 +0000]
[PPPOE]: Fix device tear-down notification.

pppoe_flush_dev() kicks all sockets bound to a device that is going down.
In doing so, locks must be taken in the right order consistently (sock lock,
followed by the pppoe_hash_lock).  However, the scan process is based on
us holding the sock lock.  So, when something is found in the scan we must
release the lock we're holding and grab the sock lock.

This patch fixes race conditions between this code and pppoe_release(),
both of which perform similar functions but would naturally prefer to grab
locks in opposing orders.  Both code paths are now going after these locks
in a consistent manner.

pppoe_hash_lock protects the contents of the "pppox_sock" objects that reside
inside the hash.  Thus, NULL'ing out the pppoe_dev field should be done
under the protection of this lock.

[PPPOE]: memory leak when socket is release()d before PPPIOCGCHAN has been called on it

below you find a patch that fixes a memory leak when a PPPoE socket is
release()d after it has been connect()ed, but before the PPPIOCGCHAN ioctl
ever has been called on it.

This is somewhat of a security problem, too, since PPPoE sockets can be
created by any user, so any user can easily allocate all the machine's
RAM to non-swappable address space and thus DoS the system.

Is there any specific reason for PPPoE sockets being available to any
unprivileged process, BTW? After all, you need a packet socket for the
discovery stage anyway, so it's unlikely that any unprivileged process
will ever need to create a PPPoE socket, no? Allocating all session IDs
for a known AC is a kind of DoS, too, after all - with Juniper ERXes,
this is really easy, actually, since they don't ever assign session ids
above 8000 ...

Florian Zumbiehl [Fri, 20 Apr 2007 23:57:27 +0000]
[PPPOE]: race between interface going down and connect()

below you find a patch that (hopefully) fixes a race between an interface
going down and a connect() to a peer on that interface. Before,
connect() would determine that an interface is up, then the interface
could go down and all entries referring to that interface in the
item_hash_table would be marked as ZOMBIEs and their references to
the device would be freed, and after that, connect() would put a new
entry into the hash table referring to the device that meanwhile is
down already - which also would cause unregister_netdevice() to wait
until the socket has been release()d.

This patch does not suffice if we are not allowed to accept connect()s
referring to a device that we already acked a NETDEV_GOING_DOWN for
(that is: all references are only guaranteed to be freed after
NETDEV_DOWN has been acknowledged, not necessarily after the
NETDEV_GOING_DOWN already). And if we are allowed to, we could avoid
looking through the hash table upon NETDEV_GOING_DOWN completely and
only do that once we get the NETDEV_DOWN ...

mostrows:
pppoe_flush_dev is called on NETDEV_GOING_DOWN and NETDEV_DOWN to deal with
this "late connect" issue.  Ideally one would hope to notify users at the
"NETDEV_GOING_DOWN" phase (just to pretend to be nice).  However, it is the
NETDEV_DOWN scan that takes all the responsibility for ensuring nobody is
hanging around at that time.

This fixes an error in the calculation of t_ipi when X converges towards
very low sending rates (between 1 and 64 bytes per second).

Although this case may not sound likely, it can be reproduced by connecting,
hitting enter (1 byte sent) and waiting for some time, during which the
nofeedback timer halves the sending rate until finally it reaches the region
1..64 bytes/sec. Computing X is handled correctly (tested separately); but by
dividing X _before_ entering the calculation of t_ipi, X becomes zero as
a result.  This in turn triggers a BUG condition caught in scaled_div().

Fixed by replacing with equivalent statement and explicit typecast for good
measure.

Calculation verified and effect of patch tested - reduced never below 1 byte
per 64 seconds afterwards, i.e. not allowing divide-by-zero.

Herbert Xu [Mon, 9 Apr 2007 18:59:07 +0000]
[NET]: Use csum_start offset instead of skb_transport_header

The skb transport pointer is currently used to specify the start
of the checksum region for transmit checksum offload.  Unfortunately,
the same pointer is also used during receive side processing.

This creates a problem when we want to retransmit a received
packet with partial checksums since the skb transport pointer
would be overwritten.

This patch solves this problem by creating a new 16-bit csum_start
offset value to replace the skb transport header for the purpose
of checksums.  This offset is calculated from skb->head so that
it does not have to change when skb->data changes.

No extra space is required since csum_offset itself fits within
a 16-bit word so we can use the other 16 bits for csum_start.

For backwards compatibility, just before we push a packet with
partial checksums off into the device driver, we set the skb
transport header to what it would have been under the old scheme.

then write a get_stats() function to return them.  It would be nice if
this were done by default.

1) Add a new "stats" field to "struct net_device".
2) Add a new feature field to say "this driver uses the internal one"
3) Have a default "get_stats" which returns NULL if that feature not set.
4) Change callers to check result of get_stats call for NULL, not if
   ->get_stats is set.

This should not break backwards compatibility with older drivers, yet
allow modern drivers to shed some boilerplate code.

Lightly tested: works for a modified lguest network driver.

[NET] fib_rules: Flush route cache after rule modifications

The results of FIB rules lookups are cached in the routing cache
except for IPv6 as no such cache exists. So far, it was the
responsibility of the user to flush the cache after modifying any
rules. This lead to many false bug reports due to misunderstanding
of this concept.

This patch automatically flushes the route cache after inserting
or deleting a rule.

Herbert Xu [Tue, 27 Mar 2007 06:22:20 +0000]
[NET]: Allow forwarding of ip_summed except CHECKSUM_COMPLETE

Right now Xen has a horrible hack that lets it forward packets with
partial checksums.  One of the reasons that CHECKSUM_PARTIAL and
CHECKSUM_COMPLETE were added is so that we can get rid of this hack
(where it creates two extra bits in the skbuff to essentially mirror
ip_summed without being destroyed by the forwarding code).

I had forgotten that I've already gone through all the deivce drivers
last time around to make sure that they're looking at ip_summed ==
CHECKSUM_PARTIAL rather than ip_summed != 0 on transmit.  In any case,
I've now done that again so it should definitely be safe.

Unfortunately nobody has yet added any code to update CHECKSUM_COMPLETE
values on forward so we I'm setting that to CHECKSUM_NONE.  This should
be safe to remove for bridging but I'd like to check that code path
first.

So here is the patch that lets us get rid of the hack by preserving
ip_summed (mostly) on forwarded packets.

[NET] fib_rules: Mark rules detached from the device

Rules which match against device names in their selector can
remain while the device itself disappears, in fact the device

This patch adds the flag FIB_RULE_DEV_DETACHED which is set
towards userspace when a rule contains a device match which
is unresolved at the moment. This eases spotting the reason

[NET] fib_rules: goto rule action

This patch adds a new rule action FR_ACT_GOTO which allows
to skip a set of rules by jumping to another rule. The rule
to jump to is specified via the FRA_GOTO attribute which
carries a rule preference.

Referring to a rule which doesn't exists is explicitely allowed.
Such goto rules are marked with the flag FIB_RULE_UNRESOLVED
and will act like a rule with a non-matching selector. The rule
will become functional as soon as its target is present.

The goto action enables performance optimizations by reducing
the average number of rules that have to be passed per lookup.

Example:
0:      from all lookup local
40:     not from all to 192.168.23.128 goto 32766
