11 years agonl80211: Optional IEs into scan request
Jouni Malinen [Mon, 16 Feb 2009 17:39:13 +0000]
nl80211: Optional IEs into scan request

This extends the NL80211_CMD_TRIGGER_SCAN command to allow applications
to specify a set of information element(s) to be added into Probe
Request frames with NL80211_ATTR_IE. This provides support for the
MLME-SCAN.request primitive parameter VendorSpecificInfo and can be
used, e.g., to implement WPS scanning.

Reinette Chatre [Fri, 13 Feb 2009 19:51:19 +0000]
iwlwifi: Fix and rework Kconfig file

Fixes:
- iwlwifi is an optional driver and should thus not default to 'y'.
- 3945 now depends on IWLCORE.

Rework:
- There is not a case when IWLCORE should not be selected. At the same time
  the driver does not use IWLWIFI or IWLCORE. We can just merge the usage of
  these two. With IWLWIFI being the driver name we proceed to use just it and
  replace instances of IWLCORE with it. The module name does not change
  and is still iwlcore.
- Both IWLAGN and IWL3945 are selecting FW_LOADER, we can thus just move
  this up to one select when IWLWIFI is selected.
- IWL5000 now supports Intel Wireless Wifi 100, 6000, and 6050 series.
- Now that 3945 depends on IWLWIFI we can also indicate its dependency on
  MAC80211_LEDS and LEDS_CLASS at this level.
- IWLAGN_LEDS is not used by driver - remove it.
- IWLAGN_SPECTRUM_MEASUREMENT actually depends on IWLWIFI as it forms part
  of iwlcore module. Move this config up in Kconfig to reflect that and also
  change name to IWLWIFI_SPECTRUM_MEASUREMENT.
- CONFIG_IWLWIFI_RFKILL is used by iwlagn as well as iwl3945, add text to
  description that indicates this.
- CONFIG_IWL3945_RFKILL does not exist - remove usage from driver.
- Add "iwlagn" to end of description of IWLAGN to help people understand
  what iwlagn means in rest of Kconfig text.
- Add "iwl3945" to end of description of IWL3945 to help people understand
  what iwlagn means in rest of Kconfig text.
- Change IWLWIFI_DEBUGFS description to indicate that only iwlagn supports
  it (for now).

This patch splits out the ibss code and data from managed (station) mode.
The reason to do this is to better separate the state machines, and have
the code be contained better so it gets easier to determine what exactly
a given change will affect, that in turn makes it easier to understand.

This is quite some churn, especially because I split sdata->u.sta into
sdata->u.mgd and sdata->u.ibss, but I think it's easier to maintain that
way. I've also shuffled around some code -- null function sending is only
applicable to managed interfaces so put that into that file, some other

Johannes Berg [Wed, 11 Feb 2009 23:51:53 +0000]
mac80211: fix aggregation for hardware with ampdu queues

Hardware with AMPDU queues currently has broken aggregation.

This patch fixes it by making all A-MPDUs go over the regular AC queues,
but keeping track of the hardware queues in mac80211. As a first rough
version, it actually stops the AC queue for extended periods of time,
which can be removed by adding buffering internal to mac80211, but is
currently not a huge problem because people rarely use multiple TIDs
that are in the same AC (and iwlwifi currently doesn't operate as AP).

This is a short-term fix, my current medium-term plan, which I hope to
execute soon as well, but am not sure can finish before .30, looks like
this:
 1) rework the internal queuing layer in mac80211 that we use for
    fragments if the driver stopped queue in the middle of a fragmented
    frame to be able to queue more frames at once (rather than just a
    single frame with its fragments)
 2) instead of stopping the entire AC queue, queue up the frames in a
    per-station/per-TID queue during aggregation session initiation,
    when the session has come up take all those frames and put them
    onto the queue from 1)
 3) push the ampdu queue layer abstraction this patch introduces in
    mac80211 into the driver, and remove the virtual queue stuff from
    mac80211 again

This plan will probably also affect ath9k in that mac80211 queues the
frames instead of passing them down, even when there are no ampdu queues.

mac80211 currently assumes init_net for all interfaces,
so really will not cope well with network namespaces,

To change this, we would have keep track of the netns

11 years agonetlink: change nlmsg_notify() return value logic
Pablo Neira Ayuso [Wed, 25 Feb 2009 07:18:28 +0000]
netlink: change nlmsg_notify() return value logic

This patch changes the return value of nlmsg_notify() as follows:

If NETLINK_BROADCAST_ERROR is set by any of the listeners and
an error in the delivery happened, return the broadcast error;
else if there are no listeners apart from the socket that
requested a change with the echo flag, return the result of the
unicast notification. Thus, with this patch, the unicast
notification is handled in the same way of a broadcast listener
that has set the NETLINK_BROADCAST_ERROR socket flag.

This patch is useful in case that the caller of nlmsg_notify()
wants to know the result of the delivery of a netlink notification
(including the broadcast delivery) and take any action in case
that the delivery failed. For example, ctnetlink can drop packets
if the event delivery failed to provide reliable logging and
state-synchronization at the cost of dropping packets.

This patch also modifies the rtnetlink code to ignore the return
value of rtnl_notify() in all callers. The function rtnl_notify()
(before this patch) returned the error of the unicast notification
which makes rtnl_set_sk_err() reports errors to all listeners. This
is not of any help since the origin of the change (the socket that
requested the echoing) notices the ENOBUFS error if the notification
fails and should resync itself.

11 years agonetfilter: xt_recent: fix proc-file addition/removal of IPv4 addresses
Josef Drexler [Tue, 24 Feb 2009 13:53:12 +0000]
netfilter: xt_recent: fix proc-file addition/removal of IPv4 addresses

Fix regression introduded by commit 079aa88 (netfilter: xt_recent: IPv6 support):

From http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12753:

Problem Description:
An uninitialized buffer causes IPv4 addresses added manually (via the +IP
command to the proc interface) to never match any packets. Similarly, the -IP
command fails to remove IPv4 addresses.

Details:
In the function recent_entry_lookup, the xt_recent module does comparisons of
the entire nf_inet_addr union value, both for IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. For
addresses initialized from actual packets the remaining 12 bytes not occupied
by the IPv4 are zeroed so this works correctly. However when setting the
nf_inet_addr addr variable in the recent_mt_proc_write function, only the IPv4
bytes are initialized and the remaining 12 bytes contain garbage.

Hence addresses added in this way never match any packets, unless these
uninitialized 12 bytes happened to be zero by coincidence. Similarly, addresses
cannot consistently be removed using the proc interface due to mismatch of the
garbage bytes (although it will sometimes work to remove an address that was
added manually).

Reading the /proc/net/xt_recent/ entries hides this problem because this only
uses the first 4 bytes when displaying IPv4 addresses.

Steps to reproduce:
$ iptables -I INPUT -m recent --rcheck -j LOG
$ echo +169.254.156.239 > /proc/net/xt_recent/DEFAULT
$ cat /proc/net/xt_recent/DEFAULT
src=169.254.156.239 ttl: 0 last_seen: 119910 oldest_pkt: 1 119910

[At this point no packets from 169.254.156.239 are being logged.]

$ iptables -I INPUT -s 169.254.156.239 -m recent --set
$ cat /proc/net/xt_recent/DEFAULT
src=169.254.156.239 ttl: 0 last_seen: 119910 oldest_pkt: 1 119910
src=169.254.156.239 ttl: 255 last_seen: 126184 oldest_pkt: 4 125434, 125684, 125934, 126184

[At this point, adding the address via an iptables rule, packets are being
logged correctly.]

$ echo -169.254.156.239 > /proc/net/xt_recent/DEFAULT
$ cat /proc/net/xt_recent/DEFAULT
src=169.254.156.239 ttl: 0 last_seen: 119910 oldest_pkt: 1 119910
src=169.254.156.239 ttl: 255 last_seen: 126992 oldest_pkt: 10 125434, 125684, 125934, 126184, 126434, 126684, 126934, 126991, 126991, 126992
$ echo -169.254.156.239 > /proc/net/xt_recent/DEFAULT
$ cat /proc/net/xt_recent/DEFAULT
src=169.254.156.239 ttl: 0 last_seen: 119910 oldest_pkt: 1 119910

[Removing the address via /proc interface failed evidently.]

Possible solutions:
- initialize the addr variable in recent_mt_proc_write
- compare only 4 bytes for IPv4 addresses in recent_entry_lookup

Dhananjay Phadke [Tue, 24 Feb 2009 11:44:23 +0000]
netxen: handle pci bar 0 mapping failure

PCI bar 0 is used for memory mapped register access.
If ioremap fails (returns NULL), register access results
in crash.

Use pci_ioremap_bar() instead of ioremap(), the latter
fails on on 32 bit powerpc where pci resource address is
> 32 bits.

netxen: fix physical port mapping

The PCI function to physical port mapping is valid only for
old firmware. New firmware (4.0.0+) abstracts this.
So driver should never try to access phy using invalid
mapping. The behavior is unpredictable when PCI functions
4-7 are enabled on the same NIC.

11 years agoproc: proc_get_inode should de_put when inode already initialized
Krzysztof Sachanowicz [Mon, 23 Feb 2009 21:21:55 +0000]
proc: proc_get_inode should de_put when inode already initialized

de_get is called before every proc_get_inode, but corresponding de_put is
called only when dropping last reference to an inode. This might cause
something like
remove_proc_entry: /proc/stats busy, count=14496
to be printed to the syslog.

The fix is to call de_put in case of an already initialized inode in
proc_get_inode.

netns: Remove net_alive

It turns out that net_alive is unnecessary, and the original problem
that led to it being added was simply that the icmp code thought
it was a network device and wound up being unable to handle packets
while there were still packets in the network namespace.

Now that icmp and tcp have been fixed to properly register themselves
this problem is no longer present and we have a stronger guarantee
that packets will not arrive in a network namespace then that provided
by net_alive in netif_receive_skb.  So remove net_alive allowing
packet reception run a little faster.

Additionally document the strong reason why network namespace cleanup
is safe so that if something happens again someone else will have
a chance of figuring it out.

Eric W. Biederman [Sun, 22 Feb 2009 08:09:14 +0000]
netns: Fix icmp shutdown.

Recently I had a kernel panic in icmp_send during a network namespace
cleanup.  There were packets in the arp queue that failed to be sent
and we attempted to generate an ICMP host unreachable message, but
failed because icmp_sk_exit had already been called.

The network devices are removed from a network namespace and their
arp queues are flushed before we do attempt to shutdown subsystems
so this error should have been impossible.

It turns out icmp_init is using register_pernet_device instead
of register_pernet_subsys.  Which resulted in icmp being shut down
while we still had the possibility of packets in flight, making
a nasty NULL pointer deference in interrupt context possible.

Changing this to register_pernet_subsys fixes the problem in
my testing.
