The breakage is caused by the change to use the CB area for flagging
whether a packet has been queued due to proxy_delay.  This area gets
cleared every time arp_rcv gets called.  Unfortunately packets delayed
due to proxy_delay also go through arp_rcv when they are reprocessed.

In fact, I can't think of a reason why delayed proxy packets should go
through netfilter again at all.  So the easiest solution is to bypass
that and go straight to arp_process.

This is essentially what would've happened before netfilter support
was added to ARP.

14 years ago[INET]: speedup inet (tcp/dccp) lookups
Eric Dumazet [Mon, 3 Oct 2005 21:13:38 +0000]
[INET]: speedup inet (tcp/dccp) lookups

Arnaldo and I agreed it could be applied now, because I have other
pending patches depending on this one (Thank you Arnaldo)

(The other important patch moves skc_refcnt in a separate cache line,
so that the SMP/NUMA performance doesnt suffer from cache line ping pongs)

1) First some performance data :
--------------------------------

tcp_v4_rcv() wastes a *lot* of time in __inet_lookup_established()

The most time critical code is :

sk_for_each(sk, node, &head->chain) {
     if (INET_MATCH(sk, acookie, saddr, daddr, ports, dif))
         goto hit; /* You sunk my battleship! */
}

The sk_for_each() does use prefetch() hints but only the begining of
"struct sock" is prefetched.

As INET_MATCH first comparison uses inet_sk(__sk)->daddr, wich is far
away from the begining of "struct sock", it has to bring into CPU
cache cold cache line. Each iteration has to use at least 2 cache
lines.

This can be problematic if some chains are very long.

2) The goal
-----------

The idea I had is to change things so that INET_MATCH() may return
FALSE in 99% of cases only using the data already in the CPU cache,
using one cache line per iteration.

3) Description of the patch
---------------------------

Adds a new 'unsigned int skc_hash' field in 'struct sock_common',
filling a 32 bits hole on 64 bits platform.

struct sock_common {
unsigned short skc_family;
volatile unsigned char skc_state;
unsigned char skc_reuse;
int skc_bound_dev_if;
struct hlist_node skc_node;
struct hlist_node skc_bind_node;
atomic_t skc_refcnt;
+ unsigned int skc_hash;
struct proto *skc_prot;
};

Store in this 32 bits field the full hash, not masked by (ehash_size -
1) Using this full hash as the first comparison done in INET_MATCH
permits us immediatly skip the element without touching a second cache
line in case of a miss.

Suppress the sk_hashent/tw_hashent fields since skc_hash (aliased to
sk_hash and tw_hash) already contains the slot number if we mask with
(ehash_size - 1)

File include/net/inet_hashtables.h

64 bits platforms :
#define INET_MATCH(__sk, __hash, __cookie, __saddr, __daddr, __ports, __dif)\
     (((__sk)->sk_hash == (__hash))
     ((*((__u64 *)&(inet_sk(__sk)->daddr)))== (__cookie))   &&  \
     ((*((__u32 *)&(inet_sk(__sk)->dport))) == (__ports))   &&  \
     (!((__sk)->sk_bound_dev_if) || ((__sk)->sk_bound_dev_if == (__dif))))

32bits platforms:
#define TCP_IPV4_MATCH(__sk, __hash, __cookie, __saddr, __daddr, __ports, __dif)\
     (((__sk)->sk_hash == (__hash))                 &&  \
     (inet_sk(__sk)->daddr          == (__saddr))   &&  \
     (inet_sk(__sk)->rcv_saddr      == (__daddr))   &&  \
     (!((__sk)->sk_bound_dev_if) || ((__sk)->sk_bound_dev_if == (__dif))))

- Adds a prefetch(head->chain.first) in
__inet_lookup_established()/__tcp_v4_check_established() and
__inet6_lookup_established()/__tcp_v6_check_established() and
__dccp_v4_check_established() to bring into cache the first element of the
list, before the {read|write}_lock(&head->lock);

Herbert Xu [Mon, 3 Oct 2005 20:57:23 +0000]
[NET]: Fix packet timestamping.

I've found the problem in general.  It affects any 64-bit
architecture.  The problem occurs when you change the system time.

Suppose that when you boot your system clock is forward by a day.
This gets recorded down in skb_tv_base.  You then wind the clock back
by a day.  From that point onwards the offset will be negative which
essentially overflows the 32-bit variables they're stored in.

In fact, why don't we just store the real time stamp in those 32-bit
variables? After all, we're not going to overflow for quite a while
yet.

When we do overflow, we'll need a better solution of course.

Ravikiran G Thirumalai [Fri, 30 Sep 2005 18:59:22 +0000]
[PATCH] x86_64 early numa init fix

The tests Alok carried out on Petr's box confirmed that cpu_to_node[BP] is
not setup early enough by numa_init_array due to the x86_64 changes in
2.6.14-rc*, and unfortunately set wrongly by the work around code in
numa_init_array().  cpu_to_node[0] gets set with 1 early and later gets set
properly to 0 during identify_cpu() when all cpus are brought up, but
confusing the numa slab in the process.

Here is a quick fix for this.  The right fix obviously is to have
cpu_to_node[bsp] setup early for numa_init_array().  The following patch
will fix the problem now, and the code can stay on even when
cpu_to_node{BP] gets fixed early correctly.

Thanks to Petr for access to his box.

futile error recovery attempts when SBP-2 devices are removed or drivers are
unloaded.

 - Complete commands quickly with DID_NO_CONNECT if the 1394 node is gone or if
   the 1394 low-level driver was unloaded.
 - Skip unnecessary work in the eh_abort_handler and eh_device_reset_handler if
   the node or 1394 low-level driver is gone.
 - Let scsi's high-level shut down gracefully when sbp2 is being unloaded or
   detached from the 1394 unit. A call to scsi_remove_device is added for this
   purpose, which requires us to store a scsi_device pointer.
 - scsi_device pointer is obtained from slave_alloc hook and cleared by
   slave_destroy. This avoids usage of the pointer after the scsi device was
   deleted e.g. by the user via scsi_mod's sysfs interface.

[PATCH] ioc4_serial: Remove bogus error message

This change removes a bogus error message from the IOC4 serial driver
interrupt handler.

This error message is bogus for two reasons.  First, it can never occur
given that current code takes care to initialize IOC4 in such a way that
these "unknown" interrupts could never occur.  Second, this code fails to
take into account that other drivers can share the IOC4 interrupt mechanism
through SA_SHIRQ, and thus this driver is not in-fact "all-knowing".

Finally, this error message triggers every time some "unknown" interrupt
occurs -- it's not rate limited or repetition limited in any way, thereby
effectively denying use of the console device.  Given its bogosity in the
first place, it's best to just get rid of it entirely.

Paolo 'Blaisorblade' Giarrusso [Fri, 30 Sep 2005 18:59:01 +0000]
[PATCH] uml: remove empty hostfs_truncate method

Calling truncate() on hostfs spits a kernel warning "Something isn't
implemented here", but it still works fine.

Indeed, hostfs i_op->truncate doesn't do anything.  But hostfs_setattr() ->
set_attr() correctly detects ATTR_SIZE and calls truncate() on the host.  So
we should be safe (using ftruncate() may be better, in case the file is
unlinked on the host, but we aren't sure to have the file open for writing,
and reopening it would cause the same races; plus nobody should expect UML to
be so careful).

So, the warning is wrong, because the current implementation is working.  Al,
am I correct, and can the warning be therefore dropped?

Recently aio_p{read,write} changed to perform retries internally rather
than returning -EIOCBRETRY.  This inadvertantly resulted in always calling
aio_{read,write} with ki_left at 0 which would in turn immediately return
0.  Harmless, but we can avoid this call by checking in the caller.

[PATCH] aio: remove unlocked task_list test and resulting race

Only one of the run or kick path is supposed to put an iocb on the run
list.  If both of them do it than one of them can end up referencing a
freed iocb.  The kick path could delete the task_list item from the wait
queue before getting the ctx_lock and putting the iocb on the run list.
The run path was testing the task_list item outside the lock so that it
could catch ki_retry methods that return -EIOCBRETRY *without* putting the
iocb on a wait queue and promising to call kick_iocb.  This unlocked check
could then race with the kick path to cause both to try and put the iocb on
the run list.

The patch stops the run path from testing task_list by requring that any
ki_retry that returns -EIOCBRETRY *must* guarantee that kick_iocb() will be
called in the future.  aio_p{read,write}, the only in-tree -EIOCBRETRY
users, are updated.

ctx_lock and putting the iocb on the run list.  The run path, while holding

14 years ago[PATCH] SELinux - fix SCTP socket bug and general IP protocol handling
James Morris [Fri, 30 Sep 2005 18:24:34 +0000]
[PATCH] SELinux - fix SCTP socket bug and general IP protocol handling

The following patch updates the way SELinux classifies and handles IP
based protocols.

Currently, IP sockets are classified by SELinux as being either TCP, UDP
or 'Raw', the latter being a default for IP socket that is not TCP or UDP.

The classification code is out of date and uses only the socket type
parameter to socket(2) to determine the class of IP socket.  So, any
socket created with SOCK_STREAM will be classified by SELinux as TCP, and
SOCK_DGRAM as UDP.  Also, other socket types such as SOCK_SEQPACKET and
SOCK_DCCP are currently ignored by SELinux, which classifies them as
generic sockets, which means they don't even get basic IP level checking.

This patch changes the SELinux IP socket classification logic, so that
only an IPPROTO_IP protocol value passed to socket(2) classify the socket
as TCP or UDP.  The patch also drops the check for SOCK_RAW and converts
it into a default, so that socket types like SOCK_DCCP and SOCK_SEQPACKET
are classified as SECCLASS_RAWIP_SOCKET (instead of generic sockets).

Note that protocol-specific support for SCTP, DCCP etc. is not addressed
here, we're just getting these protocols checked at the IP layer.

This fixes a reported problem where SCTP sockets were being recognized as
generic SELinux sockets yet still being passed in one case to an IP level
check, which then fails for generic sockets.

It will also fix bugs where any SOCK_STREAM socket is classified as TCP or
any SOCK_DGRAM socket is classified as UDP.

This patch also unifies the way IP sockets classes are determined in
selinux_socket_bind(), so we use the already calculated value instead of
trying to recalculate it.

Alexey Kuznetsov [Fri, 30 Sep 2005 00:17:15 +0000]
[TCP]: Don't over-clamp window in tcp_clamp_window()

From: Alexey Kuznetsov <kuznet@ms2.inr.ac.ru>

Handle better the case where the sender sends full sized
frames initially, then moves to a mode where it trickles
out small amounts of data at a time.

This known problem is even mentioned in the comments
above tcp_grow_window() in tcp_input.c, specifically:

...
 * The scheme does not work when sender sends good segments opening
 * window and then starts to feed us spagetti. But it should work
 * in common situations. Otherwise, we have to rely on queue collapsing.
...

When the sender gives full sized frames, the "struct sk_buff" overhead
from each packet is small.  So we'll advertize a larger window.
If the sender moves to a mode where small segments are sent, this
ratio becomes tilted to the other extreme and we start overrunning
the socket buffer space.

tcp_clamp_window() tries to address this, but it's clamping of
tp->window_clamp is a wee bit too aggressive for this particular case.

Fix confirmed by Ion Badulescu.

[TCP]: Revert 6b251858d377196b8cea20e65cae60f584a42735

But retain the comment fix.

Alexey Kuznetsov has explained the situation as follows:

--------------------

I think the fix is incorrect. Look, the RFC function init_cwnd(mss) is
not continuous: f.e. for mss=1095 it needs initial window 1095*4, but
for mss=1096 it is 1096*3. We do not know exactly what mss sender used
for calculations. If we advertised 1096 (and calculate initial window
3*1096), the sender could limit it to some value < 1096 and then it
will need window his_mss*4 > 3*1096 to send initial burst.

See?

So, the honest function for inital rcv_wnd derived from
tcp_init_cwnd() is:

init_rcv_wnd(mss)=
  min { init_cwnd(mss1)*mss1 for mss1 <= mss }

It is something sort of:

if (mss < 1096)
return mss*4;
if (mss < 1096*2)
return 1096*4;
return mss*2;

(I just scrablled a graph of piece of paper, it is difficult to see or
to explain without this)

I selected it differently giving more window than it is strictly
required.  Initial receive window must be large enough to allow sender
following to the rfc (or just setting initial cwnd to 2) to send
initial burst.  But besides that it is arbitrary, so I decided to give
slack space of one segment.

Actually, the logic was:

If mss is low/normal (<=ethernet), set window to receive more than
initial burst allowed by rfc under the worst conditions
i.e. mss*4. This gives slack space of 1 segment for ethernet frames.

For msses slighlty more than ethernet frame, take 3. Try to give slack
space of 1 frame again.

If mss is huge, force 2*mss. No slack space.

Value 1460*3 is really confusing. Minimal one is 1096*2, but besides
that it is an arbitrary value. It was meant to be ~4096. 1460*3 is
just the magic number from RFC, 1460*3 = 1095*4 is the magic :-), so
that I guess hands typed this themselves.

[ARM] 2941/1: Fix running legacy binaries from a soft-float root filesystem with CONFIG_IWMMXT.

Patch from Daniel Jacobowitz

Thread flags are inherited on fork().  In order for a binary which has
the iWMMXt coprocessor enabled to run a binary which needs the FPA
emulation, we need to explicitly clear TIF_USING_IWMMXT if we are not
going to set it.

14 years ago[PATCH] Fix ppc64 smu driver locking

[PATCH] Fix ppc64 smu driver locking

The SMU driver has a small mistake in the locking of the interrupt code,
if polled access and interrupt access race, interrupt may take a lock
and return without releasing it. This fixes it. With that patch, the
driver is rock solid with my experimental thermal control (which bangs
it pretty hard) racing with real time clock and cpufreq handling.

14 years ago[PATCH] readv/writev syscalls are not checked by lsm
Kostik Belousov [Wed, 28 Sep 2005 15:21:28 +0000]
[PATCH] readv/writev syscalls are not checked by lsm

it seems that readv(2)/writev(2) syscalls do not call
file_permission callback. Looks like this is overlook.

I have filled the issue into redhat bugzilla as
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=169433
and got the recommendation to post this on lsm mailing list.

The following trivial patch solves the problem.
