Analogous to the previous patch, this adds code to interpret incoming Confirm
feature-negotiation options. Both functions operate on the feature-negotiation
list of either the request_sock (server) or the dccp_sock (client).

Thanks to Wei Yongjun for pointing out that it is overly restrictive to check

dccp: Process incoming Change feature-negotiation options

This adds/replaces code for processing incoming ChangeL/R options.
The main difference is that:
 * mandatory FN options are now interpreted inside the function
  (there are too many individual cases to do this externally);
 * the function returns an appropriate Reset code or 0,

With this patch, TX/RX CCIDs can now be changed on a per-connection basis, which
overrides the defaults set by the global sysctl variables for TX/RX CCIDs.

To make full use of this facility, the remaining patches of this patch set are
needed, which track dependencies and activate negotiated feature values.

Note on the maximum number of CCIDs that can be registered:
-----------------------------------------------------------
The maximum number of CCIDs that can be registered on the socket is constrained
by the space in a Confirm/Change feature negotiation option.

The space in these in turn depends on the size of header options as defined
in RFC 4340, 5.8. Since this is a recurring constant, it has been moved from
ackvec.h into linux/dccp.h, clarifying its purpose.

Relative to this size, the maximum number of CCID identifiers that can be
present in a Confirm option (which always consumes 1 byte more than a Change
option, cf. 6.1) is 2 bytes less than the maximum TLV size: one for the

dccp: Deprecate Ack Ratio sysctl

This patch deprecates the Ack Ratio sysctl, since
 * Ack Ratio is entirely ignored by CCID-3 and CCID-4,
 * Ack Ratio currently doesn't work in CCID-2 (i.e. is always set to 1);
 * even if it would work in CCID-2, there is no point for a user to change it:
   - Ack Ratio is constrained by cwnd (RFC 4341, 6.1.2),
   - if Ack Ratio > cwnd, the system resorts to spurious RTO timeouts
     (since waiting for Acks which will never arrive in this window),
   - cwnd is not a user-configurable value.

The only reasonable place for Ack Ratio is to print it for debugging. It is
planned to do this later on, as part of e.g. dccp_probe.

With this patch Ack Ratio is now under full control of feature negotiation:
 * Ack Ratio is resolved as a dependency of the selected CCID;
 * if the chosen CCID supports it (i.e. CCID == CCID-2), Ack Ratio is set to
   the default of 2, following RFC 4340, 11.3 - "New connections start with Ack
   Ratio 2 for both endpoints";
 * what happens then is part of another patch set, since it concerns the
   dynamic update of Ack Ratio while the connection is in full flight.

12 years agodccp: Resolve dependencies of features on choice of CCID
Gerrit Renker [Thu, 4 Sep 2008 05:30:19 +0000]
dccp: Resolve dependencies of features on choice of CCID

This provides a missing link in the code chain, as several features implicitly
depend and/or rely on the choice of CCID. Most notably, this is the Send Ack Vector
feature, but also Ack Ratio and Send Loss Event Rate (also taken care of).

For Send Ack Vector, the situation is as follows:
 * since CCID2 mandates the use of Ack Vectors, there is no point in allowing
   endpoints which use CCID2 to disable Ack Vector features such a connection;

 * a peer with a TX CCID of CCID2 will always expect Ack Vectors, and a peer
   with a RX CCID of CCID2 must always send Ack Vectors (RFC 4341, sec. 4);

 * for all other CCIDs, the use of (Send) Ack Vector is optional and thus
   negotiable. However, this implies that the code negotiating the use of Ack
   Vectors also supports it (i.e. is able to supply and to either parse or
   ignore received Ack Vectors). Since this is not the case (CCID-3 has no Ack
   Vector support), the use of Ack Vectors is here disabled, with a comment
   in the source code.

An analogous consideration arises for the Send Loss Event Rate feature,
since the CCID-3 implementation does not support the loss interval options
of RFC 4342. To make such use explicit, corresponding feature-negotiation
options are inserted which signal the use of the loss event rate option,
as it is used by the CCID3 code.

Lastly, the values of the Ack Ratio feature are matched to the choice of CCID.

The patch implements this as a function which is called after the user has
made all other registrations for changing default values of features.

The table is variable-length, the reserved (and hence for feature-negotiation
invalid, confirmed by considering section 19.4 of RFC 4340) feature number `0'
is used to mark the end of the table.

 - a copy function so that the list can be used for feature-negotiation;
 - documented getsockopt() support so that the user can query capabilities.

The data structure is a table which is filled in at compile-time with the
list of available CCIDs (which in turn depends on the Kconfig choices).

Using the copy function for cloning the list of supported CCIDs is useful for
feature negotiation, since the negotiation is now with the full list of available
CCIDs (e.g. {2, 3}) instead of the default value {2}. This means negotiation
will not fail if the peer requests to use CCID3 instead of CCID2.

This patch prepares for the new and extended feature-negotiation routines.

* symbolic state names to track feature states,
* an entry struct which holds all current information together,
* elementary functions to fill in and process these structures.

Entry structs are arranged as FIFO for the following reason: RFC 4340 specifies
that if multiple options of the same type are present, they are processed in the
order of their appearance in the packet; which means that this order needs to be
preserved in the local data structure (the later insertion code also respects
this order).

The struct list_head has been chosen for the following reasons: the most
frequent operations are
 * add new entry at tail (when receiving Change or setting socket options);
 * delete entry (when Confirm has been received);
 * deep copy of entire list (cloning from listening socket onto request socket).

12 years agodccp: Empty the write queue when disconnecting
Gerrit Renker [Sat, 23 Aug 2008 11:28:27 +0000]
dccp: Empty the write queue when disconnecting

dccp_disconnect() can be called due to several reasons:

 1. when the connection setup failed (inet_stream_connect());
 2. when shutting down (inet_shutdown(), inet_csk_listen_stop());
 3. when aborting the connection (dccp_close() with 0 linger time).

In case (1) the write queue is empty. This patch empties the write queue,
if in case (2) or (3) it was not yet empty.

This avoids triggering the write-queue BUG_TRAP in sk_stream_kill_queues()
later on.

It also seems natural to do: when breaking an association, to delete all
packets that were originally intended for the soon-disconnected end (compare
with call to tcp_write_queue_purge in tcp_disconnect()).

12 years agodccp: Silently ignore options with nonsensical lengths
Gerrit Renker [Sat, 23 Aug 2008 11:28:27 +0000]
dccp: Silently ignore options with nonsensical lengths

This updates the option-parsing code with regard to RFC 4340, 5.8:
 "[..] options with nonsensical lengths (length byte less than two or more
  than the remaining space in the options portion of the header) MUST be
  ignored, and any option space following an option with nonsensical length
  MUST likewise be ignored."

Hence in the following cases erratic options will be ignored:
 1. The type byte of a multi-byte option is the last byte of the header
    options (i.e. effective option length of 1).
 2. The value of the length byte is less than the minimum 2. This has been
    changed from previously 3: although no multi-byte option with a length
    less than 3 yet exists (cf. table 3 in 5.8), a length of 2 is valid.
    (The switch-statement in dccp_parse has further per-option length checks.)
 3. The option length exceeds the length of the remaining option space.

12 years agodccp: Always generate a Reset in response to option errors
Wei Yongjun [Sat, 23 Aug 2008 11:28:27 +0000]
dccp: Always generate a Reset in response to option errors

RFC4340 states that if a packet is received with an option error (such as a
Mandatory Option as the last byte of the option list), the endpoint should
repond with a Reset.

In the LISTEN and RESPOND states, the endpoint correctly reponds with Reset,
while in the REQUEST/OPEN states, packets with option errors are just ignored.

The packet sequence is as follows:

Case 1:

  Endpoint A                           Endpoint B
  (CLOSED)                             (CLOSED)

               <----------------       REQUEST

  RESPONSE     ----------------->      (*1)
  (with invalid option)
               <----------------       RESET
                                       (with Reset Code 5, "Option Error")

  (*1) currently just ignored, no Reset is sent

Case 2:

  Endpoint A                           Endpoint B
  (OPEN)                               (OPEN)

  DATA-ACK     ----------------->      (*2)
  (with invalid option)
               <----------------       RESET
                                       (with Reset Code 5, "Option Error")

  (*2) currently just ignored, no Reset is sent

This patch fixes the problem, by generating a Reset instead of silently
ignoring option errors.

bnx2x: Accessing un-mapped page

The allocated RX buffer size was 64 bytes bigger than the PCI mapped
size with no good reason. If the packet was actually using the buffer up
to its limit and if the last 64 bytes of the buffer crossed 4KB boundary
then an unmapped PCI page was accessed. The fix is to use only one
parameter for the buffer size - there is no need to differentiate
between the buffer size and the PCI mapping size since the extra 64
bytes can actually be used by the FW to align the Ethernet payload to
64 bytes.

ath9k: Incorrect key used when group and pairwise ciphers are different.

Updating sc_keytype multiple times when groupwise and pairwise
ciphers are different results in incorrect pairwise key type
assumed for TX control and normal ping fails. This works fine

12 years agomac80211: Fix debugfs union misuse and pointer corruption
Jouni Malinen [Thu, 28 Aug 2008 12:12:06 +0000]
mac80211: Fix debugfs union misuse and pointer corruption

debugfs union in struct ieee80211_sub_if_data is misused by including a
common default_key dentry as a union member. This ends occupying the same
memory area with the first dentry in other union members (structures;
usually drop_unencrypted). Consequently, debugfs operations on
default_key symlinks and drop_unencrypted entry are using the same
dentry pointer even though they are supposed to be separate ones. This
can lead to removing entries incorrectly or potentially leaving
something behind since one of the dentry pointers gets lost.

Fix this by moving the default_key dentry to a new struct
(common_debugfs) that contains dentries (more to be added in future)
that are shared by all vif types. The debugfs union must only be used
for vif type-specific entries to avoid this type of pointer corruption.

David Kilroy [Sat, 23 Aug 2008 18:03:34 +0000]
orinoco: Multicast to the specified addresses

When multicasting the driver sets the number of group addresses using
the count from the previous set multicast command. In general this means
you have to set the multicast addresses twice to get the behaviour you
want.

If we were multicasting, and reduce the number of addresses we are
multicasting to, then the driver would write uninitialised data from the
stack into the group addresses to multicast to.

Only write the multicast addresses we have specifically set.

However, the kernel feature flags do not distinguish IPv6 with/without

Therefore, the driver needs to use NETIF_F_IP_CSUM instead of

The hypervisor does checksum offloading only on TCP packets, so ibmveth calls
skb_checksum_help() for any other protocol.  The bug happens because
the packet is being modified after the DMA map, so we would need a memory
barrier before making the hypervisor call.  Reordering the code so that the

http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/7/15/325
http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/8/18/543

Disable TSO by default until we can determine the source of the
problem.
