2012-01-05security: remove the security_netlink_recv hook as it is equivalent to capable()Eric Paris1-1/+1
Once upon a time netlink was not sync and we had to get the effective capabilities from the skb that was being received. Today we instead get the capabilities from the current task. This has rendered the entire purpose of the hook moot as it is now functionally equivalent to the capable() call. Signed-off-by: Eric Paris <eparis@redhat.com>

2010-03-30include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking ↵Tejun Heo1-0/+1
implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being included when building most .c files. percpu.h includes slab.h which in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies. percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed. Prepare for this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those headers directly instead of assuming availability. As this conversion needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is used as the basis of conversion. http://userweb.kernel.org/~tj/misc/slabh-sweep.py The script does the followings. * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that only the necessary includes are there. ie. if only gfp is used, gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h. * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms to its surrounding. It's put in the include block which contains core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered - alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there doesn't seem to be any matching order. * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the file. The conversion was done in the following steps. 1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h and ~3000 slab.h inclusions. The script emitted errors for ~400 files. 2. Each error was manually checked. Some didn't need the inclusion, some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or embedding .c file was more appropriate for others. This step added inclusions to around 150 files. 3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits from #2 to make sure no file was left behind. 4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed. e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually. 5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell. Most gfp.h inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros. Each slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as necessary. 6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h. 7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures were fixed. CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq). * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config. * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig * ia64 SMP allmodconfig * s390 SMP allmodconfig * alpha SMP allmodconfig * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig 8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as a separate patch and serve as bisection point. Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step 6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch. If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of the specific arch.

2008-10-03[SCSI] scsi_netlink: Add transport and LLD recieve and event supportJames Smart1-8/+515
This patch adds scsi netlink recieve and event support for transport and scsi LLDD's. It is a reimplementation of the patch posted last week by David Somayajulu. http://marc.info/?l=linux-scsi&m=121745486221819&w=2 There are a few things done differently: - Transport support is included - Event delivery is included - The vendor message is now its own unique message type, considered part of the generic "SCSI Transport". - LLDD entry points are now registered rather than included in the scsi_host_template. Background: When I started to implement the event handler via template, I had to either: muck up scsi_add_host and scsi_remove_host; or have the event handler search all possible shosts. Neither was acceptable. Moving to a registration solves this, and also limits the scope of the changes to something that could be backported to a distro without breaking an already-released-distro kabi. However, I admit it isn't as elegant, as the passing of the LLDD host template in the registration and the complexity around dynamic add/remove shows. - The receive path was augmented to require a unique identifier for the LLDD before the message was allowed to be handed off to the driver. Given how quickly very fatal errors occur if there's msg mismatches (which I saw in testing my own tools :), I believe this to be a very good thing. The id plays off the vendor id scheme already introduced for the vendor unique event messages used by FC. Additionally, the id use as the basis of the registration/deregistration. - Send assist functions, for both the transport and LLDDs are included.

2007-10-10[NET]: make netlink user -> kernel interface synchroniousDenis V. Lunev1-23/+2
This patch make processing netlink user -> kernel messages synchronious. This change was inspired by the talk with Alexey Kuznetsov about current netlink messages processing. He says that he was badly wrong when introduced asynchronious user -> kernel communication. The call netlink_unicast is the only path to send message to the kernel netlink socket. But, unfortunately, it is also used to send data to the user. Before this change the user message has been attached to the socket queue and sk->sk_data_ready was called. The process has been blocked until all pending messages were processed. The bad thing is that this processing may occur in the arbitrary process context. This patch changes nlk->data_ready callback to get 1 skb and force packet processing right in the netlink_unicast. Kernel -> user path in netlink_unicast remains untouched. EINTR processing for in netlink_run_queue was changed. It forces rtnl_lock drop, but the process remains in the cycle until the message will be fully processed. So, there is no need to use this kludges now. Signed-off-by: Denis V. Lunev <den@openvz.org> Acked-by: Alexey Kuznetsov <kuznet@ms2.inr.ac.ru> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2007-10-10[NET]: Support multiple network namespaces with netlinkEric W. Biederman1-1/+1
Each netlink socket will live in exactly one network namespace, this includes the controlling kernel sockets. This patch updates all of the existing netlink protocols to only support the initial network namespace. Request by clients in other namespaces will get -ECONREFUSED. As they would if the kernel did not have the support for that netlink protocol compiled in. As each netlink protocol is updated to be multiple network namespace safe it can register multiple kernel sockets to acquire a presence in the rest of the network namespaces. The implementation in af_netlink is a simple filter implementation at hash table insertion and hash table look up time. Signed-off-by: Eric W.

2006-09-02[SCSI] SCSI and FC Transport: add netlink support for posting of transport ↵James Smart1-0/+199
events This patch formally adds support for the posting of FC events via netlink. It is a followup to the original RFC at: http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-scsi&m=114530667923464&w=2 and the initial posting at: http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-scsi&m=115507374832500&w=2 The patch has been updated to optimize the send path, per the discussions in the initial posting. Per discussions at the Storage Summit and at OLS, we are to use netlink for async events from transports. Also per discussions, to avoid a netlink protocol per transport, I've create a single NETLINK_SCSITRANSPORT protocol, which can then be used by all transports. This patch: - Creates new files scsi_netlink.c and scsi_netlink.h, which contains the single and shared definitions for the SCSI Transport. It is tied into the base SCSI subsystem intialization. Contains a single interface routine, scsi_send_transport_event(), for a transport to send an event (via multicast to a protocol specific group). - Creates a new scsi_netlink_fc.h file, which contains the FC netlink event messages - Adds 3 new routines to the fc transport: fc_get_event_number() - to get a FC event # fc_host_post_event() - to send a simple FC event (32 bits of data) fc_host_post_vendor_event() - to send a Vendor unique event, with arbitrary amounts of data. Note: the separation of event number allows for a LLD to send a standard event, followed by vendor-specific data for the event. Note: This patch assumes 2 prior fc transport patches have been installed: http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-scsi&m=115555807316329&w=2 http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-scsi&m=115581614930261&w=2 Sorry - next time I'll do something like making these individual patches of the same posting when I know they'll be posted closely together.
