2011-02-09netfilter: nf_conntrack: set conntrack templates again if we return NF_REPEATPablo Neira Ayuso1-2/+9
The TCP tracking code has a special case that allows to return NF_REPEAT if we receive a new SYN packet while in TIME_WAIT state. In this situation, the TCP tracking code destroys the existing conntrack to start a new clean session. [DESTROY] tcp 6 src= dst= sport=38925 dport=8000 src= dst= sport=8000 dport=38925 [ASSURED] [NEW] tcp 6 120 SYN_SENT src= dst= sport=38925 dport=8000 [UNREPLIED] src= dst= sport=8000 dport=38925 However, this is a problem for the iptables' CT target event filtering which will not work in this case since the conntrack template will not be there for the new session. To fix this, we reassign the conntrack template to the packet if we return NF_REPEAT. Signed-off-by: Pablo Neira Ayuso <pablo@netfilter.org> Signed-off-by: Patrick McHardy <kaber@trash.net>
2011-02-08net: Fix lockdep regression caused by initializing netdev queues too early.David S. Miller1-11/+16
In commit aa9421041128abb4d269ee1dc502ff65fb3b7d69 ("net: init ingress queue") we moved the allocation and lock initialization of the queues into alloc_netdev_mq() since register_netdevice() is way too late. The problem is that dev->type is not setup until the setup() callback is invoked by alloc_netdev_mq(), and the dev->type is what determines the lockdep class to use for the locks in the queues. Fix this by doing the queue allocation after the setup() callback runs. This is safe because the setup() callback is not allowed to make any state changes that need to be undone on error (memory allocations, etc.). It may, however, make state changes that are undone by free_netdev() (such as netif_napi_add(), which is done by the ipoib driver's setup routine). The previous code also leaked a reference to the &init_net namespace object on RX/TX queue allocation failures. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2011-02-08net/caif: Fix dangling list pointer in freed object on error.David S. Miller1-2/+2
rtnl_link_ops->setup(), and the "setup" callback passed to alloc_netdev*(), cannot make state changes which need to be undone on failure. There is no cleanup mechanism available at this point. So we have to add the caif private instance to the global list once we are sure that register_netdev() has succedded in ->newlink(). Otherwise, if register_netdev() fails, the caller will invoke free_netdev() and we will have a reference to freed up memory on the chnl_net_list. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>

2011-02-07x25: possible skb leak on bad facilitiesandrew hendry2-12/+30
Originally x25_parse_facilities returned -1 for an error 0 meaning 0 length facilities >0 the length of the facilities parsed. 5ef41308f94dc ("x25: Prevent crashing when parsing bad X.25 facilities") introduced more error checking in x25_parse_facilities however used 0 to indicate bad parsing a6331d6f9a429 ("memory corruption in X.25 facilities parsing") followed this further for DTE facilities, again using 0 for bad parsing. The meaning of 0 got confused in the callers. If the facilities are messed up we can't determine where the data starts. So patch makes all parsing errors return -1 and ensures callers close and don't use the skb further.

Using skb_header_cloned to check if it's safe to write to the skb is not enough - mac80211 also touches the tailroom of the skb. Initially this check was only used to increase a counter, however this commit changed the code to also skip skb data reallocation if no extra head/tailroom was needed: commit 4cd06a344db752f513437138953af191cbe9a691 mac80211: skip unnecessary pskb_expand_head calls It added a regression at least with iwl3945, which is fixed by this patch.

2011-02-02mac80211: fix TX status cookie in HW offload caseJohannes Berg3-2/+9
When the off-channel TX is done with remain-on-channel offloaded to hardware, the reported cookie is wrong as in that case we shouldn't use the SKB as the cookie but need to instead use the corresponding r-o-c cookie (XOR'ed with 2 to prevent API mismatches). Fix this by keeping track of the hw_roc_skb pointer just for the status processing and use the correct cookie to report in this case. We can't use the hw_roc_skb pointer itself because it is NULL'ed when the frame is transmitted to prevent it being used twice. This fixes a bug where the P2P state machine in the supplicant gets stuck because it never gets a correct result for its transmitted frame.

2011-02-01netfilter: ecache: always set events bits, filter them laterPablo Neira Ayuso1-0/+3
For the following rule: iptables -I PREROUTING -t raw -j CT --ctevents assured The event delivered looks like the following: [UPDATE] tcp 6 src= dst= sport=37041 dport=80 src= dst= sport=80 dport=37041 [ASSURED] Note that the TCP protocol state is not included. For that reason the CT event filtering is not very useful for conntrackd. To resolve this issue, instead of conditionally setting the CT events bits based on the ctmask, we always set them and perform the filtering in the late stage, just before the delivery. Thus, the event delivered looks like the following: [UPDATE] tcp 6 432000 ESTABLISHED src= dst= sport=37041 dport=80 src= dst= sport=80 dport=37041 [ASSURED] Signed-off-by: Pablo Neira Ayuso <pablo@netfilter.org> Signed-off-by: Patrick McHardy <kaber@trash.net>

2011-01-31net: Fix ipv6 neighbour unregister_sysctl_table warningEric W. Biederman1-1/+8
In my testing of 2.6.37 I was occassionally getting a warning about sysctl table entries being unregistered in the wrong order. Digging in it turns out this dates back to the last great sysctl reorg done where Al Viro introduced the requirement that sysctl directories needed to be created before and destroyed after the files in them. It turns out that in that great reorg /proc/sys/net/ipv6/neigh was overlooked. So this patch fixes that oversight and makes an annoying warning message go away. >------------[ cut here ]------------ >WARNING: at kernel/sysctl.c:1992 unregister_sysctl_table+0x134/0x164() >Pid: 23951, comm: kworker/u:3 Not tainted 2.6.37-350888.2010AroraKernelBeta.fc14.x86_64 #1 >Call Trace: > [<ffffffff8103e034>] warn_slowpath_common+0x80/0x98 > [<ffffffff8103e061>] warn_slowpath_null+0x15/0x17 > [<ffffffff810452f8>] unregister_sysctl_table+0x134/0x164 > [<ffffffff810e7834>] ? kfree+0xc4/0xd1 > [<ffffffff813439b2>] neigh_sysctl_unregister+0x22/0x3a > [<ffffffffa02cd14e>] addrconf_ifdown+0x33f/0x37b [ipv6] > [<ffffffff81331ec2>] ? skb_dequeue+0x5f/0x6b > [<ffffffffa02ce4a5>] addrconf_notify+0x69b/0x75c [ipv6] > [<ffffffffa02eb953>] ? ip6mr_device_event+0x98/0xa9 [ipv6] > [<ffffffff813d2413>] notifier_call_chain+0x32/0x5e > [<ffffffff8105bdea>] raw_notifier_call_chain+0xf/0x11 > [<ffffffff8133cdac>] call_netdevice_notifiers+0x45/0x4a > [<ffffffff8133d2b0>] rollback_registered_many+0x118/0x201 > [<ffffffff8133d3af>] unregister_netdevice_many+0x16/0x6d > [<ffffffff8133d571>] default_device_exit_batch+0xa4/0xb8 > [<ffffffff81337c42>] ? cleanup_net+0x0/0x194 > [<ffffffff81337a2a>] ops_exit_list+0x4e/0x56 > [<ffffffff81337d36>] cleanup_net+0xf4/0x194 > [<ffffffff81053318>] process_one_work+0x187/0x280 > [<ffffffff8105441b>] worker_thread+0xff/0x19f > [<ffffffff8105431c>] ? worker_thread+0x0/0x19f > [<ffffffff8105776d>] kthread+0x7d/0x85 > [<ffffffff81003824>] kernel_thread_helper+0x4/0x10 > [<ffffffff810576f0>] ? kthread+0x0/0x85 > [<ffffffff81003820>] ? kernel_thread_helper+0x0/0x10 >---[ end trace 8a7e9310b35e9486 ]--- Signed-off-by: Eric W.

2011-01-31net: Add default_mtu() methods to blackhole dst_opsRoland Dreier2-0/+12
When an IPSEC SA is still being set up, __xfrm_lookup() will return -EREMOTE and so ip_route_output_flow() will return a blackhole route. This can happen in a sndmsg call, and after d33e455337ea ("net: Abstract default MTU metric calculation behind an accessor.") this leads to a crash in ip_append_data() because the blackhole dst_ops have no default_mtu() method and so dst_mtu() calls a NULL pointer. Fix this by adding default_mtu() methods (that simply return 0, matching the old behavior) to the blackhole dst_ops. The IPv4 part of this patch fixes a crash that I saw when using an IPSEC VPN; the IPv6 part is untested because I don't have an IPv6 VPN, but it looks to be needed as well.

2011-01-30batman-adv: Make vis info stack traversal threadsafeSven Eckelmann1-3/+4
The batman-adv vis server has to a stack which stores all information about packets which should be send later. This stack is protected with a spinlock that is used to prevent concurrent write access to it. The send_vis_packets function has to take all elements from the stack and send them to other hosts over the primary interface. The send will be initiated without the lock which protects the stack. The implementation using list_for_each_entry_safe has the problem that it stores the next element as "safe ptr" to allow the deletion of the current element in the list. The list may be modified during the unlock/lock pair in the loop body which may make the safe pointer not pointing to correct next element. It is safer to remove and use the first element from the stack until no elements are available. This does not need reduntant information which would have to be validated each time the lock was removed.

2011-01-30net: Add compat ioctl support for the ipv4 multicast ioctl SIOCGETSGCNTEric W. Biederman3-0/+81
SIOCGETSGCNT is not a unique ioctl value as it it maps tio SIOCPROTOPRIVATE +1, which unfortunately means the existing infrastructure for compat networking ioctls is insufficient. A trivial compact ioctl implementation would conflict with: SIOCAX25ADDUID SIOCAIPXPRISLT SIOCGETSGCNT_IN6 SIOCGETSGCNT SIOCRSSCAUSE SIOCX25SSUBSCRIP SIOCX25SDTEFACILITIES To make this work I have updated the compat_ioctl decode path to mirror the the normal ioctl decode path. I have added an ipv4 inet_compat_ioctl function so that I can have ipv4 specific compat ioctls. I have added a compat_ioctl function into struct proto so I can break out ioctls by which kind of ip socket I am using. I have added a compat_raw_ioctl function because SIOCGETSGCNT only works on raw sockets. I have added a ipmr_compat_ioctl that mirrors the normal ipmr_ioctl. This was necessary because unfortunately the struct layout for the SIOCGETSGCNT has unsigned longs in it so changes between 32bit and 64bit kernels. This change was sufficient to run a 32bit ip multicast routing daemon on a 64bit kernel. Reported-by: Bill Fenner <fenner@aristanetworks.com> Signed-off-by: Eric W.

Biederman <ebiederm@aristanetworks.com> Date: Sun Nov 8 00:53:51 2009 -0800 net: Support specifying the network namespace upon device creation. There is no good reason to not support userspace specifying the network namespace during device creation, and it makes it easier to create a network device and pass it to a child network namespace with a well known name. We have to be careful to ensure that the target network namespace for the new device exists through the life of the call. To keep that logic clear I have factored out the network namespace grabbing logic into rtnl_link_get_net. In addtion we need to continue to pass the source network namespace to the rtnl_link_ops.newlink method so that we can find the base device source network namespace. Signed-off-by: Eric W.

2011-01-29gro: Reset dev pointer on reuseHerbert Xu1-0/+1
On older kernels the VLAN code may zero skb->dev before dropping it and causing it to be reused by GRO. Unfortunately we didn't reset skb->dev in that case which causes the next GRO user to get a bogus skb->dev pointer. This particular problem no longer happens with the current upstream kernel due to changes in VLAN processing. However, for correctness we should still reset the skb->dev pointer in the GRO reuse function in case a future user does the same thing.

2011-01-27ipv6: Remove route peer binding assertions.David S. Miller1-4/+0
They are bogus. The basic idea is that I wanted to make sure that prefixed routes never bind to peers. The test I used was whether RTF_CACHE was set. But first of all, the RTF_CACHE flag is set at different spots depending upon which ip6_rt_copy() caller you're talking about. I've validated all of the code paths, and even in the future where we bind peers more aggressively (for route metric COW'ing) we never bind to prefix'd routes, only fully specified ones. This even applies when addrconf or icmp6 routes are allocated. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>

2011-01-25TCP: fix a bug that triggers large number of TCP RST by mistakeJerry Chu1-1/+1
This patch fixes a bug that causes TCP RST packets to be generated on otherwise correctly behaved applications, e.g., no unread data on close,..., etc. To trigger the bug, at least two conditions must be met: 1. The FIN flag is set on the last data packet, i.e., it's not on a separate, FIN only packet. 2. The size of the last data chunk on the receive side matches exactly with the size of buffer posted by the receiver, and the receiver closes the socket without any further read attempt. This bug was first noticed on our netperf based testbed for our IW10 proposal to IETF where a large number of RST packets were observed. netperf's read side code meets the condition 2 above 100%. Before the fix, tcp_data_queue() will queue the last skb that meets condition 1 to sk_receive_queue even though it has fully copied out (skb_copy_datagram_iovec()) the data. Then if condition 2 is also met, tcp_recvmsg() often returns all the copied out data successfully without actually consuming the skb, due to a check "if ((chunk = len - tp->ucopy.len) != 0) {" and "len -= chunk;" after tcp_prequeue_process() that causes "len" to become 0 and an early exit from the big while loop. I don't see any reason not to free the skb whose data have been fully consumed in tcp_data_queue(), regardless of the FIN flag. We won't get there if MSG_PEEK is on. Am I missing some arcane cases related to urgent data? Signed-off-by: H.K. Jerry Chu <hkchu@google.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>

Some drivers (e.g. ath9k) do not always disable beacons when they're supposed to. When an interface is changed using the change_interface op, the mode specific sdata part is in an undefined state and trying to get a beacon at this point can produce weird crashes.
