2012-05-21Merge tag 'isci-for-3.5' into miscJames Bottomley
isci update for 3.5 1/ Rework remote-node-context (RNC) handling for proper management of the silicon state machine in error handling and hot-plug conditions. Further details below, suffice to say if the RNC is mismanaged the silicon state machines may lock up. 2/ Refactor the initialization code to be reused for suspend/resume support 3/ Miscellaneous bug fixes to address discovery issues and hardware compatibility. RNC rework details from Jeff Skirvin: In the controller, devices as they appear on a SAS domain (or direct-attached SATA devices) are represented by memory structures known as "Remote Node Contexts" (RNCs). These structures are transferred from main memory to the controller using a set of register commands; these commands include setting up the context ("posting"), removing the context ("invalidating"), and commands to control the scheduling of commands and connections to that remote device ("suspensions" and "resumptions"). There is a similar path to control RNC scheduling from the protocol engine, which interprets the results of command and data transmission and reception. In general, the controller chooses among non-suspended RNCs to find one that has work requiring scheduling the transmission of command and data frames to a target. Likewise, when a target tries to return data back to the initiator, the state of the RNC is used by the controller to determine how to treat the incoming request. As an example, if the RNC is in the state "TX/RX Suspended", incoming SSP connection requests from the target will be rejected by the controller hardware. When an RNC is "TX Suspended", it will not be selected by the controller hardware to start outgoing command or data operations (with certain priority-based exceptions). As mentioned above, there are two sources for management of the RNC states: commands from driver software, and the result of transmission and reception conditions of commands and data signaled by the controller hardware. As an example of the latter, if an outgoing SSP command ends with a OPEN_REJECT(BAD_DESTINATION) status, the RNC state will transition to the "TX Suspended" state, and this is signaled by the controller hardware in the status to the completion of the pending command as well as signaled in a controller hardware event. Examples of the former are included in the patch changelogs. Driver software is required to suspend the RNC in a "TX/RX Suspended" condition before any outstanding commands can be terminated. Failure to guarantee this can lead to a complete hardware hang condition. Earlier versions of the driver software did not guarantee that an RNC was correctly managed before I/O termination, and so operated in an unsafe way. Further, the driver performed unnecessary contortions to preserve the remote device command state and so was more complicated than it needed to be. A simplifying driver assumption is that once an I/O has entered the error handler path without having completed in the target, the requirement on the driver is that all use of the sas_task must end. Beyond that, recovery of operation is dependent on libsas and other components to reset, rediscover and reconfigure the device before normal operation can restart. In the driver, this simplifying assumption meant that the RNC management could be reduced to entry into the suspended state, terminating the targeted I/O request, and resuming the RNC as needed for device-specific management such as an SSP Abort Task or LUN Reset Management request.

2012-05-14Smack: allow for significantly longer Smack labels v4Casey Schaufler
V4 updated to current linux-security#next Targeted for git://gitorious.org/smack-next/kernel.git Modern application runtime environments like to use naming schemes that are structured and generated without human intervention. Even though the Smack limit of 23 characters for a label name is perfectly rational for human use there have been complaints that the limit is a problem in environments where names are composed from a set or sources, including vendor, author, distribution channel and application name. Names like softwarehouse-pgwodehouse-coolappstore-mellowmuskrats are becoming harder to avoid. This patch introduces long label support in Smack. Labels are now limited to 255 characters instead of the old 23. The primary reason for limiting the labels to 23 characters was so they could be directly contained in CIPSO category sets. This is still done were possible, but for labels that are too large a mapping is required. This is perfectly safe for communication that stays "on the box" and doesn't require much coordination between boxes beyond what would have been required to keep label names consistent. The bulk of this patch is in smackfs, adding and updating administrative interfaces. Because existing APIs can't be changed new ones that do much the same things as old ones have been introduced. The Smack specific CIPSO data representation has been removed and replaced with the data format used by netlabel. The CIPSO header is now computed when a label is imported rather than on use. This results in improved IP performance. The smack label is now allocated separately from the containing structure, allowing for larger strings. Four new /smack interfaces have been introduced as four of the old interfaces strictly required labels be specified in fixed length arrays. The access interface is supplemented with the check interface: access "Subject Object rwxat" access2 "Subject Object rwaxt" The load interface is supplemented with the rules interface: load "Subject Object rwxat" load2 "Subject Object rwaxt" The load-self interface is supplemented with the self-rules interface: load-self "Subject Object rwxat" load-self2 "Subject Object rwaxt" The cipso interface is supplemented with the wire interface: cipso "Subject lvl cnt c1 c2 ..." cipso2 "Subject lvl cnt c1 c2 ..." The old interfaces are maintained for compatibility. Signed-off-by: Casey Schaufler <casey@schaufler-ca.com>

It can happens quite often that not only one feature is currently in development or waiting on the mailinglist. This creates merge conflicts when applying a patchset. The date itself doesn't provide any additional information when this file is only available in a release tarball or as part of a SCM repository.

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/paulmck/linux-rcu into core/rcu Pull the v3.5 RCU tree from Paul E. McKenney: 1) A set of improvements and fixes to the RCU_FAST_NO_HZ feature (with more on the way for 3.6). Posted to LKML: https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/4/23/324 (commits 1-3 and 5), https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/4/16/611 (commit 4), https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/4/30/390 (commit 6), and https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/5/4/410 (commit 7, combined with the other commits for the convenience of the tester). 2) Changes to make rcu_barrier() avoid disrupting execution of CPUs that have no RCU callbacks. Posted to LKML: https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/4/23/322. 3) A couple of commits that improve the efficiency of the interaction between preemptible RCU and the scheduler, these two being all that survived an abortive attempt to allow preemptible RCU's __rcu_read_lock() to be inlined. The full set was posted to LKML at https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/4/14/143, and the first and third patches of that set remain. 4) Lai Jiangshan's algorithmic implementation of SRCU, which includes call_srcu() and srcu_barrier(). A major feature of this new implementation is that synchronize_srcu() no longer disturbs the execution of other CPUs. This work is based on earlier implementations by Peter Zijlstra and Paul E. McKenney. Posted to LKML: https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/2/22/82. 5) A number of miscellaneous bug fixes and improvements which were posted to LKML at: https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/4/23/353 with subsequent updates posted to LKML.

2012-05-11KEYS: Add invalidation supportDavid Howells
Add support for invalidating a key - which renders it immediately invisible to further searches and causes the garbage collector to immediately wake up, remove it from keyrings and then destroy it when it's no longer referenced. It's better not to do this with keyctl_revoke() as that marks the key to start returning -EKEYREVOKED to searches when what is actually desired is to have the key refetched. To invalidate a key the caller must be granted SEARCH permission by the key. This may be too strict. It may be better to also permit invalidation if the caller has any of READ, WRITE or SETATTR permission. The primary use for this is to evict keys that are cached in special keyrings, such as the DNS resolver or an ID mapper. Signed-off-by: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com>

This patch removes ip_queue support which was marked as obsolete years ago. The nfnetlink_queue modules provides more advanced user-space packet queueing mechanism. This patch also removes capability code included in SELinux that refers to ip_queue. Otherwise, we break compilation.

2012-05-08netfilter: bridge: optionally set indev to vlanPablo Neira Ayuso
if net.bridge.bridge-nf-filter-vlan-tagged sysctl is enabled, bridge netfilter removes the vlan header temporarily and then feeds the packet to ip(6)tables. When the new "bridge-nf-pass-vlan-input-device" sysctl is on (default off), then bridge netfilter will also set the in-interface to the vlan interface; if such an interface exists. This is needed to make iptables REDIRECT target work with "vlan-on-top-of-bridge" setups and to allow use of "iptables -i" to match the vlan device name. Also update Documentation with current brnf default settings.

2012-05-07netdev/of/phy: Add MDIO bus multiplexer support.David Daney
This patch adds a somewhat generic framework for MDIO bus multiplexers. It is modeled on the I2C multiplexer. The multiplexer is needed if there are multiple PHYs with the same address connected to the same MDIO bus adepter, or if there is insufficient electrical drive capability for all the connected PHY devices. Conceptually it could look something like this: ------------------ | Control Signal | --------+--------- | --------------- --------+------ | MDIO MASTER |---| Multiplexer | --------------- --+-------+---- | | C C h h i i l l d d | | --------- A B --------- | | | | | | | PHY@1 +-------+ +---+ PHY@1 | | | | | | | --------- | | --------- --------- | | --------- | | | | | | | PHY@2 +-------+ +---+ PHY@2 | | | | | --------- --------- This framework configures the bus topology from device tree data. The mechanics of switching the multiplexer is left to device specific drivers. The follow-on patch contains a multiplexer driven by GPIO lines.

2012-05-02tcp: change tcp_adv_win_scale and tcp_rmem[2]Eric Dumazet
tcp_adv_win_scale default value is 2, meaning we expect a good citizen skb to have skb->len / skb->truesize ratio of 75% (3/4) In 2.6 kernels we (mis)accounted for typical MSS=1460 frame : 1536 + 64 + 256 = 1856 'estimated truesize', and 1856 * 3/4 = 1392. So these skbs were considered as not bloated. With recent truesize fixes, a typical MSS=1460 frame truesize is now the more precise : 2048 + 256 = 2304. But 2304 * 3/4 = 1728. So these skb are not good citizen anymore, because 1460 < 1728 (GRO can escape this problem because it build skbs with a too low truesize.) This also means tcp advertises a too optimistic window for a given allocated rcvspace : When receiving frames, sk_rmem_alloc can hit sk_rcvbuf limit and we call tcp_prune_queue()/tcp_collapse() too often, especially when application is slow to drain its receive queue or in case of losses (netperf is fast, scp is slow). This is a major latency source. We should adjust the len/truesize ratio to 50% instead of 75% This patch : 1) changes tcp_adv_win_scale default to 1 instead of 2 2) increase tcp_rmem[2] limit from 4MB to 6MB to take into account better truesize tracking and to allow autotuning tcp receive window to reach same value than before. Note that same amount of kernel memory is consumed compared to 2.6 kernels.

2012-05-02tcp: early retransmitYuchung Cheng
This patch implements RFC 5827 early retransmit (ER) for TCP. It reduces DUPACK threshold (dupthresh) if outstanding packets are less than 4 to recover losses by fast recovery instead of timeout. While the algorithm is simple, small but frequent network reordering makes this feature dangerous: the connection repeatedly enter false recovery and degrade performance. Therefore we implement a mitigation suggested in the appendix of the RFC that delays entering fast recovery by a small interval, i.e., RTT/4. Currently ER is conservative and is disabled for the rest of the connection after the first reordering event. A large scale web server experiment on the performance impact of ER is summarized in section 6 of the paper "Proportional Rate Reduction for TCP”, IMC 2011. http://conferences.sigcomm.org/imc/2011/docs/p155.pdf Note that Linux has a similar feature called THIN_DUPACK. The differences are THIN_DUPACK do not mitigate reorderings and is only used after slow start. Currently ER is disabled if THIN_DUPACK is enabled. I would be happy to merge THIN_DUPACK feature with ER if people think it's a good idea. ER is enabled by sysctl_tcp_early_retrans: 0: Disables ER 1: Reduce dupthresh to packets_out - 1 when outstanding packets < 4. 2: (Default) reduce dupthresh like mode 1. In addition, delay entering fast recovery by RTT/4. Note: mode 2 is implemented in the third part of this patch series.
