2013-09-20fib_rules.h: Remove extern from function prototypesJoe Perches
There are a mix of function prototypes with and without extern in the kernel sources. Standardize on not using extern for function prototypes. Function prototypes don't need to be written with extern. extern is assumed by the compiler. Its use is as unnecessary as using auto to declare automatic/local variables in a block.

2013-08-03fib_rules: fix suppressor names and default valuesStefan Tomanek
This change brings the suppressor attribute names into line; it also changes the data types to provide a more consistent interface. While -1 indicates that the suppressor is not enabled, values >= 0 for suppress_prefixlen or suppress_ifgroup reject routing decisions violating the constraint. This changes the previously presented behaviour of suppress_prefixlen, where a prefix length _less_ than the attribute value was rejected. After this change, a prefix length less than *or* equal to the value is considered a violation of the rule constraint. It also changes the default values for default and newly added rules (disabling any suppression for those). Signed-off-by: Stefan Tomanek <stefan.tomanek@wertarbyte.de> Signed-off-by: David S.

2013-08-02fib_rules: add route suppression based on ifgroupStefan Tomanek

2013-07-31fib_rules: add .suppress operationStefan Tomanek
This change adds a new operation to the fib_rules_ops struct; it allows the suppression of routing decisions if certain criteria are not met by its results. The first implemented constraint is a minimum prefix length added to the structures of routing rules. If a rule is added with a minimum prefix length >0, only routes meeting this threshold will be considered. Any other (more general) routing table entries will be ignored. When configuring a system with multiple network uplinks and default routes, it is often convinient to reference the main routing table multiple times - but omitting the default route. Using this patch and a modified "ip" utility, this can be achieved by using the following command sequence: $ ip route add table secuplink default via $ ip rule add pref 100 table main prefixlength 1 $ ip rule add pref 150 fwmark 0xA table secuplink With this setup, packets marked 0xA will be processed by the additional routing table "secuplink", but only if no suitable route in the main routing table can be found. By using a minimal prefixlength of 1, the default route (/0) of the table "main" is hidden to packets processed by rule 100; packets traveling to destinations with more specific routing entries are processed as usual.

2012-06-29ipv4: Elide fib_validate_source() completely when possible.David S. Miller
If rpfilter is off (or the SKB has an IPSEC path) and there are not tclassid users, we don't have to do anything at all when fib_validate_source() is invoked besides setting the itag to zero. We monitor tclassid uses with a counter (modified only under RTNL and marked __read_mostly) and we protect the fib_validate_source() real work with a test against this counter and whether rpfilter is to be done. Having a way to know whether we need no tclassid processing or not also opens the door for future optimized rpfilter algorithms that do not perform full FIB lookups. Signed-off-by: David S.

2010-03-30include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking ↵Tejun Heo
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.

2007-04-25[NET] fib_rules: goto rule actionThomas Graf
This patch adds a new rule action FR_ACT_GOTO which allows to skip a set of rules by jumping to another rule. The rule to jump to is specified via the FRA_GOTO attribute which carries a rule preference. Referring to a rule which doesn't exists is explicitely allowed. Such goto rules are marked with the flag FIB_RULE_UNRESOLVED and will act like a rule with a non-matching selector. The rule will become functional as soon as its target is present. The goto action enables performance optimizations by reducing the average number of rules that have to be passed per lookup. Example: 0: from all lookup local 40: not from all to goto 32766 41: from all fwmark 0xa blackhole 42: from all fwmark 0xff blackhole 32766: from all lookup main Signed-off-by: Thomas Graf <tgraf@suug.ch> Signed-off-by: David S.

2007-03-25[NET]: Fix fib_rules compatibility breakageThomas Graf
Based upon a patch from Patrick McHardy. The fib_rules netlink attribute policy introduced in 2.6.19 broke userspace compatibilty. When specifying a rule with "from all" or "to all", iproute adds a zero byte long netlink attribute, but the policy requires all addresses to have a size equal to sizeof(struct in_addr)/sizeof(struct in6_addr), resulting in a validation error. Check attribute length of FRA_SRC/FRA_DST in the generic framework by letting the family specific rules implementation provide the length of an address. Report an error if address length is non zero but no address attribute is provided. Fix actual bug by checking address length for non-zero instead of relying on availability of attribute.

2006-09-22[NET]: Introduce RTA_TABLE/FRA_TABLE attributesPatrick McHardy
Introduce RTA_TABLE route attribute and FRA_TABLE routing rule attribute to hold 32 bit routing table IDs. Usespace compatibility is provided by continuing to accept and send the rtm_table field, but because of its limited size it can only carry the low 8 bits of the table ID. This implies that if larger IDs are used, _all_ userspace programs using them need to use RTA_TABLE. Signed-off-by: Patrick McHardy <kaber@trash.net> Signed-off-by: David S.
