git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jesse/openvswitch Jesse Gross says: ==================== [GIT net-next] Open vSwitch Open vSwitch changes for net-next/3.14. Highlights are: * Performance improvements in the mechanism to get packets to userspace using memory mapped netlink and skb zero copy where appropriate. * Per-cpu flow stats in situations where flows are likely to be shared across CPUs. Standard flow stats are used in other situations to save memory and allocation time. * A handful of code cleanups and rationalization. ==================== Signed-off-by: David S.

2014-01-06genl: Add genlmsg_new_unicast() for unicast message allocationThomas Graf
Allocates a new sk_buff large enough to cover the specified payload plus required Netlink headers. Will check receiving socket for memory mapped i/o capability and use it if enabled. Will fall back to non-mapped skb if message size exceeds the frame size of the ring.

2013-11-28genetlink/pmcraid: use proper genetlink multicast APIJohannes Berg
The pmcraid driver is abusing the genetlink API and is using its family ID as the multicast group ID, which is invalid and may belong to somebody else (and likely will.) Make it use the correct API, but since this may already be used as-is by userspace, reserve a family ID for this code and also reserve that group ID to not break userspace assumptions. My previous patch broke event delivery in the driver as I missed that it wasn't using the right API and forgot to update it later in my series. While changing this, I noticed that the genetlink code could use the static group ID instead of a strcmp(), so also do that for the VFS_DQUOT family.

2013-11-21genetlink: fix genlmsg_multicast() bugJohannes Berg
Unfortunately, I introduced a tremendously stupid bug into genlmsg_multicast() when doing all those multicast group changes: it adjusts the group number, but then passes it to genlmsg_multicast_netns() which does that again. Somehow, my tests failed to catch this, so add a warning into genlmsg_multicast_netns() and remove the offending group ID adjustment. Also add a warning to the similar code in other functions so people who misuse them are more loudly warned. Signed-off-by: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@intel.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

2013-11-19genetlink: make multicast groups const, prevent abuseJohannes Berg
Register generic netlink multicast groups as an array with the family and give them contiguous group IDs. Then instead of passing the global group ID to the various functions that send messages, pass the ID relative to the family - for most families that's just 0 because the only have one group. This avoids the list_head and ID in each group, adding a new field for the mcast group ID offset to the family. At the same time, this allows us to prevent abusing groups again like the quota and dropmon code did, since we can now check that a family only uses a group it owns.

The drop monitor code is abusing the genetlink API and is statically using the generic netlink multicast group 1, even if that group belongs to somebody else (which it invariably will, since it's not reserved.) Make the drop monitor code use the proper APIs to reserve a group ID, but also reserve the group id 1 in generic netlink code to preserve the userspace API.

2013-11-19genetlink: only pass array to genl_register_family_with_ops()Johannes Berg
As suggested by David Miller, make genl_register_family_with_ops() a macro and pass only the array, evaluating ARRAY_SIZE() in the macro, this is a little safer. The openvswitch has some indirection, assing ops/n_ops directly in that code. This might ultimately just assign the pointers in the family initializations, saving the struct genl_family_and_ops and code (once mcast groups are handled differently.)

2013-11-14genetlink: register family ops as arrayJohannes Berg
Instead of using a linked list, use an array. This reduces the data size needed by the users of genetlink, for example in wireless (net/wireless/nl80211.c) on 64-bit it frees up over 1K of data space.

2013-08-28genl: Fix genl dumpit() locking.Pravin B Shelar
In case of genl-family with parallel ops off, dumpif() callback is expected to run under genl_lock, But commit def3117493eafd9df (genl: Allow concurrent genl callbacks.) changed this behaviour where only first dumpit() op was called under genl-lock. For subsequent dump, only nlk->cb_lock was taken. Following patch fixes it by defining locked dumpit() and done() callback which takes care of genl-locking.

2013-08-13genetlink: fix family dump raceJohannes Berg
When dumping generic netlink families, only the first dump call is locked with genl_lock(), which protects the list of families, and thus subsequent calls can access the data without locking, racing against family addition/removal. This can cause a crash. Fix it - the locking needs to be conditional because the first time around it's already locked. A similar bug was reported to me on an old kernel (3.4.47) but the exact scenario that happened there is no longer possible, on those kernels the first round wasn't locked either. Looking at the current code I found the race described above, which had also existed on the old kernel.

2013-07-30genetlink: fix usage of NLM_F_EXCL or NLM_F_REPLACEPablo Neira
Currently, it is not possible to use neither NLM_F_EXCL nor NLM_F_REPLACE from genetlink. This is due to this checking in genl_family_rcv_msg: if (nlh->nlmsg_flags & NLM_F_DUMP) NLM_F_DUMP is NLM_F_MATCH|NLM_F_ROOT. Thus, if NLM_F_EXCL or NLM_F_REPLACE flag is set, genetlink believes that you're requesting a dump and it calls the .dumpit callback. The solution that I propose is to refine this checking to make it stricter: if ((nlh->nlmsg_flags & NLM_F_DUMP) == NLM_F_DUMP) And given the combination NLM_F_REPLACE and NLM_F_EXCL does not make sense to me, it removes the ambiguity. There was a patch that tried to fix this some time ago (0ab03c2 netlink: test for all flags of the NLM_F_DUMP composite) but it tried to resolve this ambiguity in *all* existing netlink subsystems, not only genetlink. That patch was reverted since it broke iproute2, which is using NLM_F_ROOT to request the dump of the routing cache. Signed-off-by: Pablo Neira Ayuso <pablo@netfilter.org> Signed-off-by: David S.

2012-06-29netlink: add netlink_kernel_cfg parameter to netlink_kernel_createPablo Neira Ayuso
This patch adds the following structure: struct netlink_kernel_cfg { unsigned int groups; void (*input)(struct sk_buff *skb); struct mutex *cb_mutex; }; That can be passed to netlink_kernel_create to set optional configurations for netlink kernel sockets. I've populated this structure by looking for NULL and zero parameters at the existing code. The remaining parameters that always need to be set are still left in the original interface. That includes optional parameters for the netlink socket creation. This allows easy extensibility of this interface in the future. This patch also adapts all callers to use this new interface.

2012-05-29genetlink: Build a generic netlink family module aliasNeil Horman
Generic netlink searches for -type- formatted aliases when requesting a module to fulfill a protocol request (i.e. net-pf-16-proto-16-type-<x>, where x is a type value). However generic netlink protocols have no well defined type numbers, they have string names. Modify genl_ctrl_getfamily to request an alias in the format net-pf-16-proto-16-family-<x> instead, where x is a generic string, and add a macro that builds on the previously added MODULE_ALIAS_NET_PF_PROTO_NAME macro to allow modules to specifify those generic strings. Note, l2tp previously hacked together an net-pf-16-proto-16-type-l2tp alias using the MODULE_ALIAS macro, with these updates we can convert that to use the PROTO_NAME macro.

2012-01-05security: remove the security_netlink_recv hook as it is equivalent to capable()Eric Paris
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>

2011-06-09rtnetlink: Compute and store minimum ifinfo dump sizeGreg Rose
The message size allocated for rtnl ifinfo dumps was limited to a single page. This is not enough for additional interface info available with devices that support SR-IOV and caused a bug in which VF info would not be displayed if more than approximately 40 VFs were created per interface. Implement a new function pointer for the rtnl_register service that will calculate the amount of data required for the ifinfo dump and allocate enough data to satisfy the request.

Due to NLM_F_DUMP is composed of two bits, NLM_F_ROOT | NLM_F_MATCH, when doing "if (x & NLM_F_DUMP)", it tests for _either_ of the bits being set. Because NLM_F_MATCH's value overlaps with NLM_F_EXCL, non-dump requests with NLM_F_EXCL set are mistaken as dump requests. Substitute the condition to test for _all_ bits being set.

2010-10-05genetlink: introduce pre_doit/post_doit hooksJohannes Berg
Each family may have some amount of boilerplate locking code that applies to most, or even all, commands. This allows a family to handle such things in a more generic way, by allowing it to a) include private flags in each operation b) specify a pre_doit hook that is called, before an operation's doit() callback and may return an error directly, c) specify a post_doit hook that can undo locking or similar things done by pre_doit, and finally d) include two private pointers in each info struct passed between all these operations including doit().
