2019-06-15bpf: net: Add SO_DETACH_REUSEPORT_BPFMartin KaFai Lau
There is SO_ATTACH_REUSEPORT_[CE]BPF but there is no DETACH. This patch adds SO_DETACH_REUSEPORT_BPF sockopt. The same sockopt can be used to undo both SO_ATTACH_REUSEPORT_[CE]BPF. reseport_detach_prog() is added and it is mostly a mirror of the existing reuseport_attach_prog(). The differences are, it does not call reuseport_alloc() and returns -ENOENT when there is no old prog.

2019-03-11y2038: fix socket.h header inclusionArnd Bergmann
Referencing the __kernel_long_t type caused some user space applications to stop compiling when they had not already included linux/posix_types.h, e.g. s/multicast.c -o ext/sockets/multicast.lo In file included from /builddir/build/BUILD/php-7.3.3/main/php.h:468, from /builddir/build/BUILD/php-7.3.3/ext/sockets/sockets.c:27: /builddir/build/BUILD/php-7.3.3/ext/sockets/sockets.c: In function 'zm_startup_sockets': /builddir/build/BUILD/php-7.3.3/ext/sockets/sockets.c:776:40: error: '__kernel_long_t' undeclared (first use in this function) 776 | REGISTER_LONG_CONSTANT("SO_SNDTIMEO", SO_SNDTIMEO, CONST_CS | CONST_PERSISTENT); It is safe to include that header here, since it only contains kernel internal types that do not conflict with other user space types. It's still possible that some related build failures remain, but those are likely to be for code that is not already y2038 safe.

2019-02-03socket: Rename SO_RCVTIMEO/ SO_SNDTIMEO with _OLD suffixesDeepa Dinamani
SO_RCVTIMEO and SO_SNDTIMEO socket options use struct timeval as the time format. struct timeval is not y2038 safe. The subsequent patches in the series add support for new socket timeout options with _NEW suffix that will use y2038 safe data structures. Although the existing struct timeval layout is sufficiently wide to represent timeouts, because of the way libc will interpret time_t based on user defined flag, these new flags provide a way of having a structure that is the same for all architectures consistently. Rename the existing options with _OLD suffix forms so that the right option is enabled for userspace applications according to the architecture and time_t definition of libc.

2019-01-17net: introduce SO_BINDTOIFINDEX sockoptDavid Herrmann
This introduces a new generic SOL_SOCKET-level socket option called SO_BINDTOIFINDEX. It behaves similar to SO_BINDTODEVICE, but takes a network interface index as argument, rather than the network interface name. User-space often refers to network-interfaces via their index, but has to temporarily resolve it to a name for a call into SO_BINDTODEVICE. This might pose problems when the network-device is renamed asynchronously by other parts of the system. When this happens, the SO_BINDTODEVICE might either fail, or worse, it might bind to the wrong device. In most cases user-space only ever operates on devices which they either manage themselves, or otherwise have a guarantee that the device name will not change (e.g., devices that are UP cannot be renamed). However, particularly in libraries this guarantee is non-obvious and it would be nice if that race-condition would simply not exist. It would make it easier for those libraries to operate even in situations where the device-name might change under the hood. A real use-case that we recently hit is trying to start the network stack early in the initrd but make it survive into the real system. Existing distributions rename network-interfaces during the transition from initrd into the real system. This, obviously, cannot affect devices that are up and running (unless you also consider moving them between network-namespaces). However, the network manager now has to make sure its management engine for dormant devices will not run in parallel to these renames. Particularly, when you offload operations like DHCP into separate processes, these might setup their sockets early, and thus have to resolve the device-name possibly running into this race-condition. By avoiding a call to resolve the device-name, we no longer depend on the name and can run network setup of dormant devices in parallel to the transition off the initrd. The SO_BINDTOIFINDEX ioctl plugs this race.

This patch introduces SO_TXTIME. User space enables this option in order to pass a desired future transmit time in a CMSG when calling sendmsg(2). The argument to this socket option is a 8-bytes long struct provided by the uapi header net_tstamp.h defined as: struct sock_txtime { clockid_t clockid; u32 flags; }; Note that new fields were added to struct sock by filling a 2-bytes hole found in the struct.

2017-11-02License cleanup: add SPDX license identifier to uapi header files with no ↵Greg Kroah-Hartman
license Many user space API headers are missing licensing information, which makes it hard for compliance tools to determine the correct license. By default are files without license information under the default license of the kernel, which is GPLV2. Marking them GPLV2 would exclude them from being included in non GPLV2 code, which is obviously not intended. The user space API headers fall under the syscall exception which is in the kernels COPYING file: NOTE! This copyright does *not* cover user programs that use kernel services by normal system calls - this is merely considered normal use of the kernel, and does *not* fall under the heading of "derived work". otherwise syscall usage would not be possible. Update the files which contain no license information with an SPDX license identifier. The chosen identifier is 'GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note' which is the officially assigned identifier for the Linux syscall exception. SPDX license identifiers are a legally binding shorthand, which can be used instead of the full boiler plate text. This patch is based on work done by Thomas Gleixner and Kate Stewart and Philippe Ombredanne. See the previous patch in this series for the methodology of how this patch was researched.

2017-06-21net: introduce SO_PEERGROUPS getsockoptDavid Herrmann
This adds the new getsockopt(2) option SO_PEERGROUPS on SOL_SOCKET to retrieve the auxiliary groups of the remote peer. It is designed to naturally extend SO_PEERCRED. That is, the underlying data is from the same credentials. Regarding its syntax, it is based on SO_PEERSEC. That is, if the provided buffer is too small, ERANGE is returned and @optlen is updated. Otherwise, the information is copied, @optlen is set to the actual size, and 0 is returned. While SO_PEERCRED (and thus `struct ucred') already returns the primary group, it lacks the auxiliary group vector. However, nearly all access controls (including kernel side VFS and SYSVIPC, but also user-space polkit, DBus, ...) consider the entire set of groups, rather than just the primary group. But this is currently not possible with pure SO_PEERCRED. Instead, user-space has to work around this and query the system database for the auxiliary groups of a UID retrieved via SO_PEERCRED. Unfortunately, there is no race-free way to query the auxiliary groups of the PID/UID retrieved via SO_PEERCRED. Hence, the current user-space solution is to use getgrouplist(3p), which itself falls back to NSS and whatever is configured in nsswitch.conf(3). This effectively checks which groups we *would* assign to the user if it logged in *now*. On normal systems it is as easy as reading /etc/group, but with NSS it can resort to quering network databases (eg., LDAP), using IPC or network communication. Long story short: Whenever we want to use auxiliary groups for access checks on IPC, we need further IPC to talk to the user/group databases, rather than just relying on SO_PEERCRED and the incoming socket. This is unfortunate, and might even result in dead-locks if the database query uses the same IPC as the original request. So far, those recursions / dead-locks have been avoided by using primitive IPC for all crucial NSS modules. However, we want to avoid re-inventing the wheel for each NSS module that might be involved in user/group queries. Hence, we would preferably make DBus (and other IPC that supports access-management based on groups) work without resorting to the user/group database. This new SO_PEERGROUPS ioctl would allow us to make dbus-daemon work without ever calling into NSS.

2016-11-30tcp: SOF_TIMESTAMPING_OPT_STATS option for SO_TIMESTAMPINGFrancis Yan
This patch exports the sender chronograph stats via the socket SO_TIMESTAMPING channel. Currently we can instrument how long a particular application unit of data was queued in TCP by tracking SOF_TIMESTAMPING_TX_SOFTWARE and SOF_TIMESTAMPING_TX_SCHED. Having these sender chronograph stats exported simultaneously along with these timestamps allow further breaking down the various sender limitation. For example, a video server can tell if a particular chunk of video on a connection takes a long time to deliver because TCP was experiencing small receive window. It is not possible to tell before this patch without packet traces. To prepare these stats, the user needs to set SOF_TIMESTAMPING_OPT_STATS and SOF_TIMESTAMPING_OPT_TSONLY flags while requesting other SOF_TIMESTAMPING TX timestamps. When the timestamps are available in the error queue, the stats are returned in a separate control message of type SCM_TIMESTAMPING_OPT_STATS, in a list of TLVs (struct nlattr) of types: TCP_NLA_BUSY_TIME, TCP_NLA_RWND_LIMITED, TCP_NLA_SNDBUF_LIMITED.

2016-02-25net: Facility to report route quality of connected socketsTom Herbert
This patch add the SO_CNX_ADVICE socket option (setsockopt only). The purpose is to allow an application to give feedback to the kernel about the quality of the network path for a connected socket. The value argument indicates the type of quality report. For this initial patch the only supported advice is a value of 1 which indicates "bad path, please reroute"-- the action taken by the kernel is to call dst_negative_advice which will attempt to choose a different ECMP route, reset the TX hash for flow label and UDP source port in encapsulation, etc. This facility should be useful for connected UDP sockets where only the application can provide any feedback about path quality. It could also be useful for TCP applications that have additional knowledge about the path outside of the normal TCP control loop.

2014-11-11net: introduce SO_INCOMING_CPUEric Dumazet
Alternative to RPS/RFS is to use hardware support for multiple queues. Then split a set of million of sockets into worker threads, each one using epoll() to manage events on its own socket pool. Ideally, we want one thread per RX/TX queue/cpu, but we have no way to know after accept() or connect() on which queue/cpu a socket is managed. We normally use one cpu per RX queue (IRQ smp_affinity being properly set), so remembering on socket structure which cpu delivered last packet is enough to solve the problem. After accept(), connect(), or even file descriptor passing around processes, applications can use : int cpu; socklen_t len = sizeof(cpu); getsockopt(fd, SOL_SOCKET, SO_INCOMING_CPU, &cpu, &len); And use this information to put the socket into the right silo for optimal performance, as all networking stack should run on the appropriate cpu, without need to send IPI (RPS/RFS).

2014-01-18net: introduce SO_BPF_EXTENSIONSMichal Sekletar

For querying all extensions at once this might be rather inconvenient. Therefore, this patch introduces a new option which can be used as an argument for getsockopt(), and allows one to obtain information about which BPF extensions are supported by the current kernel. As David Miller suggests, we do not need to define any bits right now and status quo can just return 0 in order to state that this versions supports SKF_AD_PROTOCOL up to SKF_AD_PAY_OFFSET. Later additions to BPF extensions need to add their bits to the bpf_tell_extensions() function, as documented in the comment.

Currently, when a socket receives something on the error queue it only wakes up the socket on select if it is in the "read" list, that is the socket has something to read. It is useful also to wake the socket if it is in the error list, which would enable software to wait on error queue packets without waking up for regular data on the socket. The main use case is for receiving timestamped transmit packets which return the timestamp to the socket via the error queue.

While a privileged program can open a raw socket, attach some restrictive filter and drop its privileges (or send the socket to an unprivileged program through some Unix socket), the filter can still be removed or modified by the unprivileged program. This commit adds a socket option to lock the filter (SO_LOCK_FILTER) preventing any modification of a socket filter program. This is similar to OpenBSD BIOCLOCK ioctl on bpf sockets, except even root is not allowed change/drop the filter. The state of the lock can be read with getsockopt(). No error is triggered if the state is not changed. -EPERM is returned when a user tries to remove the lock or to change/remove the filter while the lock is active. The check is done directly in sk_attach_filter() and sk_detach_filter() and does not affect only setsockopt() syscall. Signed-off-by: Vincent Bernat <bernat@luffy.cx> Signed-off-by: David S.
