2013-06-26net: fix kernel deadlock with interface rename and netdev name retrieval.Nicolas Schichan
When the kernel (compiled with CONFIG_PREEMPT=n) is performing the rename of a network interface, it can end up waiting for a workqueue to complete. If userland is able to invoke a SIOCGIFNAME ioctl or a SO_BINDTODEVICE getsockopt in between, the kernel will deadlock due to the fact that read_secklock_begin() will spin forever waiting for the writer process (the one doing the interface rename) to update the devnet_rename_seq sequence. This patch fixes the problem by adding a helper (netdev_get_name()) and using it in the code handling the SIOCGIFNAME ioctl and SO_BINDTODEVICE setsockopt. The netdev_get_name() helper uses raw_seqcount_begin() to avoid spinning forever, waiting for devnet_rename_seq->sequence to become even. cond_resched() is used in the contended case, before retrying the access to give the writer process a chance to finish. The use of raw_seqcount_begin() will incur some unneeded work in the reader process in the contended case, but this is better than deadlocking the system.

commit 68c331631143 ("v4 GRE: Add TCP segmentation offload for GRE") added a possible skb leak, because it frees only the head of segment list, in case a skb_linearize() call fails. This patch adds a kfree_skb_list() helper to fix the bug.

2013-06-17vlan: restore ethtool ABI to control VLAN hardware accelerationFernando Luis Vazquez Cao
As part of the push to add 802.1ad server provider tagging support to the kernel the VLAN features flags were renamed. Unfortunately the kernel name for the VLAN hardware acceleration features that the kernel shows user space was included in the rename, which broke ethtool (txvlan and rxvlan options do not work). This patch restores the original names, i.e. the original ABI. If we wanted to make clear to users that we are refering to CTAGs we can always change ethtool's short_name and long_name for these features (for example something along the lines of txvlan -> txvlan-ctag, tx-vlan-offload -> tx-vlan-ctag-offload).

2013-06-04net: fix sk_buff head without data areaPablo Neira
Eric Dumazet spotted that we have to check skb->head instead of skb->data as skb->head points to the beginning of the data area of the skbuff. Similarly, we have to initialize the skb->head pointer, not skb->data in __alloc_skb_head. After this fix, netlink crashes in the release path of the sk_buff, so let's fix that as well.

2013-05-31net/core: dev_mc_sync_multiple calls wrong helperJay Vosburgh
The dev_mc_sync_multiple function is currently calling __hw_addr_sync, and not __hw_addr_sync_multiple. This will result in addresses only being synced to the first device from the set.

2013-05-31net/core: __hw_addr_sync_one / _multiple brokenJay Vosburgh
Currently, __hw_addr_sync_one is called in a loop by __hw_addr_sync_multiple to sync each of a "from" device's hw addresses to a "to" device. __hw_addr_sync_one calls __hw_addr_add_ex to attempt to add each address. __hw_addr_add_ex is called with global=false, and sync=true. __hw_addr_add_ex checks to see if the new address matches an address already on the list. If so, it tests global and sync. In this case, sync=true, and it then checks if the address is already synced, and if so, returns 0. This 0 return causes __hw_addr_sync_one to increment the sync_cnt and refcount for the "from" list's address entry, even though the address is already synced and has a reference and sync_cnt. This will cause the sync_cnt and refcount to increment without bound every time an addresses is added to the "from" device and synced to the "to" device. The fix here has two parts: First, when __hw_addr_add_ex finds the address already exists and is synced, return -EEXIST instead of 0. Second, __hw_addr_sync_one checks the error return for -EEXIST, and if so, it (a) does not add a refcount/sync_cnt, and (b) returns 0 itself so that __hw_addr_sync_multiple will not return an error.

2013-05-31net/core: __hw_addr_unsync_one "from" address not marked syncedJay Vosburgh
When an address is added to a subordinate interface (the "to" list), the address entry in the "from" list is not marked "synced" as the entry added to the "to" list is. When performing the unsync operation (e.g., dev_mc_unsync), __hw_addr_unsync_one calls __hw_addr_del_entry with the "synced" parameter set to true for the case when the address reference is being released from the "from" list. This causes a test inside to fail, with the result being that the reference count on the "from" address is not properly decremeted and the address on the "from" list will never be freed. Correct this by having __hw_addr_unsync_one call the __hw_addr_del_entry function with the "sync" flag set to false for the "remove from the from list" case.

2013-05-11ipv6: do not clear pinet6 fieldEric Dumazet
We have seen multiple NULL dereferences in __inet6_lookup_established() After analysis, I found that inet6_sk() could be NULL while the check for sk_family == AF_INET6 was true. Bug was added in linux-2.6.29 when RCU lookups were introduced in UDP and TCP stacks. Once an IPv6 socket, using SLAB_DESTROY_BY_RCU is inserted in a hash table, we no longer can clear pinet6 field. This patch extends logic used in commit fcbdf09d9652c891 ("net: fix nulls list corruptions in sk_prot_alloc") TCP/UDP/UDPLite IPv6 protocols provide their own .clear_sk() method to make sure we do not clear pinet6 field. At socket clone phase, we do not really care, as cloning the parent (non NULL) pinet6 is not adding a fatal race. Signed-off-by: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@google.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

This allows users to add multicast addresses using the fdb API. However, the check in rtnl_fdb_del() still uses a more strict is_valid_ether_addr() which rejects multicast addresses.

An IGB conflict existed because in 'net' the build_skb() support was reverted, and in 'net-next' there was a comment style fix within that code. Several batman-adv conflicts were resolved by making sure that all calls to batadv_is_my_mac() are changed to have a new bat_priv first argument. Eric Dumazet's TS ECR fix in TCP in 'net' conflicted with the F-RTO rewrite in 'net-next', mostly overlapping changes.

2013-04-19net: rate-limit warn-bad-offload splats.Ben Greear
If one does do something unfortunate and allow a bad offload bug into the kernel, this the skb_warn_bad_offload can effectively live-lock the system, filling the logs with the same error over and over.

2013-04-19net: add function to allocate sk_buff head without data areaPatrick McHardy
Add a function to allocate a sk_buff head without any data. This will be used by memory mapped netlink to attach data from the mmaped area to the skb. Additionally change skb_release_all() to check whether the skb has a data area to allow the skb destructor to clear the data pointer in case only a head has been allocated.

2013-04-19net: vlan: add 802.1ad supportPatrick McHardy
Add support for 802.1ad VLAN devices. This mainly consists of checking for ETH_P_8021AD in addition to ETH_P_8021Q in a couple of places and check offloading capabilities based on the used protocol. Configuration is done using "ip link": # ip link add link eth0 eth0.1000 \ type vlan proto 802.1ad id 1000 # ip link add link eth0.1000 eth0.1000.1000 \ type vlan proto 802.1q id 1000 52:54:00:12:34:56 > 92:b1:54:28:e4:8c, ethertype 802.1Q (0x8100), length 106: vlan 1000, p 0, ethertype 802.1Q, vlan 1000, p 0, ethertype IPv4, (tos 0x0, ttl 64, id 0, offset 0, flags [DF], proto ICMP (1), length 84) > ICMP echo request, id 3003, seq 8, length 64 92:b1:54:28:e4:8c > 52:54:00:12:34:56, ethertype 802.1Q-QinQ (0x88a8), length 106: vlan 1000, p 0, ethertype 802.1Q, vlan 1000, p 0, ethertype IPv4, (tos 0x0, ttl 64, id 47944, offset 0, flags [none], proto ICMP (1), length 84) > ICMP echo reply, id 3003, seq 8, length 64 Signed-off-by: Patrick McHardy <kaber@trash.net> Signed-off-by: David S.

2013-04-19net: vlan: add protocol argument to packet tagging functionsPatrick McHardy
Add a protocol argument to the VLAN packet tagging functions. In case of HW tagging, we need that protocol available in the ndo_start_xmit functions, so it is stored in a new field in the skb. The new field fits into a hole (on 64 bit) and doesn't increase the sks's size. Signed-off-by: Patrick McHardy <kaber@trash.net> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>

2013-04-15net: add dev_uc_sync_multiple() and dev_mc_sync_multiple() apiVlad Yasevich
The current implementation of dev_uc_sync/unsync() assumes that there is a strict 1-to-1 relationship between the source and destination of the sync. In other words, once an address has been synced to a destination device, it will not be synced to any other device through the sync API. However, there are some virtual devices that aggreate a number of lower devices and need to sync addresses to all of them. The current API falls short there. This patch introduces a new dev_uc_sync_multiple() api that can be called in the above circumstances and allows sync to work for every invocation.

2013-04-07scm: Stop passing struct credEric W. Biederman
Now that uids and gids are completely encapsulated in kuid_t and kgid_t we no longer need to pass struct cred which allowed us to test both the uid and the user namespace for equality. Passing struct cred potentially allows us to pass the entire group list as BSD does but I don't believe the cost of cache line misses justifies retaining code for a future potential application.
