2009-11-06ieee802154: add support for creation/removal of logic interfacesDmitry Eremin-Solenikov
Add support for two more NL802154 commands: ADD_IFACE and DEL_IFACE, thus allowing creation and removal of logic WPAN interfaces on the top of wpan-phy. Signed-off-by: Dmitry Eremin-Solenikov <dbaryshkov@gmail.com>

2009-11-06ieee802154: merge nl802154 and wpan-class in single moduleDmitry Eremin-Solenikov
There is no real need to have ieee802154 interfaces separate into several small modules, as neither of them has it's own use. Signed-off-by: Dmitry Eremin-Solenikov <dbaryshkov@gmail.com>
2009-11-06wpan-phy: follow usual patter of devices registrationDmitry Eremin-Solenikov
Follow the usual pattern of devices registration by adding new function (wpan_phy_set_dev) that sets child->parent relationship and removing parent argument from wpan_phy_register call. Signed-off-by: Dmitry Eremin-Solenikov <dbaryshkov@gmail.com>
2009-11-06wpan-phy: allow specifying a per-page channel maskDmitry Eremin-Solenikov
IEEE 802.15.4-2006 defines channel pages that hold channels (max 32 pages, 27 channels per page). Allow the driver to specify supported channels on pages, other than the first one. Signed-off-by: Dmitry Eremin-Solenikov <dbaryshkov@gmail.com>

2009-11-06wpan-phy: init channel/page fieldsDmitry Eremin-Solenikov
Set page to zero (for compatibility w/ devices supporting only first page). Also init channel by default to -1 to disallow transfers for non-initialised devices. Signed-off-by: Dmitry Eremin-Solenikov <dbaryshkov@gmail.com>

2009-11-04tcp: Use defaults when no route options are availableGilad Ben-Yossef
Trying to parse the option of a SYN packet that we have no route entry for should just use global wide defaults for route entry options. Signed-off-by: Gilad Ben-Yossef <gilad@codefidence.com> Tested-by: Valdis.Kletnieks@vt.edu Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2009-11-04tcp: Do not call IPv4 specific func in tcp_check_reqGilad Ben-Yossef
Calling IPv4 specific inet_csk_route_req in tcp_check_req is a bad idea and crashes machine on IPv6 connections, as reported by Valdis Kletnieks Also, all we are really interested in is the timestamp option in the header, so calling tcp_parse_options() with the "estab" set to false flag is an overkill as it tries to parse half a dozen other TCP options. We know whether timestamp should be enabled or not using data from request_sock. Signed-off-by: Gilad Ben-Yossef <gilad@codefidence.com> Tested-by: Valdis.Kletnieks@vt.edu Signed-off-by: David S.

Adds RCU management to the list of netdevices. Convert some for_each_netdev() users to RCU version, if it can avoid read_lock-ing dev_base_lock Ie: read_lock(&dev_base_loack); for_each_netdev(net, dev) some_action(); read_unlock(&dev_base_lock); becomes : rcu_read_lock(); for_each_netdev_rcu(net, dev) some_action(); rcu_read_unlock(); Signed-off-by: Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

2009-11-02packet: less dev_put() callsEric Dumazet
- packet_sendmsg_spkt() can use dev_get_by_name_rcu() to avoid touching device refcount. - packet_getname_spkt() & packet_getname() can use dev_get_by_index_rcu() to avoid touching device refcount too. tpacket_snd() & packet_snd() can not use RCU yet because they can sleep when allocating skb.

2009-11-01veth: Fix unregister_netdevice_queue for vethEric W. Biederman
I tested the recent unregister many changes and got a weird, nasty and seemingly unrelasted kernel oops. Changing unregister_netdevice_queue to use list_move_tail fixes the problem for me. ip link add type veth rmmod veth ls /sys/class/net/ showed one of the veth devices still present. A subsequent ip link oopsed the box. Signed-off-by: "Eric W. Biederman" <ebiederm@xmission.com> Acked-by: Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2009-11-01net: Introduce dev_get_by_name_rcu()Eric Dumazet
Some workloads hit dev_base_lock rwlock pretty hard. We can use RCU lookups to avoid touching this rwlock (and avoid touching netdevice refcount) netdevices are already freed after a RCU grace period, so this patch adds no penalty at device dismantle time. However, it adds a synchronize_rcu() call in dev_change_name() Signed-off-by: Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2009-10-30RDS/IB+IW: Move recv processing to a taskletAndy Grover

2009-10-30RDS: Do not send congestion updates to loopback connectionsAndy Grover
This issue was discovered by HP's Pradeep and fixed in OFED 1.3, but not fixed in later versions, since the fix's implementation was not immediately applyable to the later code. This patch should do the trick for 1.4+ codebases. Signed-off-by: Andy Grover <andy.grover@oracle.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2009-10-30RDS: Fix panic on unloadAndy Grover
Remove explicit destruction of passive connection when destroying active end of the connection. The passive end is also on the device's connection list, and will thus be cleaned up properly. Panic was caused by trying to clean it up twice. Signed-off-by: Andy Grover <andy.grover@oracle.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2009-10-30RDS: Fix potential race around rds_i[bw]_allocationAndy Grover
"At rds_ib_recv_refill_one(), it first executes atomic_read(&rds_ib_allocation) for if-condition checking, and then executes atomic_inc(&rds_ib_allocation) if the condition was not satisfied. However, if any other code which updates rds_ib_allocation executes between these two atomic operation executions, it seems that it may result race condition. (especially when rds_ib_allocation + 1 == rds_ib_sysctl_max_recv_allocation)" This patch fixes this by using atomic_inc_unless to eliminate the possibility of allocating more than rds_ib_sysctl_max_recv_allocation and then decrementing the count if the allocation fails. It also makes an identical change to the iwarp transport. Reported-by: Shin Hong <hongshin@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Andy Grover <andy.grover@oracle.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2009-10-30RDS: Add GET_MR_FOR_DEST sockoptAndy Grover
RDS currently supports a GET_MR sockopt to establish a memory region (MR) for a chunk of memory. However, the fastreg method ties a MR to a particular destination. The GET_MR_FOR_DEST sockopt allows the remote machine to be specified, and thus support for fastreg (aka FRWRs). Note that this patch does *not* do all of this - it simply implements the new sockopt in terms of the old one, so applications can begin to use the new sockopt in preparation for cutover to FRWRs.

2009-10-29vlan: cleanup multiple unregistrationsPatrick McHardy
The temporary copy of the VLAN group is not neccessary since the lower device is already in the process of being unregistered, if it was neccessary the memset of the global group would introduce a race condition. With this removed, the changes to the original code are only a few lines, so remove the new function and move the code back into vlan_device_event().

2009-10-29net: Fix 'Re: PACKET_TX_RING: packet size is too long'Gabor Gombas
Currently PACKET_TX_RING forces certain amount of every frame to remain unused. This probably originates from an early version of the PACKET_TX_RING patch that in fact used the extra space when the (since removed) CONFIG_PACKET_MMAP_ZERO_COPY option was enabled. The current code does not make any use of this extra space. This patch removes the extra space reservation and lets userspace make use of the full frame size.

2009-10-29net,socket: introduce DECLARE_SOCKADDR helper to catch overflow at build timeCyrill Gorcunov
proto_ops->getname implies copying protocol specific data into storage unit (particulary to __kernel_sockaddr_storage). So when we implement new protocol support we should keep such a detail in mind (which is easy to forget about). Lets introduce DECLARE_SOCKADDR helper which check if storage unit is not overfowed at build time. Eventually inet_getname is switched to use DECLARE_SOCKADDR (to show example of usage).
