Merge branch 'master' of git://1984.lsi.us.es/nf-next
Pablo Neira Ayuso says: ==================== This batch contains netfilter updates for you net-next tree, they are: * The new connlabel extension for x_tables, that allows us to attach labels to each conntrack flow. The kernel implementation uses a bitmask and there's a file in user-space that maps the bits with the corresponding string for each existing label. By now, you can attach up to 128 overlapping labels. From Florian Westphal. * A new round of improvements for the netns support for conntrack. Gao feng has moved many of the initialization code of each module of the netns init path. He also made several code refactoring, that code looks cleaner to me now. * Added documentation for all possible tweaks for nf_conntrack via sysctl, from Jiri Pirko. * Cisco 7941/7945 IP phone support for our SIP conntrack helper, from Kevin Cernekee. * Missing header file in the snmp helper, from Stephen Hemminger. * Finally, a couple of fixes to resolve minor issues with these changes, from myself. ==================== Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>

+/proc/sys/net/netfilter/nf_conntrack_* Variables:
+
+nf_conntrack_acct - BOOLEAN
+ 0 - disabled (default)
+ not 0 - enabled
+
+ Enable connection tracking flow accounting. 64-bit byte and packet
+ counters per flow are added.
+
+nf_conntrack_buckets - INTEGER (read-only)
+ Size of hash table. If not specified as parameter during module
+ loading, the default size is calculated by dividing total memory
+ by 16384 to determine the number of buckets but the hash table will
+ never have fewer than 32 or more than 16384 buckets.
+
+nf_conntrack_checksum - BOOLEAN
+ 0 - disabled
+ not 0 - enabled (default)
+
+ Verify checksum of incoming packets. Packets with bad checksums are
+ in INVALID state. If this is enabled, such packets will not be
+ considered for connection tracking.
+
+nf_conntrack_count - INTEGER (read-only)
+ Number of currently allocated flow entries.
+
+nf_conntrack_events - BOOLEAN
+ 0 - disabled
+ not 0 - enabled (default)
+
+ If this option is enabled, the connection tracking code will
+ provide userspace with connection tracking events via ctnetlink.
+
+nf_conntrack_events_retry_timeout - INTEGER (seconds)
+ default 15
+
+ This option is only relevant when "reliable connection tracking
+ events" are used. Normally, ctnetlink is "lossy", that is,
+ events are normally dropped when userspace listeners can't keep up.
+
+ Userspace can request "reliable event mode". When this mode is
+ active, the conntrack will only be destroyed after the event was
+ delivered. If event delivery fails, the kernel periodically
+ re-tries to send the event to userspace.
+
+ This is the maximum interval the kernel should use when re-trying
+ to deliver the destroy event.
+
+ A higher number means there will be fewer delivery retries and it
+ will take longer for a backlog to be processed.
+
+nf_conntrack_expect_max - INTEGER
+ Maximum size of expectation table. Default value is
+ nf_conntrack_buckets / 256. Minimum is 1.
+
+nf_conntrack_frag6_high_thresh - INTEGER
+ default 262144
+
+ Maximum memory used to reassemble IPv6 fragments. When
+ nf_conntrack_frag6_high_thresh bytes of memory is allocated for this
+ purpose, the fragment handler will toss packets until
+ nf_conntrack_frag6_low_thresh is reached.
+
+nf_conntrack_frag6_low_thresh - INTEGER
+ default 196608
+
+ See nf_conntrack_frag6_low_thresh
+
+nf_conntrack_frag6_timeout - INTEGER (seconds)
+ default 60
+
+ Time to keep an IPv6 fragment in memory.
+
+nf_conntrack_generic_timeout - INTEGER (seconds)
+ default 600
+
+ Default for generic timeout. This refers to layer 4 unknown/unsupported
+ protocols.
+
+nf_conntrack_helper - BOOLEAN
+ 0 - disabled
+ not 0 - enabled (default)
+
+ Enable automatic conntrack helper assignment.
+
+nf_conntrack_icmp_timeout - INTEGER (seconds)
+ default 30
+
+ Default for ICMP timeout.
+
+nf_conntrack_icmpv6_timeout - INTEGER (seconds)
+ default 30
+
+ Default for ICMP6 timeout.
+
+nf_conntrack_log_invalid - INTEGER
+ 0 - disable (default)
+ 1 - log ICMP packets
+ 6 - log TCP packets
+ 17 - log UDP packets
+ 33 - log DCCP packets
+ 41 - log ICMPv6 packets
+ 136 - log UDPLITE packets
+ 255 - log packets of any protocol
+
+ Log invalid packets of a type specified by value.
+
+nf_conntrack_max - INTEGER
+ Size of connection tracking table. Default value is
+ nf_conntrack_buckets value * 4.
+
+nf_conntrack_tcp_be_liberal - BOOLEAN
+ 0 - disabled (default)
+ not 0 - enabled
+
+ Be conservative in what you do, be liberal in what you accept from others.
+ If it's non-zero, we mark only out of window RST segments as INVALID.
+
+nf_conntrack_tcp_loose - BOOLEAN
+ 0 - disabled
+ not 0 - enabled (default)
+
+ If it is set to zero, we disable picking up already established
+ connections.
+
+nf_conntrack_tcp_max_retrans - INTEGER
+ default 3
+
+ Maximum number of packets that can be retransmitted without
+ received an (acceptable) ACK from the destination. If this number
+ is reached, a shorter timer will be started.
+
+nf_conntrack_tcp_timeout_close - INTEGER (seconds)
+ default 10
+
+nf_conntrack_tcp_timeout_close_wait - INTEGER (seconds)
+ default 60
+
+nf_conntrack_tcp_timeout_established - INTEGER (seconds)
+ default 432000 (5 days)
+
+nf_conntrack_tcp_timeout_fin_wait - INTEGER (seconds)

+ default 300
+
+nf_conntrack_timestamp - BOOLEAN
+ 0 - disabled (default)
+ not 0 - enabled
+
+ Enable connection tracking flow timestamping.
+
+nf_conntrack_udp_timeout - INTEGER (seconds)
+ default 30
+
+nf_conntrack_udp_timeout_stream2 - INTEGER (seconds)
+ default 180
+
+ This extended timeout will be used in case there is an UDP stream
+ detected.
