2013-02-10VSOCK: Introduce VM SocketsAndy King
VM Sockets allows communication between virtual machines and the hypervisor. User level applications both in a virtual machine and on the host can use the VM Sockets API, which facilitates fast and efficient communication between guest virtual machines and their host. A socket address family, designed to be compatible with UDP and TCP at the interface level, is provided. Today, VM Sockets is used by various VMware Tools components inside the guest for zero-config, network-less access to VMware host services. In addition to this, VMware's users are using VM Sockets for various applications, where network access of the virtual machine is restricted or non-existent. Examples of this are VMs communicating with device proxies for proprietary hardware running as host applications and automated testing of applications running within virtual machines. The VMware VM Sockets are similar to other socket types, like Berkeley UNIX socket interface. The VM Sockets module supports both connection-oriented stream sockets like TCP, and connectionless datagram sockets like UDP. The VM Sockets protocol family is defined as "AF_VSOCK" and the socket operations split for SOCK_DGRAM and SOCK_STREAM. For additional information about the use of VM Sockets, please refer to the VM Sockets Programming Guide available at: https://www.vmware.com/support/developer/vmci-sdk/ Signed-off-by: George Zhang <georgezhang@vmware.com> Signed-off-by: Dmitry Torokhov <dtor@vmware.com> Signed-off-by: Andy king <acking@vmware.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

2013-01-31wanrouter: completely decouple obsolete code from kernel.Paul Gortmaker
The original suggestion to delete wanrouter started earlier with the mainline commit f0d1b3c2bcc5de8a17af5f2274f7fcde8292b5fc ("net/wanrouter: Deprecate and schedule for removal") in May 2012. More importantly, Dan Carpenter found[1] that the driver had a fundamental breakage introduced back in 2008, with commit 7be6065b39c3 ("netdevice wanrouter: Convert directly reference of netdev->priv"). So we know with certainty that the code hasn't been used by anyone willing to at least take the effort to send an e-mail report of breakage for at least 4 years. This commit does a decouple of the wanrouter subsystem, by going after the Makefile/Kconfig and similar files, so that these mainline files that we are keeping do not have the big wanrouter file/driver deletion commit tied into their history. Once this commit is in place, we then can remove the obsolete cyclomx drivers and similar that have a dependency on CONFIG_WAN_ROUTER_DRIVERS.

2011-12-03net: Add Open vSwitch kernel components.Jesse Gross
Open vSwitch is a multilayer Ethernet switch targeted at virtualized environments. In addition to supporting a variety of features expected in a traditional hardware switch, it enables fine-grained programmatic extension and flow-based control of the network. This control is useful in a wide variety of applications but is particularly important in multi-server virtualization deployments, which are often characterized by highly dynamic endpoints and the need to maintain logical abstractions for multiple tenants. The Open vSwitch datapath provides an in-kernel fast path for packet forwarding. It is complemented by a userspace daemon, ovs-vswitchd, which is able to accept configuration from a variety of sources and translate it into packet processing rules. See http://openvswitch.org for more information and userspace utilities. Signed-off-by: Jesse Gross <jesse@nicira.com>

2010-10-20ceph: factor out libceph from Ceph file systemYehuda Sadeh
This factors out protocol and low-level storage parts of ceph into a separate libceph module living in net/ceph and include/linux/ceph. This is mostly a matter of moving files around. However, a few key pieces of the interface change as well: - ceph_client becomes ceph_fs_client and ceph_client, where the latter captures the mon and osd clients, and the fs_client gets the mds client and file system specific pieces. - Mount option parsing and debugfs setup is correspondingly broken into two pieces. - The mon client gets a generic handler callback for otherwise unknown messages (mds map, in this case). - The basic supported/required feature bits can be expanded (and are by ceph_fs_client). No functional change, aside from some subtle error handling cases that got cleaned up in the refactoring process. Signed-off-by: Sage Weil <sage@newdream.net>

2010-08-05DNS: Separate out CIFS DNS Resolver codeWang Lei
Separate out the DNS resolver key type from the CIFS filesystem into its own module so that it can be made available for general use, including the AFS filesystem module. This facility makes it possible for the kernel to upcall to userspace to have it issue DNS requests, package up the replies and present them to the kernel in a useful form. The kernel is then able to cache the DNS replies as keys can be retained in keyrings. Resolver keys are of type "dns_resolver" and have a case-insensitive description that is of the form "[<type>:]<domain_name>". The optional <type> indicates the particular DNS lookup and packaging that's required. The <domain_name> is the query to be made. If <type> isn't given, a basic hostname to IP address lookup is made, and the result is stored in the key in the form of a printable string consisting of a comma-separated list of IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. This key type is supported by userspace helpers driven from /sbin/request-key and configured through /etc/request-key.conf. The cifs.upcall utility is invoked for UNC path server name to IP address resolution. The CIFS functionality is encapsulated by the dns_resolve_unc_to_ip() function, which is used to resolve a UNC path to an IP address for CIFS filesystem. This part remains in the CIFS module for now.

In L2TPv3, protocols other than PPP can be carried, so this split creates a common L2TP core that will handle the common L2TP bits which protocol support modules such as PPP will use. Note that the existing pppol2tp module is split into l2tp_core and l2tp_ppp by this change. There are no feature changes here.

2009-07-15net/compat/wext: send different messages to compat tasksJohannes Berg
Wireless extensions have the unfortunate problem that events are multicast netlink messages, and are not independent of pointer size. Thus, currently 32-bit tasks on 64-bit platforms cannot properly receive events and fail with all kinds of strange problems, for instance wpa_supplicant never notices disassociations, due to the way the 64-bit event looks (to a 32-bit process), the fact that the address is all zeroes is lost, it thinks instead it is 00:00:00:00:01:00. The same problem existed with the ioctls, until David Miller fixed those some time ago in an heroic effort. A different problem caused by this is that we cannot send the ASSOCREQIE/ASSOCRESPIE events because sending them causes a 32-bit wpa_supplicant on a 64-bit system to overwrite its internal information, which is worse than it not getting the information at all -- so we currently resort to sending a custom string event that it then parses. This, however, has a severe size limitation we are frequently hitting with modern access points; this limitation would can be lifted after this patch by sending the correct binary, not custom, event. A similar problem apparently happens for some other netlink users on x86_64 with 32-bit tasks due to the alignment for 64-bit quantities. In order to fix these problems, I have implemented a way to send compat messages to tasks. When sending an event, we send the non-compat event data together with a compat event data in skb_shinfo(main_skb)->frag_list. Then, when the event is read from the socket, the netlink code makes sure to pass out only the skb that is compatible with the task. This approach was suggested by David Miller, my original approach required always sending two skbs but that had various small problems. To determine whether compat is needed or not, I have used the MSG_CMSG_COMPAT flag, and adjusted the call path for recv and recvfrom to include it, even if those calls do not have a cmsg parameter. I have not solved one small part of the problem, and I don't think it is necessary to: if a 32-bit application uses read() rather than any form of recvmsg() it will still get the wrong (64-bit) event. However, neither do applications actually do this, nor would it be a regression. Signed-off-by: Johannes Berg <johannes@sipsolutions.net> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>

Initial implementation was done by Maxim Gorbachyov, Maxim Osipov and Pavel Smolensky as a research project at Siemens AG. Later the stack was heavily reworked to better suit the linux networking model, and is now maitained as an open project partially sponsored by Siemens.

Now that most network device drivers in (all but one in x86_64 allmodconfig) support net_device_ops. Expose it as a configuration parameter. Still need to address even older 32 bit drivers, and other arch before compatiablity can be scheduled for removal in some future release.

2008-11-20ixgbe: this patch adds support for DCB to the kernel and ixgbe driverAlexander Duyck
This adds support for Data Center Bridging (DCB) features in the ixgbe driver and adds an rtnetlink interface for configuring DCB to the kernel. The DCB feature support included are Priority Grouping (PG) - which allows bandwidth guarantees to be allocated to groups to traffic based on the 802.1q priority, and Priority Based Flow Control (PFC) - which introduces a new MAC control PAUSE frame which works at granularity of the 802.1p priority instead of the link (IEEE 802.3x).

2008-11-19netdev: network device operations infrastructureStephen Hemminger
This patch changes the network device internal API to move adminstrative operations out of the network device structure and into a separate structure. This patch involves some hackery to maintain compatablity between the new and old model, so all 300+ drivers don't have to be changed at once. For drivers that aren't converted yet, the netdevice_ops virt function list still resides in the net_device structure. For old protocols, the new net_device_ops are copied out to the old net_device pointers. After the transistion is completed the nag message can be changed to an WARN_ON, and the compatiablity code can be made configurable. Some function pointers aren't moved: * destructor can't be in net_device_ops because it may need to be referenced after the module is unloaded. * neighbor setup is manipulated in a couple of places that need special consideration * hard_start_xmit is in the fast path for transmit.

2008-10-27netns: Coexist with the sysfs limitations v2Eric W. Biederman
To make testing of the network namespace simpler allow the network namespace code and the sysfs code to be compiled and run at the same time. To do this only virtual devices are allowed in the additional network namespaces and those virtual devices are not placed in the kobject tree. Since virtual devices don't actually do anything interesting hardware wise that needs device management there should be no loss in keeping them out of the kobject tree and by implication sysfs. The gain in ease of testing and code coverage should be significant. Changelog: v2: As pointed out by Benjamin Thery it only makes sense to call device_rename in the initial network namespace for now. Signed-off-by: Eric W.

2008-10-08net: Distributed Switch Architecture protocol supportLennert Buytenhek
Distributed Switch Architecture is a protocol for managing hardware switch chips. It consists of a set of MII management registers and commands to configure the switch, and an ethernet header format to signal which of the ports of the switch a packet was received from or is intended to be sent to. The switches that this driver supports are typically embedded in access points and routers, and a typical setup with a DSA switch looks something like this: +-----------+ +-----------+ | | RGMII | | | +-------+ +------ 1000baseT MDI ("WAN") | | | 6-port +------ 1000baseT MDI ("LAN1") | CPU | | ethernet +------ 1000baseT MDI ("LAN2") | |MIImgmt| switch +------ 1000baseT MDI ("LAN3") | +-------+ w/5 PHYs +------ 1000baseT MDI ("LAN4") | | | | +-----------+ +-----------+ The switch driver presents each port on the switch as a separate network interface to Linux, polls the switch to maintain software link state of those ports, forwards MII management interface accesses to those network interfaces (e.g. as done by ethtool) to the switch, and exposes the switch's hardware statistics counters via the appropriate Linux kernel interfaces. This initial patch supports the MII management interface register layout of the Marvell 88E6123, 88E6161 and 88E6165 switch chips, and supports the "Ethertype DSA" packet tagging format. (There is no officially registered ethertype for the Ethertype DSA packet format, so we just grab a random one. The ethertype to use is programmed into the switch, and the switch driver uses the value of ETH_P_EDSA for this, so this define can be changed at any time in the future if the one we chose is allocated to another protocol or if Ethertype DSA gets its own officially registered ethertype, and everything will continue to work.)
