2006-12-02[XFRM]: Fix aevent structuring to be more complete.Jamal Hadi Salim
aevents can not uniquely identify an SA. We break the ABI with this patch, but consensus is that since it is not yet utilized by any (known) application then it is fine (better do it now than later).

2006-12-02[NETFILTER]: Mark old IPv4-only connection tracking scheduled for removalPatrick McHardy

2006-12-02[NETFILTER]: Kill ip_queue from feature removal schedule.Patrick McHardy
We really can't remove ip_queue. Many users use this, there is no binary compatible interface and even the compat replacement for the originally statically linked library doesn't work. There is also no real necessity to remove the code, so the feature-removal-schedule entry should be removed instead. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>

2006-12-02[NET]: Supporting UDP-Lite (RFC 3828) in LinuxGerrit Renker
This is a revision of the previously submitted patch, which alters the way files are organized and compiled in the following manner: * UDP and UDP-Lite now use separate object files * source file dependencies resolved via header files net/ipv{4,6}/udp_impl.h * order of inclusion files in udp.c/udplite.c adapted accordingly [NET/IPv4]: Support for the UDP-Lite protocol (RFC 3828) This patch adds support for UDP-Lite to the IPv4 stack, provided as an extension to the existing UDPv4 code: * generic routines are all located in net/ipv4/udp.c * UDP-Lite specific routines are in net/ipv4/udplite.c * MIB/statistics support in /proc/net/snmp and /proc/net/udplite * shared API with extensions for partial checksum coverage [NET/IPv6]: Extension for UDP-Lite over IPv6 It extends the existing UDPv6 code base with support for UDP-Lite in the same manner as per UDPv4. In particular, * UDPv6 generic and shared code is in net/ipv6/udp.c * UDP-Litev6 specific extensions are in net/ipv6/udplite.c * MIB/statistics support in /proc/net/snmp6 and /proc/net/udplite6 * support for IPV6_ADDRFORM * aligned the coding style of protocol initialisation with af_inet6.c * made the error handling in udpv6_queue_rcv_skb consistent; to return `-1' on error on all error cases * consolidation of shared code [NET]: UDP-Lite Documentation and basic XFRM/Netfilter support The UDP-Lite patch further provides * API documentation for UDP-Lite * basic xfrm support * basic netfilter support for IPv4 and IPv6 (LOG target) Signed-off-by: Gerrit Renker <gerrit@erg.abdn.ac.uk> Signed-off-by: David S.

2006-12-02[DCCP]: Add sysctls to control retransmission behaviourGerrit Renker
This adds 3 sysctls which govern the retransmission behaviour of DCCP control packets (3way handshake, feature negotiation). It removes 4 FIXMEs from the code. The close resemblance of sysctl variables to their TCP analogues is emphasised not only by their name, but also by giving them the same initial values. This is useful since there is not much practical experience with DCCP yet. Furthermore, with regard to the previous patch, it is now possible to limit the number of keepalive-Responses by setting net.dccp.default.request_retries (also a bit like in TCP). Lastly, added documentation of all existing DCCP sysctls. Signed-off-by: Gerrit Renker <gerrit@erg.abdn.ac.uk> Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@mandriva.com>
2006-12-02[DCCP]: Support for partial checksums (RFC 4340, sec. 9.2)Gerrit Renker
This patch does the following: a) introduces variable-length checksums as specified in [RFC 4340, sec. 9.2] b) provides necessary socket options and documentation as to how to use them c) basic support and infrastructure for the Minimum Checksum Coverage feature [RFC 4340, sec. 9.2.1]: acceptability tests, user notification and user interface In addition, it (1) fixes two bugs in the DCCPv4 checksum computation: * pseudo-header used checksum_len instead of skb->len * incorrect checksum coverage calculation based on dccph_x (2) removes dccp_v4_verify_checksum() since it reduplicates code of the checksum computation; code calling this function is updated accordingly. (3) now uses skb_checksum(), which is safer than checksum_partial() if the sk_buff has is a non-linear buffer (has pages attached to it). (4) fixes an outstanding TODO item: * If P.CsCov is too large for the packet size, drop packet and return. The code has been tested with applications, the latest version of tcpdump now comes with support for partial DCCP checksums.

2006-12-02[PATCH] PHY: Add support for configuring the PHY connection interfaceAndy Fleming
Most PHYs connect to an ethernet controller over a GMII or MII interface. However, a growing number are connected over different interfaces, such as RGMII or SGMII. The ethernet driver will tell the PHY what type of connection it is by setting it manually, or passing it in through phy_connect (or phy_attach). Changes include: * Updates to documentation * Updates to PHY Lib consumers * Changes to PHY Lib to add interface support * Some minor changes to whitespace in phy.h * gianfar driver now detects interface and passes appropriate value to PHY Lib Signed-off-by: Andrew Fleming <afleming@freescale.com> Signed-off-by: Jeff Garzik <jeff@garzik.org>

2006-12-01usb: writing_usb_driver free urb cleanupMariusz Kozlowski
Allright. As Greg KH suggested I split this big patch into smaller ones to make the changes easier to review. Having no better idea how to split that I split it on a 'patch per file' basis. All those patches clean redundant 'if' before usb_unlink/free/kill_urb(): if (urb) usb_free_urb(urb); /* unlink / free / kill */ I decided not to touch bigger 'if's like if (urb) { usb_kill_urb(urb); usb_free_urb(urb); urb = NULL; } as that would be probably too intrusive. One of patches also fixes drivers/usb/misc/auerswald.c memleak I found when digging the code. All those patches are against 2.6.19-rc4.

2006-11-08[PATCH] sysctl: Undeprecate sys_sysctlEric W. Biederman
The basic issue is that despite have been deprecated and warned about as a very bad thing in the man pages since its inception there are a few real users of sys_sysctl. It was my assumption that because sysctl had been deprecated for all of 2.6 there would be no user space users by this point, so I initially gave sys_sysctl a very short deprecation period. Now that I know there are a few real users the only sane way to proceed with deprecation is to push the time limit out to a year or two work and work with distributions that have big testing pools like fedora core to find these last remaining users. Which means that the sys_sysctl interface needs to be maintained in the meantime. Since I have provided a technical measure that allows us to add new sysctl entries without reserving more binary numbers I believe that is enough to fix the sys_sysctl binary interface maintenance problems, because there is no longer a need to change the binary interface at all. Since the sys_sysctl implementation needs to stay around for a while and the worst of the maintenance issues that caused us to occasionally break the ABI have been addressed I don't see any advantage in continuing with the removal of sys_sysctl. So instead of merely increasing the deprecation period this patch removes the deprecation of sys_sysctl and modifies the kernel to compile the code in by default. With committing to maintain sys_sysctl we get all of the advantages of a fast interface for anything that needs it. Currently sys_sysctl is about 5x faster than /proc/sys, for the same string data.
