2012-05-10Revert "net: maintain namespace isolation between vlan and real device"David S. Miller
This reverts commit 8a83a00b0735190384a348156837918271034144. It causes regressions for S390 devices, because it does an unconditional DST drop on SKBs for vlans and the QETH device needs the neighbour entry hung off the DST for certain things on transmit. Arnd can't remember exactly why he even needed this change. Conflicts: drivers/net/macvlan.c net/8021q/vlan_dev.c net/core/dev.c Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <>

2011-11-04macvlan: receive multicast with local addressstephen hemminger
When implementing VRRP v2 using macvlan several problems were discovered. VRRP is weird in that all routers participating in a redundant group use the same virtual MAC address. Macvlan is a natural driver to use for this but it doesn't work. The problem is that packets with a macvlan device's source address are not received. The problem is actually a regression that date back almost 2 years now. The original problems started with: commit 618e1b7482f7a8a4c6c6e8ccbe140e4c331df4e9 Author: Arnd Bergmann <> Date: Thu Nov 26 06:07:10 2009 +0000 macvlan: implement bridge, VEPA and private mode This patches restores the original 2.6.32 behavior.

2011-09-15net: consolidate and fix ethtool_ops->get_settings callingJiri Pirko
This patch does several things: - introduces __ethtool_get_settings which is called from ethtool code and from drivers as well. Put ASSERT_RTNL there. - dev_ethtool_get_settings() is replaced by __ethtool_get_settings() - changes calling in drivers so rtnl locking is respected. In iboe_get_rate was previously ->get_settings() called unlocked. This fixes it. Also prb_calc_retire_blk_tmo() in af_packet.c had the same problem. Also fixed by calling __dev_get_by_index() instead of dev_get_by_index() and holding rtnl_lock for both calls. - introduces rtnl_lock in bnx2fc_vport_create() and fcoe_vport_create() so bnx2fc_if_create() and fcoe_if_create() are called locked as they are from other places. - use __ethtool_get_settings() in bonding code Signed-off-by: Jiri Pirko <> v2->v3: -removed dev_ethtool_get_settings() -added ASSERT_RTNL into __ethtool_get_settings() -prb_calc_retire_blk_tmo - use __dev_get_by_index() and lock around it and __ethtool_get_settings() call v1->v2: add missing export_symbol Reviewed-by: Ben Hutchings <> [except FCoE bits] Acked-by: Ralf Baechle <> Signed-off-by: David S.

2011-03-21macvlan: Fix use after free of struct macvlan_port.Eric W. Biederman
When the macvlan driver was extended to call unregisgter_netdevice_queue in 23289a37e2b127dfc4de1313fba15bb4c9f0cd5b, a use after free of struct macvlan_port was introduced. The code in dellink relied on unregister_netdevice actually unregistering the net device so it would be safe to free macvlan_port. Since unregister_netdevice_queue can just queue up the unregister instead of performing the unregiser immediately we free the macvlan_port too soon and then the code in macvlan_stop removes the macaddress for the set of macaddress to listen for and uses memory that has already been freed. To fix this add a reference count to track when it is safe to free the macvlan_port and move the call of macvlan_port_destroy into macvlan_uninit which is guaranteed to be called after the final macvlan_port_close.

2011-03-14macvlan : fix checksums error when we are in bridge modeDaniel Lezcano
When the lower device has offloading capabilities, the packets checksums are not computed. That leads to have any macvlan port in bridge mode to not work because the packets are dropped due to a bad checksum. If the macvlan is in bridge mode, the packet is forwarded to another macvlan port and reach the network stack where it looks for a checksum but this one was not computed due to the offloading of the lower device. In this case, we have to set the packet with CHECKSUM_UNNECESSARY when it is forwarded to a bridged port and restore the previous value of ip_summed when the packet goes to the lowerdev.

2010-11-22macvlan: Introduce 'passthru' mode to takeover the underlying deviceSridhar Samudrala
With the current default 'vepa' mode, a KVM guest using virtio with macvtap backend has the following limitations. - cannot change/add a mac address on the guest virtio-net - cannot create a vlan device on the guest virtio-net - cannot enable promiscuous mode on guest virtio-net To address these limitations, this patch introduces a new mode called 'passthru' when creating a macvlan device which allows takeover of the underlying device and passing it to a guest using virtio with macvtap backend. Only one macvlan device is allowed in passthru mode and it inherits the mac address from the underlying device and sets it in promiscuous mode to receive and forward all the packets.

2010-07-22macvtap: Limit packet queue lengthHerbert Xu
Mark Wagner reported OOM symptoms when sending UDP traffic over a macvtap link to a kvm receiver. This appears to be caused by the fact that macvtap packet queues are unlimited in length. This means that if the receiver can't keep up with the rate of flow, then we will hit OOM. Of course it gets worse if the OOM killer then decides to kill the receiver. This patch imposes a cap on the packet queue length, in the same way as the tuntap driver, using the device TX queue length. Please note that macvtap currently has no way of giving congestion notification, that means the software device TX queue cannot be used and packets will always be dropped once the macvtap driver queue fills up. This shouldn't be a great problem for the scenario where macvtap is used to feed a kvm receiver, as the traffic is most likely external in origin so congestion notification can't be applied anyway. Of course, if anybody decides to complain about guest-to-guest UDP packet loss down the track, then we may have to revisit this. Incidentally, this patch also fixes a real memory leak when macvtap_get_queue fails. Chris Wright noticed that for this patch to work, we need a non-zero TX queue length. This patch includes his work to change the default macvtap TX queue length to 500.

2010-07-09net: Get rid of rtnl_link_stats64 / net_device_stats unionBen Hutchings
In commit be1f3c2c027cc5ad735df6a45a542ed1db7ec48b "net: Enable 64-bit net device statistics on 32-bit architectures" I redefined struct net_device_stats so that it could be used in a union with struct rtnl_link_stats64, avoiding the need for explicit copying or conversion between the two. However, this is unsafe because there is no locking required and no lock consistently held around calls to dev_get_stats() and use of the statistics structure it returns. In commit 28172739f0a276eb8d6ca917b3974c2edb036da3 "net: fix 64 bit counters on 32 bit arches" Eric Dumazet dealt with that problem by requiring callers of dev_get_stats() to provide storage for the result. This means that the net_device::stats64 field and the padding in struct net_device_stats are now redundant, so remove them. Update the comment on net_device_ops::ndo_get_stats64 to reflect its new usage. Change dev_txq_stats_fold() to use struct rtnl_link_stats64, since that is what all its callers are really using and it is no longer going to be compatible with struct net_device_stats. Eric Dumazet suggested the separate function for the structure conversion. Signed-off-by: Ben Hutchings <> Acked-by: Eric Dumazet <> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <>
2010-07-07net: fix 64 bit counters on 32 bit archesEric Dumazet
There is a small possibility that a reader gets incorrect values on 32 bit arches. SNMP applications could catch incorrect counters when a 32bit high part is changed by another stats consumer/provider. One way to solve this is to add a rtnl_link_stats64 param to all ndo_get_stats64() methods, and also add such a parameter to dev_get_stats(). Rule is that we are not allowed to use dev->stats64 as a temporary storage for 64bit stats, but a caller provided area (usually on stack) Old drivers (only providing get_stats() method) need no changes.

2009-11-26macvlan: implement bridge, VEPA and private modeArnd Bergmann
This allows each macvlan slave device to be in one of three modes, depending on the use case: MACVLAN_PRIVATE: The device never communicates with any other device on the same upper_dev. This even includes frames coming back from a reflective relay, where supported by the adjacent bridge. MACVLAN_VEPA: The new Virtual Ethernet Port Aggregator (VEPA) mode, we assume that the adjacent bridge returns all frames where both source and destination are local to the macvlan port, i.e. the bridge is set up as a reflective relay. Broadcast frames coming in from the upper_dev get flooded to all macvlan interfaces in VEPA mode. We never deliver any frames locally. MACVLAN_BRIDGE: We provide the behavior of a simple bridge between different macvlan interfaces on the same port. Frames from one interface to another one get delivered directly and are not sent out externally. Broadcast frames get flooded to all other bridge ports and to the external interface, but when they come back from a reflective relay, we don't deliver them again. Since we know all the MAC addresses, the macvlan bridge mode does not require learning or STP like the bridge module does.
