2011-02-22bridge: Use IPv6 link-local address for multicast listener queriesLinus Lüssing
Currently the bridge multicast snooping feature periodically issues IPv6 general multicast listener queries to sense the absence of a listener. For this, it uses :: as its source address - however RFC 2710 requires: "To be valid, the Query message MUST come from a link-local IPv6 Source Address". Current Linux kernel versions seem to follow this requirement and ignore our bogus MLD queries. With this commit a link local address from the bridge interface is being used to issue the MLD query, resulting in other Linux devices which are multicast listeners in the network to respond with a MLD response (which was not the case before).

2011-02-22bridge: Fix MLD queries' ethernet source addressLinus Lüssing
Map the IPv6 header's destination multicast address to an ethernet source address instead of the MLD queries multicast address. For instance for a general MLD query (multicast address in the MLD query set to ::), this would wrongly be mapped to 33:33:00:00:00:00, although an MLD queries destination MAC should always be 33:33:00:00:00:01 which matches the IPv6 header's multicast destination ff02::1.

2011-02-22bridge: Allow mcast snooping for transient link local addresses tooLinus Lüssing
Currently the multicast bridge snooping support is not active for link local multicast. I assume this has been done to leave important multicast data untouched, like IPv6 Neighborhood Discovery. In larger, bridged, local networks it could however be desirable to optimize for instance local multicast audio/video streaming too. With the transient flag in IPv6 multicast addresses we have an easy way to optimize such multimedia traffic without tempering with the high priority multicast data from well-known addresses. This patch alters the multicast bridge snooping for IPv6, to take effect for transient multicast addresses instead of non-link-local addresses. Signed-off-by: Linus Lüssing <> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <>

2011-02-22bridge: Fix IPv6 multicast snooping by correcting offset in MLDv2 reportLinus Lüssing
We actually want a pointer to the grec_nsrcr and not the following field. Otherwise we can get very high values for *nsrcs as the first two bytes of the IPv6 multicast address are being used instead, leading to a failing pskb_may_pull() which results in MLDv2 reports not being parsed.

2011-02-22bridge: Fix IPv6 multicast snooping by storing correct protocol typeLinus Lüssing
The protocol type for IPv6 entries in the hash table for multicast bridge snooping is falsely set to ETH_P_IP, marking it as an IPv4 address, instead of setting it to ETH_P_IPV6, which results in negative look-ups in the hash table later.

2011-02-20net: Fix more stale on-stack list_head objects.Eric W. Biederman
From: Eric W. Biederman <> In the beginning with batching unreg_list was a list that was used only once in the lifetime of a network device (I think). Now we have calls using the unreg_list that can happen multiple times in the life of a network device like dev_deactivate and dev_close that are also using the unreg_list. In addition in unregister_netdevice_queue we also do a list_move because for devices like veth pairs it is possible that unregister_netdevice_queue will be called multiple times.

Assigning a socket in timewait state to skb->sk can trigger kernel oops, e.g. in nfnetlink_log, which does: if (skb->sk) { read_lock_bh(&skb->sk->sk_callback_lock); if (skb->sk->sk_socket && skb->sk->sk_socket->file) ... in the timewait case, accessing sk->sk_callback_lock and sk->sk_socket is invalid. Either all of these spots will need to add a test for sk->sk_state != TCP_TIME_WAIT, or xt_TPROXY must not assign a timewait socket to skb->sk. This does the latter. If a TW socket is found, assign the tproxy nfmark, but skip the skb->sk assignment, thus mimicking behaviour of a '-m socket .. -j MARK/ACCEPT' re-routing rule. The 'SYN to TW socket' case is left unchanged -- we try to redirect to the listener socket.

2011-02-14arp_notify: unconditionally send gratuitous ARP for NETDEV_NOTIFY_PEERS.Ian Campbell
NETDEV_NOTIFY_PEER is an explicit request by the driver to send a link notification while NETDEV_UP/NETDEV_CHANGEADDR generate link notifications as a sort of side effect. In the later cases the sysctl option is present because link notification events can have undesired effects e.g. if the link is flapping. I don't think this applies in the case of an explicit request from a driver. This patch makes NETDEV_NOTIFY_PEER unconditional, if preferred we could add a new sysctl for this case which defaults to on. This change causes Xen post-migration ARP notifications (which cause switches to relearn their MAC tables etc) to be sent by default. Signed-off-by: Ian Campbell <> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <>

Unfortunately the operation that adds the mp->mglist node to the list neglected to check whether it has already been added. This leads to list corruption in the form of nodes pointing to itself. Normally this would be quite obvious as it would cause an infinite loop when walking the list. However, as this list is never actually walked (which means that we don't really need it, I'll get rid of it in a subsequent patch), this instead is hidden until we perform a delete operation on the affected nodes. As the same node may now be pointed to by more than one node, the delete operations can then cause modification of freed memory. This was observed in practice to cause corruption in 512-byte slabs, most commonly leading to crashes in jbd2. Thanks to Josef Bacik for pointing me in the right direction.

2011-02-09netfilter: nf_conntrack: set conntrack templates again if we return NF_REPEATPablo Neira Ayuso
The TCP tracking code has a special case that allows to return NF_REPEAT if we receive a new SYN packet while in TIME_WAIT state. In this situation, the TCP tracking code destroys the existing conntrack to start a new clean session. [DESTROY] tcp 6 src= dst= sport=38925 dport=8000 src= dst= sport=8000 dport=38925 [ASSURED] [NEW] tcp 6 120 SYN_SENT src= dst= sport=38925 dport=8000 [UNREPLIED] src= dst= sport=8000 dport=38925 However, this is a problem for the iptables' CT target event filtering which will not work in this case since the conntrack template will not be there for the new session. To fix this, we reassign the conntrack template to the packet if we return NF_REPEAT. Signed-off-by: Pablo Neira Ayuso <> Signed-off-by: Patrick McHardy <>
2011-02-08net: Fix lockdep regression caused by initializing netdev queues too early.David S. Miller
In commit aa9421041128abb4d269ee1dc502ff65fb3b7d69 ("net: init ingress queue") we moved the allocation and lock initialization of the queues into alloc_netdev_mq() since register_netdevice() is way too late. The problem is that dev->type is not setup until the setup() callback is invoked by alloc_netdev_mq(), and the dev->type is what determines the lockdep class to use for the locks in the queues. Fix this by doing the queue allocation after the setup() callback runs. This is safe because the setup() callback is not allowed to make any state changes that need to be undone on error (memory allocations, etc.). It may, however, make state changes that are undone by free_netdev() (such as netif_napi_add(), which is done by the ipoib driver's setup routine). The previous code also leaked a reference to the &init_net namespace object on RX/TX queue allocation failures. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <>
2011-02-08net/caif: Fix dangling list pointer in freed object on error.David S. Miller
rtnl_link_ops->setup(), and the "setup" callback passed to alloc_netdev*(), cannot make state changes which need to be undone on failure. There is no cleanup mechanism available at this point. So we have to add the caif private instance to the global list once we are sure that register_netdev() has succedded in ->newlink(). Otherwise, if register_netdev() fails, the caller will invoke free_netdev() and we will have a reference to freed up memory on the chnl_net_list. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <>

2011-02-07x25: possible skb leak on bad facilitiesandrew hendry
Originally x25_parse_facilities returned -1 for an error 0 meaning 0 length facilities >0 the length of the facilities parsed. 5ef41308f94dc ("x25: Prevent crashing when parsing bad X.25 facilities") introduced more error checking in x25_parse_facilities however used 0 to indicate bad parsing a6331d6f9a429 ("memory corruption in X.25 facilities parsing") followed this further for DTE facilities, again using 0 for bad parsing. The meaning of 0 got confused in the callers. If the facilities are messed up we can't determine where the data starts. So patch makes all parsing errors return -1 and ensures callers close and don't use the skb further. Reported-by: Andy Whitcroft <> Signed-off-by: Andrew Hendry <> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <>

Using skb_header_cloned to check if it's safe to write to the skb is not enough - mac80211 also touches the tailroom of the skb. Initially this check was only used to increase a counter, however this commit changed the code to also skip skb data reallocation if no extra head/tailroom was needed: commit 4cd06a344db752f513437138953af191cbe9a691 mac80211: skip unnecessary pskb_expand_head calls It added a regression at least with iwl3945, which is fixed by this patch.
