      fib_trie: no need to delay vfree() · 00203563
      Al Viro authored
      Now that vfree() can be called from interrupt contexts, there's no
      need to play games with schedule_work() to escape calling vfree()
      from RCU callbacks.

      net: frag, fix race conditions in LRU list maintenance · b56141ab
      Konstantin Khlebnikov authored
      This patch fixes race between inet_frag_lru_move() and inet_frag_lru_add()
      which was introduced in commit 3ef0eb0d
      ("net: frag, move LRU list maintenance outside of rwlock")
      
      One cpu already added new fragment queue into hash but not into LRU.
      Other cpu found it in hash and tries to move it to the end of LRU.
      This leads to NULL pointer dereference inside of list_move_tail().
      
      Another possible race condition is between inet_frag_lru_move() and
      inet_frag_lru_del(): move can happens after deletion.
      
      This patch initializes LRU list head before adding fragment into hash and
      inet_frag_lru_move() doesn't touches it if it's empty.
      
      I saw this kernel oops two times in a couple of days.

      tcp: do not expire TCP fastopen cookies · efeaa555
      Eric Dumazet authored
      TCP metric cache expires entries after one hour.
      
      This probably make sense for TCP RTT/RTTVAR/CWND, but not
      for TCP fastopen cookies.
      
      Its better to try previous cookie. If it appears to be obsolete,
      server will send us new cookie anyway.

      net/eth/ibmveth: Fixup retrieval of MAC address · 13f85203
      Benjamin Herrenschmidt authored
      Some ancient pHyp versions used to create a 8 bytes local-mac-address
      property in the device-tree instead of a 6 bytes one for veth.
      
      The Linux driver code to deal with that is an insane hack which also
      happens to break with some choices of MAC addresses in qemu by testing
      for a bit in the address rather than just looking at the size of the
      property.
      
      Sanitize this by doing the latter instead.

      Programs using virtio headers outside of kernel will no longer

      Pull single_open() leak fixes from Al Viro:
       "A bunch of fixes for a moderately common class of bugs: file with
        single_open() done by its ->open() and seq_release as its ->release().
      
        That leaks; fortunately, it's not _too_ common (either people manage
        to RTFM that says "When using single_open(), the programmer should use
        single_release() instead of seq_release() in the file_operations
        structure to avoid a memory leak", or they just copy a correct
        instance), but grepping through the tree has caught quite a pile.
      
        All of that is, AFAICS, -stable fodder, for as far as the patches
        apply.  I tried to carve it up into reasonably-sized pieces (more or
        less "comes from the same tree")"

      Merge branch 'ipc-cleanups' · 802d0db8
      Linus Torvalds authored
      Merge ipc fixes and cleanups from my IPC branch.
      
      The ipc locking has always been pretty ugly, and the scalability fixes
      to some degree made it even less readable.  We had two cases of double
      unlocks in error paths due to this (one rcu read unlock, one semaphore
      unlock), and this fixes the bugs I found while trying to clean things up
      a bit so that we are less likely to have more.
      
      * ipc-cleanups:
        ipc: simplify rcu_read_lock() in semctl_nolock()
        ipc: simplify semtimedop/semctl_main() common error path handling
        ipc: move sem_obtain_lock() rcu locking into the only caller
        ipc: fix double sem unlock in semctl error path
        ipc: move the rcu_read_lock() from sem_lock_and_putref() into callers
        ipc: sem_putref() does not need the semaphore lock any more
        ipc: move rcu_read_unlock() out of sem_unlock() and into callers
