      mac80211: add WMM admission control support · 02219b3a
      Johannes Berg authored
      Use the currently existing APIs between mac80211 and the low
      level driver to implement WMM admission control.
      The low level driver needs to report the media time used by
      each transmitted packet in ieee80211_tx_status. Based on that
      information, mac80211 will modify the QoS parameters of the
      admission controlled Access Category when the limit is
      reached. Once the original QoS parameters can be restored,
      mac80211 will do so.
      One issue with this approach is that management frames will
      also erroneously be downgraded, but the upside is that the
      implementation is simple. In the future, it can be extended
      to driver- or device-based implementations that are better.

      mac80211: sanity check CW_min/CW_max towards driver · f409079b
      Johannes Berg authored
      There's no reason to ever set invalid CW_min/CW_max to the
      drivers, we should catch it in higher layers. However, the
      consequences of setting it wrong can be quite severe, so
      double-check at a low level and error out for invalid data.

      cfg80211: make WMM TSPEC support flag an nl80211 feature flag · 723e73ac
      Johannes Berg authored
      During the review of the corresponding wpa_supplicant patches we
      noticed that the only way for it to detect that this functionality
      is supported currently is to check for the command support. This
      can be misleading though, as the command was also designed to, in
      the future, support pure 802.11 TSPECs.
      Expose the WMM-TSPEC feature flag to nl80211 so later we can also
      expose an 802.11-TSPEC feature flag (if needed) to differentiate
      the two cases.
      Note: this change isn't needed in 3.18 as there's no driver there
      yet that supports the functionality at all.

      mac80211: fix typo in starting baserate for rts_cts_rate_idx · c7abf25a
      Karl Beldan authored
      It affects non-(V)HT rates and can lead to selecting an rts_cts rate
      that is not a basic rate or way superior to the reference rate (ATM
      rates[0] used for the 1st attempt of the protected frame data).
      E.g, assuming drivers register growing (bitrate) sorted tables of
      ieee80211_rate-s, having :
      - rates[0].idx == d'2 and basic_rates == b'10100
      will select rts_cts idx b'10011 & ~d'(BIT(2)-1), i.e. 1, likewise
      - rates[0].idx == d'2 and basic_rates == b'10001
      will select rts_cts idx b'10000
      The first is not a basic rate and the second is > rates[0].
      Also, wrt severity of the addressed misbehavior, ATM we only have one
      rts_cts_rate_idx rather than one per rate table entry, so this idx might
      still point to bitrates > rates[1..MAX_RATES].
      Fixes: 5253ffb8

      Pull networking updates from David Miller:
       "Most notable changes in here:
         1) By far the biggest accomplishment, thanks to a large range of
            contributors, is the addition of multi-send for transmit.  This is
            the result of discussions back in Chicago, and the hard work of
            several individuals.
            Now, when the ->ndo_start_xmit() method of a driver sees
            skb->xmit_more as true, it can choose to defer the doorbell
            telling the driver to start processing the new TX queue entires.
            skb->xmit_more means that the generic networking is guaranteed to
            call the driver immediately with another SKB to send.
            There is logic added to the qdisc layer to dequeue multiple
            packets at a time, and the handling mis-predicted offloads in
            software is now done with no locks held.
            Finally, pktgen is extended to have a "burst" parameter that can
            be used to test a multi-send implementation.
            Several drivers have xmit_more support: i40e, igb, ixgbe, mlx4,
            Adding support is almost trivial, so export more drivers to
            support this optimization soon.
            I want to thank, in no particular or implied order, Jesper
            Dangaard Brouer, Eric Dumazet, Alexander Duyck, Tom Herbert, Jamal
            Hadi Salim, John Fastabend, Florian Westphal, Daniel Borkmann,
            David Tat, Hannes Frederic Sowa, and Rusty Russell.
         2) PTP and timestamping support in bnx2x, from Michal Kalderon.
         3) Allow adjusting the rx_copybreak threshold for a driver via
            ethtool, and add rx_copybreak support to enic driver.  From
            Govindarajulu Varadarajan.
         4) Significant enhancements to the generic PHY layer and the bcm7xxx
            driver in particular (EEE support, auto power down, etc.) from
            Florian Fainelli.
         5) Allow raw buffers to be used for flow dissection, allowing drivers
            to determine the optimal "linear pull" size for devices that DMA
            into pools of pages.  The objective is to get exactly the
            necessary amount of headers into the linear SKB area pre-pulled,
            but no more.  The new interface drivers use is eth_get_headlen().
            From WANG Cong, with driver conversions (several had their own
            by-hand duplicated implementations) by Alexander Duyck and Eric
         6) Support checksumming more smoothly and efficiently for
            encapsulations, and add "foo over UDP" facility.  From Tom
         7) Add Broadcom SF2 switch driver to DSA layer, from Florian
         8) eBPF now can load programs via a system call and has an extensive
            testsuite.  Alexei Starovoitov and Daniel Borkmann.
         9) Major overhaul of the packet scheduler to use RCU in several major
            areas such as the classifiers and rate estimators.  From John
        10) Add driver for Intel FM10000 Ethernet Switch, from Alexander
        11) Rearrange TCP_SKB_CB() to reduce cache line misses, from Eric
        12) Add Datacenter TCP congestion control algorithm support, From
            Florian Westphal.
        13) Reorganize sk_buff so that __copy_skb_header() is significantly
            faster.  From Eric Dumazet"
