      [VLAN/BRIDGE]: Fix "skb_pull_rcsum - Fatal exception in interrupt" · e7c243c9
      Evgeniy Polyakov authored
      
      
      I tried to preserve bridging code as it was before, but logic is quite
      strange - I think we should free skb on error, since it is already
      unshared and thus will just leak.
      
      Herbert Xu states:
      
      > +	if ((skb = skb_share_check(skb, GFP_ATOMIC)) == NULL)
      > +		goto out;
      
      If this happens it'll be a double-free on skb since we'll
      return NF_DROP which makes the caller free it too.
      
      We could return NF_STOLEN to prevent that but I'm not sure
      whether that's correct netfilter semantics.  Patrick, could
      you please make a call on this?
      
      Patrick McHardy states:
      
      NF_STOLEN should work fine here.

      [NET]: ethtool ops are the only way · 61a44b9c
      Matthew Wilcox authored
      
      
      During the transition to the ethtool_ops way of doing things, we supported
      calling the device's ->do_ioctl method to allow unconverted drivers to
      continue working.  Those days are long behind us, all in-tree drivers
      use the ethtool_ops way, and so we no longer need to support this.
      
      The bonding driver is the biggest beneficiary of this; it no longer
      needs to call ioctl() as a fallback if ethtool_ops aren't supported.
      
      Also put a proper copyright statement on ethtool.c.

      mm: Remove slab destructors from kmem_cache_create(). · 20c2df83
      Paul Mundt authored
      Slab destructors were no longer supported after Christoph's
      c59def9f
      
       change. They've been
      BUGs for both slab and slub, and slob never supported them
      either.
      
      This rips out support for the dtor pointer from kmem_cache_create()
      completely and fixes up every single callsite in the kernel (there were
      about 224, not including the slab allocator definitions themselves,
      or the documentation references).

      usermodehelper: Tidy up waiting · 86313c48
      Jeremy Fitzhardinge authored
      
      
      Rather than using a tri-state integer for the wait flag in
      call_usermodehelper_exec, define a proper enum, and use that.  I've
      preserved the integer values so that any callers I've missed should
      still work OK.

      sysfs: add parameter "struct bin_attribute *" in .read/.write methods for sysfs binary attributes · 91a69029
      Zhang Rui authored
      
      
      Well, first of all, I don't want to change so many files either.
      
      What I do:
      Adding a new parameter "struct bin_attribute *" in the
      .read/.write methods for the sysfs binary attributes.
      
      In fact, only the four lines change in fs/sysfs/bin.c and
      include/linux/sysfs.h do the real work.
      But I have to update all the files that use binary attributes
      to make them compatible with the new .read and .write methods.
      I'm not sure if I missed any. :(
      
      Why I do this:
      For a sysfs attribute, we can get a pointer pointing to the
      struct attribute in the .show/.store method,
      while we can't do this for the binary attributes.
      I don't know why this is different, but this does make it not
      so handy to use the binary attributes as the regular ones.
      So I think this patch is reasonable. :)
      
      Who benefits from it:
      The patch that exposes ACPI tables in sysfs
      requires such an improvement.
      All the table binary attributes share the same .read method.
      Parameter "struct bin_attribute *" is used to get
      the table signature and instance number which are used to
      distinguish different ACPI table binary attributes.
      
      Without this parameter, we need to offer different .read methods
      for different ACPI table binary attributes.
      This is impossible as there are various ACPI tables on different
      platforms, and we don't know what they are until they are loaded.

      sysfs: kill unnecessary attribute->owner · 7b595756
      Tejun Heo authored
      sysfs is now completely out of driver/module lifetime game.  After
      deletion, a sysfs node doesn't access anything outside sysfs proper,
      so there's no reason to hold onto the attribute owners.  Note that
      often the wrong modules were accounted for as owners leading to
      accessing removed modules.
      
      This patch kills now unnecessary attribute->owner.  Note that with
      this change, userland holding a sysfs node does not prevent the
      backing module from being unloaded.
      
      For more info regarding lifetime rule cleanup, please read the
      following message.

      merge things properly.)

      [NET]: IPV6 checksum offloading in network devices · d212f87b
      Stephen Hemminger authored
      
      
      The existing model for checksum offload does not correctly handle
      devices that can offload IPV4 and IPV6 only. The NETIF_F_HW_CSUM flag
      implies device can do any arbitrary protocol.
      
      This patch:
       * adds NETIF_F_IPV6_CSUM for those devices
       * fixes bnx2 and tg3 devices that need it
       * add NETIF_F_IPV6_CSUM to ipv6 output (incl GSO)
       * fixes assumptions about NETIF_F_ALL_CSUM in nat
       * adjusts bridge union of checksumming computation
