      cfg80211: 802.11p OCB mode handling · 6e0bd6c3
      Rostislav Lisovy authored
      This patch adds new iface type (NL80211_IFTYPE_OCB) representing
      the OCB (Outside the Context of a BSS) mode.
      When establishing a connection to the network a cfg80211_join_ocb
      function is called (particular nl80211_command is added as well).
      A mandatory parameters during the ocb_join operation are 'center
      frequency' and 'channel width (5/10 MHz)'.
      Changes done in mac80211 are minimal possible required to avoid
      many warnings (warning: enumeration value 'NL80211_IFTYPE_OCB'
      not handled in switch) during compilation. Full functionality
      (where needed) is added in the following patch.

      cfg80211: make ethtool the driver's responsibility · b7ffbd7e
      Johannes Berg authored
      Currently, cfg80211 tries to implement ethtool, but that doesn't
      really scale well, with all the different operations. Make the
      lower-level driver responsible for it, which currently only has
      an effect on mac80211. It will similarly not scale well at that
      level though, since mac80211 also has many drivers.
      To cleanly implement this in mac80211, introduce a new file and
      move some code to appropriate places.

      Get rid of the cfg80211_can_add_interface() and

      cfg80211: allow userspace to take ownership of interfaces · 78f22b6a
      Johannes Berg authored
      When dynamically creating interfaces from userspace, e.g. for P2P usage,
      such interfaces are usually owned by the process that created them, i.e.
      wpa_supplicant. Should wpa_supplicant crash, such interfaces will often
      cease operating properly and cause problems on restarting the process.
      To avoid this problem, introduce an ownership concept for interfaces. If
      an interface is owned by a netlink socket, then it will be destroyed if
      the netlink socket is closed for any reason, including if the process it
      belongs to crashed. This gives us a race-free way to get rid of any such

      cfg80211: send stop AP event only due to internal reason · 7c8d5e03
      Ilan Peer authored
      Commit "nl80211: send event when AP operation is stopped" added an
      event to notify user space that an AP interface has been stopped, to
      handle cases such as suspend etc. The event is sent regardless
      if the stop AP flow was triggered by user space or due to internal state
      This might cause issues with wpa_supplicant/hostapd flows that consider
      stop AP flow as a synchronous one, e.g., AP/GO channel change in the
      absence of CSA support. In such cases, the flow will restart the AP
      immediately after the stop AP flow is done, and only handle the stop
      AP event after the current flow is done, and as a result stop the AP
      Change the current implementation to only send the event in case the
      stop AP was triggered due to an internal reason.

      cfg80211: send scan results from work queue · f9d15d16
      Johannes Berg authored
      Due to the previous commit, when a scan finishes, it is in theory
      possible to hit the following sequence:
       1. interface starts being removed
       2. scan is cancelled by driver and cfg80211 is notified
       3. scan done work is scheduled
       4. interface is removed completely, rdev->scan_req is freed,
          event sent to userspace but scan done work remains pending
       5. new scan is requested on another virtual interface
       6. scan done work runs, freeing the still-running scan
      To fix this situation, hang on to the scan done message and block
      new scans while that is the case, and only send the message from
      the work function, regardless of whether the scan_req is already
      freed from interface removal. This makes step 5 above impossible
      and changes step 6 to be
       5. scan done work runs, sending the scan done message
      As this can't work for wext, so we send the message immediately,
      but this shouldn't be an issue since we still return -EBUSY.

      cfg80211: fix scan done race · a617302c
      Johannes Berg authored
      When an interface/wdev is removed, any ongoing scan should be
      cancelled by the driver. This will make it call cfg80211, which
      only queues a work struct. If interface/wdev removal is quick
      enough, this can leave the scan request pending and processed
      only after the interface is gone, causing a use-after-free.
      Fix this by making sure the scan request is not pending after
      the interface is destroyed. We can't flush or cancel the work
      item due to locking concerns, but when it'll run it shouldn't
      find anything to do. This leaves a potential issue, if a new
      scan gets requested before the work runs, it prematurely stops
      the running scan, potentially causing another crash. I'll fix
      that in the next patch.
      This was particularly observed with P2P_DEVICE wdevs, likely
      because freeing them is quicker than freeing netdevs.

      cfg80211: don't "leak" uncompleted scans · 4a58e7c3
      Eliad Peller authored
      ___cfg80211_scan_done() can be called in some cases
      (e.g. on NETDEV_DOWN) before the low level driver
      notified scan completion (which is indicated by
      passing leak=true).
      Clearing rdev->scan_req in this case is buggy, as
      scan_done_wk might have already being queued/running
      (and can't be flushed as it takes rtnl()).
      If a new scan will be requested at this stage, the
      scan_done_wk will try freeing it (instead of the
      previous scan), and this will later result in
      a use after free.
      Simply remove the "leak" option, and replace it with
      a standard WARN_ON.

      cfg80211/nl80211: Add packet coalesce support · be29b99a
      Amitkumar Karwar authored
      In most cases, host that receives IPv4 and IPv6 multicast/broadcast
      packets does not do anything with these packets. Therefore the
      reception of these unwanted packets causes unnecessary processing
      and power consumption.
      Packet coalesce feature helps to reduce number of received
      interrupts to host by buffering these packets in firmware/hardware
      for some predefined time. Received interrupt will be generated when
      one of the following events occur.
      a) Expiration of hardware timer whose expiration time is set to
      maximum coalescing delay of matching coalesce rule.
      b) Coalescing buffer in hardware reaches it's limit.
      c) Packet doesn't match any of the configured coalesce rules.
      This patch adds set/get configuration support for packet coalesce.
      User needs to configure following parameters for creating a coalesce
      a) Maximum coalescing delay
      b) List of packet patterns which needs to be matched
      c) Condition for coalescence. pattern 'match' or 'no match'
      Multiple such rules can be created.
      This feature needs to be advertised during driver initialization.
      Drivers are supposed to do required firmware/hardware settings based
      on user configuration.

      cfg80211: fix potential deadlock regression · 256c90de
      Johannes Berg authored
      My big locking cleanups caused a problem by registering the
      rfkill instance with the RTNL held, while the callback also
      acquires the RTNL. This potentially causes a deadlock since
      the two locks used (rfkill mutex and RTNL) can be acquired
      in two different orders. Fix this by (un)registering rfkill
      without holding the RTNL. This needs to be done after the
      device struct is registered, but that can also be done w/o
      holding the RTNL.

      cfg80211: separate internal SME implementation · ceca7b71
      Johannes Berg authored
      The current internal SME implementation in cfg80211 is
      very mixed up with the MLME handling, which has been
      causing issues for a long time. There are three things
      that the implementation has to provide:
       * a basic SME implementation for nl80211's connect()
         call (for drivers implementing auth/assoc, which is
         really just mac80211) and wireless extensions
       * MLME events for the userspace SME
       * SME events (connected, disconnected etc.) for all
         different SME implementation possibilities (driver,
         cfg80211 and userspace)
      To achieve these goals it isn't necessary to track the
      software SME's connection status outside of it's state
      (which is the part that caused many issues.) Instead,
      track it only in the SME data (wdev->conn) and in the
      general case only track whether the wdev is connected
      or not (via wdev->current_bss.)
      Also separate the internal implementation to not have
      callbacks from the SME events, but rather call it from
      the API functions that the driver (or rather mac80211)
      calls. This separates the code better.
