      batman-adv: Fix invalid read while copying bat_iv.bcast_own · 13bbdd37
      Sven Eckelmann authored
      batadv_iv_ogm_orig_del_if removes a part of the bcast_own which previously
      belonged to the now removed interface. This is done by copying all data
      which comes before the removed interface and then appending all the data
      which comes after the removed interface.
      The address calculation for the position of the data which comes after the
      removed interface assumed that the bat_iv.bcast_own is a pointer to a
      single byte datatype. But it is a pointer to unsigned long and thus the
      calculated position was wrong off factor sizeof(unsigned long).
      Fixes: 83a8342678a0 ("more basic routing code added (forwarding packets /
      bitarray added)")

      tcp: fix zero cwnd in tcp_cwnd_reduction · 8b8a321f
      Yuchung Cheng authored
      Patch 3759824d ("tcp: PRR uses CRB mode by default and SS mode
      conditionally") introduced a bug that cwnd may become 0 when both
      inflight and sndcnt are 0 (cwnd = inflight + sndcnt). This may lead
      to a div-by-zero if the connection starts another cwnd reduction
      phase by setting tp->prior_cwnd to the current cwnd (0) in
      To prevent this we skip PRR operation when nothing is acked or
      sacked. Then cwnd must be positive in all cases as long as ssthresh
      is positive:
      1) The proportional reduction mode
         inflight > ssthresh > 0
      2) The reduction bound mode
        a) inflight == ssthresh > 0
        b) inflight < ssthresh
           sndcnt > 0 since newly_acked_sacked > 0 and inflight < ssthresh
      Therefore in all cases inflight and sndcnt can not both be 0.
      We check invalid tp->prior_cwnd to avoid potential div0 bugs.
      In reality this bug is triggered only with a sequence of less common
      events.  For example, the connection is terminating an ECN-triggered
      cwnd reduction with an inflight 0, then it receives reordered/old
      ACKs or DSACKs from prior transmission (which acks nothing). Or the
      connection is in fast recovery stage that marks everything lost,
      but fails to retransmit due to local issues, then receives data
      packets from other end which acks nothing.
      Fixes: 3759824d

      commit d79f16c0
       fixed a user triggerable
      scribble on free memory but added a new one which allows the user to
      scribble even more and user controlled data into freed space.
      As with 6pack we need to halt the queue before we free the buffers, because
      the transmit logic is not protected by the semaphore.

      af_unix: Fix splice-bind deadlock · c845acb3
      Rainer Weikusat authored
      On 2015/11/06, Dmitry Vyukov reported a deadlock involving the splice
      system call and AF_UNIX sockets,
      The situation was analyzed as
      (a while ago) A: socketpair()
      B: splice() from a pipe to /mnt/regular_file
      	does sb_start_write() on /mnt
      C: try to freeze /mnt
      	wait for B to finish with /mnt
      A: bind() try to bind our socket to /mnt/new_socket_name
      	lock our socket, see it not bound yet
      	decide that it needs to create something in /mnt
      	try to do sb_start_write() on /mnt, block (it's
      	waiting for C).
      D: splice() from the same pipe to our socket
      	lock the pipe, see that socket is connected
      	try to lock the socket, block waiting for A
      B:	get around to actually feeding a chunk from
      	pipe to file, try to lock the pipe.  Deadlock.
      on 2015/11/10 by Al Viro,
      The patch fixes this by removing the kern_path_create related code from
      unix_mknod and executing it as part of unix_bind prior acquiring the
      readlock of the socket in question. This means that A (as used above)
      will sb_start_write on /mnt before it acquires the readlock, hence, it
      won't indirectly block B which first did a sb_start_write and then
      waited for a thread trying to acquire the readlock. Consequently, A
      being blocked by C waiting for B won't cause a deadlock anymore
      (effectively, both A and B acquire two locks in opposite order in the
      situation described above).
      Dmitry Vyukov(<dvyukov@google.com>) tested the original patch.

      net: Propagate lookup failure in l3mdev_get_saddr to caller · b5bdacf3
      David Ahern authored
      Commands run in a vrf context are not failing as expected on a route lookup:
          root@kenny:~# ip ro ls table vrf-red
          unreachable default
          root@kenny:~# ping -I vrf-red -c1 -w1
          ping: Warning: source address might be selected on device other than vrf-red.
          PING ( from vrf-red: 56(84) bytes of data.
          --- ping statistics ---
          2 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 999ms
      Since the vrf table does not have a route for the ping
      should have failed. The saddr lookup causes a full VRF table lookup.
      Propogating a lookup failure to the user allows the command to fail as
          root@kenny:~# ping -I vrf-red -c1 -w1
          connect: No route to host

      hayeswang authored
      When the reset_resume() is called, the flag of SELECTIVE_SUSPEND should be
      cleared and reinitialize the device, whether the SELECTIVE_SUSPEND is set
      or not. If reset_resume() is called, it means the power supply is cut or the
      device is reset. That is, the device wouldn't be in runtime suspend state and
      the reinitialization is necessary.
