      udp: Wrong locking code in udp seq_file infrastructure · 30842f29
      Vitaly Mayatskikh authored
      Reading zero bytes from /proc/net/udp or other similar files which use
      the same seq_file udp infrastructure panics kernel in that way:
      [ BUG: bad unlock balance detected! ]
      read/1985 is trying to release lock (&table->hash[i].lock) at:
      [<ffffffff81321d83>] udp_seq_stop+0x27/0x29
      but there are no more locks to release!
      other info that might help us debug this:

      udp_seq_stop() tries to unlock not yet locked spinlock. The lock was lost
      during splitting global udp_hash_lock to subsequent spinlocks.

      netfilter: nf_conntrack_tcp: fix unaligned memory access in tcp_sack · 534f81a5
      Mark H. Weaver authored
      This patch fixes an unaligned memory access in tcp_sack while reading
      sequence numbers from TCP selective acknowledgement options.  Prior to
      applying this patch, upstream linux- was occasionally
      generating messages like this on my sparc64 system:

      netfilter: sysctl support of logger choice · 17625274
      Eric Leblond authored
      This patchs adds support of modification of the used logger via sysctl.
      It can be used to change the logger to module that can not use the bind
      operation (ipt_LOG and ipt_ULOG). For this purpose, it creates a
      directory /proc/sys/net/netfilter/nf_log which contains a file
      per-protocol. The content of the file is the name current logger (NONE if
      not set) and a logger can be setup by simply echoing its name to the file.
      By echoing "NONE" to a /proc/sys/net/netfilter/nf_log/PROTO file, the
      logger corresponding to this PROTO is set to NULL.
