      [PATCH] remove many unneeded #includes of sched.h · cd354f1a
      Tim Schmielau authored
      
      
      After Al Viro (finally) succeeded in removing the sched.h #include in module.h
      recently, it makes sense again to remove other superfluous sched.h includes.
      There are quite a lot of files which include it but don't actually need
      anything defined in there.  Presumably these includes were once needed for
      macros that used to live in sched.h, but moved to other header files in the
      course of cleaning it up.
      
      To ease the pain, this time I did not fiddle with any header files and only
      removed #includes from .c-files, which tend to cause less trouble.
      
      Compile tested against 2.6.20-rc2 and 2.6.20-rc2-mm2 (with offsets) on alpha,
      arm, i386, ia64, mips, powerpc, and x86_64 with allnoconfig, defconfig,
      allmodconfig, and allyesconfig as well as a few randconfigs on x86_64 and all
      configs in arch/arm/configs on arm.  I also checked that no new warnings were
      introduced by the patch (actually, some warnings are removed that were emitted
      by unnecessarily included header files).

      [NET] ethernet: Fix first packet goes out with MAC 00:00:00:00:00:00 · f8d0e3f1
      Jamal Hadi Salim authored
      
      
      When you turn off ARP on a netdevice then the first packet always goes
      out with a dstMAC of all zeroes. This is because the first packet is
      used to resolve ARP entries. Even though the ARP entry may be resolved
      (I tried by setting a static ARP entry for a host i was pinging from),
      it gets overwritten by virtue of having the netdevice disabling ARP.
      
      Subsequent packets go out fine with correct dstMAC address (which may
      be why people have ignored reporting this issue).
      
      To cut the story short: 
      
      the culprit code is in net/ethernet/eth.c::eth_header()
      
      ----
              /*
               *      Anyway, the loopback-device should never use this
      function...
               */
      
              if (dev->flags & (IFF_LOOPBACK|IFF_NOARP))
              {
                      memset(eth->h_dest, 0, dev->addr_len);
                      return ETH_HLEN;
              }
      
      	if(daddr)
              {
                      memcpy(eth->h_dest,daddr,dev->addr_len);
                      return ETH_HLEN;
              }
      
      ----
      
      Note how the h_dest is being reset when device has IFF_NOARP.
      
      As a note:
      All devices including loopback pass a daddr. loopback in fact passes
      a 0 all the time ;-> 
      This means i can delete the check totaly or i can remove the IFF_NOARP

      --------------------
      I think, it was me who did this crap. It was so long ago I do not remember
      why it was made.
      
      I remember some troubles with dummy device. It tried to resolve
      addresses, apparently, without success and generated errors instead of
      blackholing. I think the problem was eventually solved at neighbour
      level.
      
      After some thinking I suspect the deletion of this chunk could change
      behaviour of some parts which do not use neighbour cache f.e. packet
      socket.
      
      I think safer approach would be to move this chunk after if (daddr).
      And the possibility to remove this completely could be analyzed later.
      --------------------
      
      Patch updated with Alexey's safer suggestions.

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      
      Let it rip!
