      [Bluetooth] Reject L2CAP connections on an insecure ACL link · e7c29cb1
      Marcel Holtmann authored
      The Security Mode 4 of the Bluetooth 2.1 specification has strict
      authentication and encryption requirements. It is the initiators job
      to create a secure ACL link. However in case of malicious devices, the
      acceptor has to make sure that the ACL is encrypted before allowing
      any kind of L2CAP connection. The only exception here is the PSM 1 for
      the service discovery protocol, because that is allowed to run on an
      insecure ACL link.
      Previously it was enough to reject a L2CAP connection during the
      connection setup phase, but with Bluetooth 2.1 it is forbidden to
      do any L2CAP protocol exchange on an insecure link (except SDP).
      The new hci_conn_check_link_mode() function can be used to check the
      integrity of an ACL link. This functions also takes care of the cases
      where Security Mode 4 is disabled or one of the devices is based on
      an older specification.

      [Bluetooth] Enforce correct authentication requirements · 09ab6f4c
      Marcel Holtmann authored
      With the introduction of Security Mode 4 and Simple Pairing from the
      Bluetooth 2.1 specification it became mandatory that the initiator
      requires authentication and encryption before any L2CAP channel can
      be established. The only exception here is PSM 1 for the service
      discovery protocol (SDP). It is meant to be used without any encryption
      since it contains only public information. This is how Bluetooth 2.0
      and before handle connections on PSM 1.
      For Bluetooth 2.1 devices the pairing procedure differentiates between
      no bonding, general bonding and dedicated bonding. The L2CAP layer
      wrongly uses always general bonding when creating new connections, but it
      should not do this for SDP connections. In this case the authentication
      requirement should be no bonding and the just-works model should be used,
      but in case of non-SDP connection it is required to use general bonding.
      If the new connection requires man-in-the-middle (MITM) protection, it
      also first wrongly creates an unauthenticated link key and then later on
      requests an upgrade to an authenticated link key to provide full MITM
      protection. With Simple Pairing the link key generation is an expensive
      operation (compared to Bluetooth 2.0 and before) and doing this twice
      during a connection setup causes a noticeable delay when establishing
      a new connection. This should be avoided to not regress from the expected
      Bluetooth 2.0 connection times. The authentication requirements are known
      up-front and so enforce them.
      To fulfill these requirements the hci_connect() function has been extended
      with an authentication requirement parameter that will be stored inside
      the connection information and can be retrieved by userspace at any
      time. This allows the correct IO capabilities exchange and results in
      the expected behavior.

      [Bluetooth] Fix reference counting during ACL config stage · f1c08ca5
      Marcel Holtmann authored
      The ACL config stage keeps holding a reference count on incoming
      connections when requesting the extended features. This results in
      keeping an ACL link up without any users. The problem here is that
      the Bluetooth specification doesn't define an ownership of the ACL
      link and thus it can happen that the implementation on the initiator
      side doesn't care about disconnecting unused links. In this case the
      acceptor needs to take care of this.

      NFS: Restore missing hunk in NFS mount option parser · af904dea
      Chuck Lever authored
      Automounter maps can contain mount options valid for other NFS
      implementations but not for Linux.  The Linux automounter uses the
      mount command's "-s" command line option ("s" for "sloppy") so that
      mount requests containing such options are not rejected.
      Commit f45663ce
       attempted to address a
      known regression with text-based NFS mount option parsing.  Unrecognized
      mount options would cause mount requests to fail, even if the "-s"
      option was used on the mount command line.
      Unfortunately, this commit was not complete as submitted.  It adds a
      new mount option, "sloppy".  But it is missing a hunk, so it now allows
      NFS mounts with unrecognized mount options, even if the "sloppy" option
      is not present.  This could be a problem if a required critical mount
      option such as "sync" is misspelled, for example, and is considered a
      regression from 2.6.26.
      This patch restores the missing hunk.  Now, the default behavior of
      text-based NFS mount options is as before: any unrecognized mount option
      will cause the mount to fail.
      Please include this in 2.6.27-rc.
      Thanks to Neil Brown for reporting this.

      bridge: don't allow setting hello time to zero · 8d4698f7
      Stephen Hemminger authored
      Dushan Tcholich reports that on his system ksoftirqd can consume
      between %6 to %10 of cpu time, and cause ~200 context switches per
      He then correlated this with a report by bdupree@techfinesse.com:
      and the culprit cause seems to be starting the bridge interface.
      In particular, when starting the bridge interface, his scripts
      are specifying a hello timer interval of "0".
      The bridge hello time can't be safely set to values less than 1
      second, otherwise it is possible to end up with a runaway timer.

      This patch provides a function to purge all timewait sockets related
      to a network namespace. The timewait sockets life cycle is not tied with
      the network namespace, that means the timewait sockets stay alive while
      the network namespace dies. The timewait sockets are for avoiding to
      receive a duplicate packet from the network, if the network namespace is
      freed, the network stack is removed, so no chance to receive any packets
      from the outside world. Furthermore, having a pending destruction timer
      on these sockets with a network namespace freed is not safe and will lead
      to an oops if the timer callback which try to access data belonging to 
      the namespace like for example in:
      		-> NET_INC_STATS_BH(twsk_net(tw), LINUX_MIB_TIMEWAITED);
      Purging the timewait sockets at the network namespace destruction will:
       1) speed up memory freeing for the namespace
       2) fix kernel panic on asynchronous timewait destruction
