      Receiving packets while we are cleaning up a network namespace is a
      racy proposition. It is possible when the packet arrives that we have
      removed some but not all of the state we need to fully process it.  We
      have the choice of either playing wack-a-mole with the cleanup routines
      or simply dropping packets when we don't have a network namespace to
      handle them.
      Since the check looks inexpensive in netif_receive_skb let's just
      drop the incoming packets.

      sctp: Make sure N * sizeof(union sctp_addr) does not overflow. · 735ce972
      David S. Miller authored
      As noticed by Gabriel Campana, the kmalloc() length arg
      passed in by sctp_getsockopt_local_addrs_old() can overflow
      if ->addr_num is large enough.
      Therefore, enforce an appropriate limit.

      netlink: genl: fix circular locking · 6d1a3fb5
      Patrick McHardy authored
      genetlink has a circular locking dependency when dumping the registered
      - dump start:
      genl_rcv()            : take genl_mutex
      genl_rcv_msg()        : call netlink_dump_start() while holding genl_mutex
      netlink_dump()        : take nlk->cb_mutex
      ctrl_dumpfamily()     : try to detect this case and not take genl_mutex a
                              second time
      - dump continuance:
      netlink_rcv()         : call netlink_dump
      netlink_dump          : take nlk->cb_mutex
      ctrl_dumpfamily()     : take genl_mutex
      Register genl_lock as callback mutex with netlink to fix this. This slightly
      widens an already existing module unload race, the genl ops used during the
      dump might go away when the module is unloaded. Thomas Graf is working on a
      seperate fix for this.

      Revert "mac80211: Use skb_header_cloned() on TX path." · 3a5be7d4
      David S. Miller authored
      This reverts commit 608961a5
      The problem is that the mac80211 stack not only needs to be able to
      muck with the link-level headers, it also might need to mangle all of
      the packet data if doing sw wireless encryption.
      This fixes kernel bugzilla #10903.  Thanks to Didier Raboud (for the
      bugzilla report), Andrew Prince (for bisecting), Johannes Berg (for
      bringing this bisection analysis to my attention), and Ilpo (for
      trying to analyze this purely from the TCP side).
      In 2.6.27 we can take another stab at this, by using something like
      skb_cow_data() when the TX path of mac80211 ends up with a non-NULL
      tx->key.  The ESP protocol code in the IPSEC stack can be used as a
      model for implementation.

      af_unix: fix 'poll for write'/ connected DGRAM sockets · 3c73419c
      Rainer Weikusat authored
      The unix_dgram_sendmsg routine implements a (somewhat crude)
      form of receiver-imposed flow control by comparing the length of the
      receive queue of the 'peer socket' with the max_ack_backlog value
      stored in the corresponding sock structure, either blocking
      the thread which caused the send-routine to be called or returning
      EAGAIN. This routine is used by both SOCK_DGRAM and SOCK_SEQPACKET
      sockets. The poll-implementation for these socket types is
      datagram_poll from core/datagram.c. A socket is deemed to be writeable
      by this routine when the memory presently consumed by datagrams
      owned by it is less than the configured socket send buffer size. This
      is always wrong for connected PF_UNIX non-stream sockets when the
      abovementioned receive queue is currently considered to be full.
      'poll' will then return, indicating that the socket is writeable, but
      a subsequent write result in EAGAIN, effectively causing an
      (usual) application to 'poll for writeability by repeated send request
      with O_NONBLOCK set' until it has consumed its time quantum.
      The change below uses a suitably modified variant of the datagram_poll
      routines for both type of PF_UNIX sockets, which tests if the
      recv-queue of the peer a socket is connected to is presently
      considered to be 'full' as part of the 'is this socket
      writeable'-checking code. The socket being polled is additionally
      put onto the peer_wait wait queue associated with its peer, because the
      unix_dgram_sendmsg routine does a wake up on this queue after a
      datagram was received and the 'other wakeup call' is done implicitly
      as part of skb destruction, meaning, a process blocked in poll
      because of a full peer receive queue could otherwise sleep forever
      if no datagram owned by its socket was already sitting on this queue.
      Among this change is a small (inline) helper routine named
      'unix_recvq_full', which consolidates the actual testing code (in three
      different places) into a single location.

      tun: Proper handling of IPv6 header in tun driver when TUN_NO_PI is set · f09f7ee2
      Ang Way Chuang authored
      By default, tun.c running in TUN_TUN_DEV mode will set the protocol of
      packet to IPv4 if TUN_NO_PI is set. My program failed to work when I
      assumed that the driver will check the first nibble of packet,
      determine IP version and set the appropriate protocol.

      atl1: relax eeprom mac address error check · 58c7821c
      Radu Cristescu authored
      The atl1 driver tries to determine the MAC address thusly:
      	- If an EEPROM exists, read the MAC address from EEPROM and
      	  validate it.
      	- If an EEPROM doesn't exist, try to read a MAC address from
      	  SPI flash.
      	- If that fails, try to read a MAC address directly from the
      	  MAC Station Address register.
      	- If that fails, assign a random MAC address provided by the
      We now have a report of a system fitted with an EEPROM containing all
      zeros where we expect the MAC address to be, and we currently handle
      this as an error condition.  Turns out, on this system the BIOS writes
      a valid MAC address to the NIC's MAC Station Address register, but we
      never try to read it because we return an error when we find the all-
      zeros address in EEPROM.
      This patch relaxes the error check and continues looking for a MAC
      address even if it finds an illegal one in EEPROM.

      net/enc28j60: low power mode · 7dac6f8d
      David Brownell authored
      Keep enc28j60 chips in low-power mode when they're not in use.
      At typically 120 mA, these chips run hot even when idle; this
      low power mode cuts that power usage by a factor of around 100.
      This version provides a generic routine to poll a register until
      its masked value equals some value ... e.g. bit set or cleared.
      It's basically what the previous wait_phy_ready() did, but this
      version is generalized to support the handshaking needed to
      enter and exit low power mode.
