      neigh: Factor out ___neigh_lookup_noref · 60395a20
      Eric W. Biederman authored
      While looking at the mpls code I found myself writing yet another
      version of neigh_lookup_noref.  We currently have __ipv4_lookup_noref
      and __ipv6_lookup_noref.
      So to make my work a little easier and to make it a smidge easier to
      verify/maintain the mpls code in the future I stopped and wrote
      ___neigh_lookup_noref.  Then I rewote __ipv4_lookup_noref and
      __ipv6_lookup_noref in terms of this new function.  I tested my new
      version by verifying that the same code is generated in
      ip_finish_output2 and ip6_finish_output2 where these functions are
      To get to ___neigh_lookup_noref I added a new neighbour cache table
      function key_eq.  So that the static size of the key would be
      I also added __neigh_lookup_noref for people who want to to lookup
      a neighbour table entry quickly but don't know which neibhgour table
      they are going to look up.

      ipv6: don't call fib6_run_gc() until routing is ready · 2c861cc6
      Michal Kubeček authored
      When loading the ipv6 module, ndisc_init() is called before
      ip6_route_init(). As the former registers a handler calling
      fib6_run_gc(), this opens a window to run the garbage collector
      before necessary data structures are initialized. If a network
      device is initialized in this window, adding MAC address to it
      triggers a NETDEV_CHANGEADDR event, leading to a crash in
      Take the event handler registration out of ndisc_init() into a
      separate function ndisc_late_init() and move it after

      ipv6: Fix sporadic sendmsg -EINVAL when sending to multicast groups. · 14deae41
      David S. Miller authored
      Thanks to excellent diagnosis by Eduard Guzovsky.
      The core problem is that on a network with lots of active
      multicast traffic, the neighbour cache can fill up.  If
      we try to allocate a new route and thus neighbour cache
      entry, the bog-standard GC attempt the neighbour layer does
      in ineffective because route entries hold a reference
      to the existing neighbour entries and GC can only liberate
      entries with no references.
      IPV4 already has a way to handle this, by doing a route cache
      GC in such situations (when neigh attach returns -ENOBUFS).
      So simply mimick this on the ipv6 side.

      bonding: send IPv6 neighbor advertisement on failover · 305d552a
      Brian Haley authored
      This patch adds better IPv6 failover support for bonding devices,
      especially when in active-backup mode and there are only IPv6 addresses
      configured, as reported by Alex Sidorenko.
      - Creates a new file, net/drivers/bonding/bond_ipv6.c, for the
         IPv6-specific routines.  Both regular bonds and VLANs over bonds
         are supported.
      - Adds a new tunable, num_unsol_na, to limit the number of unsolicited
         IPv6 Neighbor Advertisements that are sent on a failover event.
         Default is 1.
      - Creates two new IPv6 neighbor discovery functions:
         These were required to support VLANs since we have to be able to
         add the VLAN id to the skb since ndisc_send_na() and friends
         shouldn't be asked to do this.  These two routines are basically
         __ndisc_send() split into two pieces, in a slightly different order.
      - Updates Documentation/networking/bonding.txt and bumps the rev of bond
         support to 3.4.0.
      On failover, this new code will generate one packet:
      - An unsolicited IPv6 Neighbor Advertisement, which helps the switch
         learn that the address has moved to the new slave.
      Testing has shown that sending just the NA results in pretty good
      behavior when in active-back mode, I saw no lost ping packets for example.

      [IPv6]: Export userland ND options through netlink (RDNSS support) · 31910575
      Pierre Ynard authored
      As discussed before, this patch provides userland with a way to access
      relevant options in Router Advertisements, after they are processed
      and validated by the kernel. Extra options are processed in a generic
      way; this patch only exports RDNSS options described in RFC5006, but
      support to control which options are exported could be easily added.
      A new rtnetlink message type is defined, to transport Neighbor
      Discovery options, along with optional context information. At the
      moment only the address of the router sending an RDNSS option is
      included, but additional attributes may be later defined, if needed by
      new use cases.

      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!
