      9p: Add fscache support to 9p · 60e78d2c
      Abhishek Kulkarni authored
      This patch adds a persistent, read-only caching facility for
      9p clients using the FS-Cache caching backend.
      When the fscache facility is enabled, each inode is associated
      with a corresponding vcookie which is an index into the FS-Cache
      indexing tree. The FS-Cache indexing tree is indexed at 3 levels:
      - session object associated with each mount.
      - inode/vcookie
      - actual data (pages)
      A cache tag is chosen randomly for each session. These tags can
      be read off /sys/fs/9p/caches and can be passed as a mount-time
      parameter to re-attach to the specified caching session.

      net_sched: fix estimator lock selection for mq child qdiscs · 23bcf634
      Patrick McHardy authored
      When new child qdiscs are attached to the mq qdisc, they are actually
      attached as root qdiscs to the device queues. The lock selection for
      new estimators incorrectly picks the root lock of the existing and
      to be replaced qdisc, which results in a use-after-free once the old
      qdisc has been destroyed.
      Mark mq qdisc instances with a new flag and treat qdiscs attached to
      mq as children similar to regular root qdiscs.
      Additionally prevent estimators from being attached to the mq qdisc
      itself since it only updates its byte and packet counters during dumps.

      sctp: Sysctl configuration for IPv4 Address Scoping · 72388433
      Bhaskar Dutta authored
      This patch introduces a new sysctl option to make IPv4 Address Scoping
      configurable <draft-stewart-tsvwg-sctp-ipv4-00.txt>.
      In networking environments where DNAT rules in iptables prerouting
      chains convert destination IP's to link-local/private IP addresses,
      SCTP connections fail to establish as the INIT chunk is dropped by the
      kernel due to address scope match failure.
      For example to support overlapping IP addresses (same IP address with
      different vlan id) a Layer-5 application listens on link local IP's,
      and there is a DNAT rule that maps the destination IP to a link local
      IP. Such applications never get the SCTP INIT if the address-scoping
      draft is strictly followed.
      This sysctl configuration allows SCTP to function in such
      unconventional networking environments.
      Sysctl options:
      0 - Disable IPv4 address scoping draft altogether
      1 - Enable IPv4 address scoping (default, current behavior)
      2 - Enable address scoping but allow IPv4 private addresses in init/init-ack
      3 - Enable address scoping but allow IPv4 link local address in init/init-ack

      sctp: Fix SCTP_MAXSEG socket option to comply to spec. · f68b2e05
      Vlad Yasevich authored
      We had a bug that we never stored the user-defined value for
      MAXSEG when setting the value on an association.  Thus future
      PMTU events ended up re-writing the frag point and increasing
      it past user limit.  Additionally, when setting the option on
      the socket/endpoint, we effect all current associations, which
      is against spec.
      Now, we store the user 'maxseg' value along with the computed
      'frag_point'.  We inherit 'maxseg' from the socket at association
      creation and use it as an upper limit for 'frag_point' when its

      sctp: Don't do NAGLE delay on large writes that were fragmented small · cb95ea32
      Vlad Yasevich authored
      SCTP will delay the last part of a large write due to NAGLE, if that
      part is smaller then MTU.  Since we are doing large writes, we might
      as well send the last portion now instead of waiting untill the next
      large write happens.  The small portion will be sent as is regardless,
      so it's better to not delay it.
      This is a result of much discussions with Wei Yongjun <yjwei@cn.fujitsu.com>
      and Doug Graham <dgraham@nortel.com>.  Many thanks go out to them.

      sctp: drop a_rwnd to 0 when receive buffer overflows. · 4d3c46e6
      Vlad Yasevich authored
      SCTP has a problem that when small chunks are used, it is possible
      to exhaust the receiver buffer without fully closing receive window.
      This happens due to all overhead that we have account for with small
      messages.  To fix this, when receive buffer is exceeded, we'll drop
      the window to 0 and save the 'drop' portion.  When application starts
      reading data and freeing up recevie buffer space, we'll wait until
      we've reached the 'drop' window and then add back this 'drop' one
      mtu at a time.  This worked well in testing and under stress produced
      rather even recovery.

      sctp: Send user messages to the lower layer as one · 9c5c62be
      Vlad Yasevich authored
      Currenlty, sctp breaks up user messages into fragments and
      sends each fragment to the lower layer by itself.  This means
      that for each fragment we go all the way down the stack
      and back up.  This also discourages bundling of multiple
      fragments when they can fit into a sigle packet (ex: due
      to user setting a low fragmentation threashold).
      We introduce a new command SCTP_CMD_SND_MSG and hand the
      whole message down state machine.  The state machine and
      the side-effect parser will cork the queue, add all chunks
      from the message to the queue, and then un-cork the queue
      thus causing the chunks to get transmitted.

      sctp: Disallow new connection on a closing socket · bec9640b
      Vlad Yasevich authored
      If a socket has a lot of association that are in the process of
      of being closed/aborted, it is possible for a remote to establish
      new associations during the time period that the old ones are shutting
      down.  If this was a result of a close() call, there will be no socket
      and will cause a memory leak.  We'll prevent this by setting the
      socket state to CLOSING and disallow new associations when in this state.

      tcp: replace hard coded GFP_KERNEL with sk_allocation · aa133076
      Wu Fengguang authored
      This fixed a lockdep warning which appeared when doing stress
      memory tests over NFS:
      	inconsistent {RECLAIM_FS-ON-W} -> {IN-RECLAIM_FS-W} usage.
      	page reclaim => nfs_writepage => tcp_sendmsg => lock sk_lock
      	mount_root => nfs_root_data => tcp_close => lock sk_lock =>
      			tcp_send_fin => alloc_skb_fclone => page reclaim
      David raised a concern that if the allocation fails in tcp_send_fin(), and it's
      GFP_ATOMIC, we are going to yield() (which sleeps) and loop endlessly waiting
      for the allocation to succeed.
      But fact is, the original GFP_KERNEL also sleeps. GFP_ATOMIC+yield() looks
      weird, but it is no worse the implicit sleep inside GFP_KERNEL. Both could
      loop endlessly under memory pressure.
