      iscsi-target: Drop bogus struct file usage for iSCSI/SCTP · bf6932f4
      Al Viro authored
      From Al Viro:
      	BTW, speaking of struct file treatment related to sockets -
              there's this piece of code in iscsi:
               * The SCTP stack needs struct socket->file.
              if ((np->np_network_transport == ISCSI_SCTP_TCP) ||
                  (np->np_network_transport == ISCSI_SCTP_UDP)) {
                      if (!new_sock->file) {
                              new_sock->file = kzalloc(
                                              sizeof(struct file), GFP_KERNEL);
      For one thing, as far as I can see it'not true - sctp does *not* depend on
      socket->file being non-NULL; it does, in one place, check socket->file->f_flags
      for O_NONBLOCK, but there it treats NULL socket->file as "flag not set".
      Which is the case here anyway - the fake struct file created in
      __iscsi_target_login_thread() (and in iscsi_target_setup_login_socket(), with
      the same excuse) do *not* get that flag set.
      Moreover, it's a bloody serious violation of a bunch of asserts in VFS;
      all struct file instances should come from filp_cachep, via get_empty_filp()
      (or alloc_file(), which is a wrapper for it).  FWIW, I'm very tempted to
      do this and be done with the entire mess:

      iscsi-target: Add iSCSI fabric support for target v4.1 · e48354ce
      Nicholas Bellinger authored
      The Linux-iSCSI.org target module is a full featured in-kernel
      software implementation of iSCSI target mode (RFC-3720) for the
      current WIP mainline target v4.1 infrastructure code for the v3.1
      kernel.  More information can be found here:
      This includes support for:
         * RFC-3720 defined request / response state machines and support for
           all defined iSCSI operation codes from Section using libiscsi
           include/scsi/iscsi_proto.h PDU definitions
         * Target v4.1 compatible control plane using the generic layout in
           target_core_fabric_configfs.c and fabric dependent attributes
           within /sys/kernel/config/target/iscsi/ subdirectories.
         * Target v4.1 compatible iSCSI statistics based on RFC-4544 (iSCSI MIBS)
         * Support for IPv6 and IPv4 network portals in M:N mapping to TPGs
         * iSCSI Error Recovery Hierarchy support
         * Per iSCSI connection RX/TX thread pair scheduling affinity
         * crc32c + crc32c_intel SSEv4 instruction offload support using libcrypto
         * CHAP Authentication support using libcrypto
         * Conversion to use internal SGl allocation with iscsit_alloc_buffs() ->
