      netpoll: cleanup sparse warnings · 0790bbb6
      Neil Horman authored
      With my recent commit I introduced two sparse warnings.  Looking closer there
      were a few more in the same file, so I fixed them all up.  Basic rcu pointer
      dereferencing suff.
      I've validated these changes using CONFIG_PROVE_RCU while starting and stopping
      netconsole repeatedly in bonded and non-bonded configurations

      netpoll: Fix __netpoll_rcu_free so that it can hold the rtnl lock · 2cde6acd
      Neil Horman authored
      __netpoll_rcu_free is used to free netpoll structures when the rtnl_lock is
      already held.  The mechanism is used to asynchronously call __netpoll_cleanup
      outside of the holding of the rtnl_lock, so as to avoid deadlock.
      Unfortunately, __netpoll_cleanup modifies pointers (dev->np), which means the
      rtnl_lock must be held while calling it.  Further, it cannot be held, because
      rcu callbacks may be issued in softirq contexts, which cannot sleep.
      Fix this by converting the rcu callback to a work queue that is guaranteed to
      get scheduled in process context, so that we can hold the rtnl properly while
      calling __netpoll_cleanup
      Tested successfully by myself.

      skbuff: create skb_panic() function and its wrappers · f05de73b
      Jean Sacren authored
      Create skb_panic() function in lieu of both skb_over_panic() and
      skb_under_panic() so that code duplication would be avoided. Update type
      and variable name where necessary.
      Jiri Pirko suggested using wrappers so that we would be able to keep the
      fruits of the original code.

      net: sctp: sctp_auth_make_key_vector: use sctp_auth_create_key · 03536e23
      Daniel Borkmann authored
      In sctp_auth_make_key_vector, we allocate a temporary sctp_auth_bytes
      structure with kmalloc instead of the sctp_auth_create_key allocator.
      Change this to sctp_auth_create_key as it is the case everywhere else,
      so that we also can properly free it via sctp_auth_key_put. This makes
      it easier for future code changes in the structure and allocator itself,
      since a single API is consistently used for this purpose. Also, by
      using sctp_auth_create_key we're doing sanity checks over the arguments.

      macvlan: add a salt to mc_hash() · 3807ff58
      Eric Dumazet authored
      Some multicast addresses are common to all macvlans,
      so if a multicast message has a hash value collision, we
      have to deliver a copy to all macvlans, adding significant
      latency and possible packet drops if netdev_max_backlog
      limit is hit.
      Having a per macvlan hash function permits to reduce the
      impact of hash collisions.

      Linus Torvalds authored
      Pull ARM fixes from Russell King:
       "I was going to hold these off until v3.8 was out, and send them with a
        stable tag, but as everyone else is pushing much bigger fixes which
        Linus is accepting, let's save people from the hastle of having to
        patch v3.8 back into working or use a stable kernel.
        Looking at the diffstat, this really is high value for its size; this
        is miniscule compared to how the -rc6 to tip diffstat currently looks.
        So, four patches in this set:
         - Punit Agrawal reports that the kernel no longer boots on MPCore due
           to a new assumption made in the GIC code which isn't true of
           earlier GIC designs.  This is the biggest change in this set.
         - Punit's boot log also revealed a bunch of WARN_ON() dumps caused by
           the DT-ification of the GIC support without fixing up non-DT
           Realview - which now sees a greater number of interrupts than it
           did before.
         - A fix for the DMA coherent code from Marek which uses the wrong
           check for atomic allocations; this can result in spinlock lockups
           or other nasty effects.
         - A fix from Will, which will affect all Android based platforms if
           not applied (which use the 2G:2G VM split) - this causes
           particularly 'make' to misbehave unless this bug is fixed."
      * 'fixes' of git://git.linaro.org/people/rmk/linux-arm:
        ARM: 7641/1: memory: fix broken mmap by ensuring TASK_UNMAPPED_BASE is aligned
        ARM: DMA mapping: fix bad atomic test
        ARM: realview: ensure that we have sufficient IRQs available

       7) Don't leak socket reference counts and ubufs in vhost-net driver,
          from Jason Wang.
       8) vmxnet3 driver gets it's initial carrier state wrong, fix from Neil
       9) Protect against USB networking devices which spam the host with 0
          length frames, from Bjørn Mork.
      10) Prevent neighbour overflows in ipv6 for locally destined routes,
          from Marcelo Ricardo.  This is the best short-term fix for this, a
          longer term fix has been implemented in net-next.
      11) L2TP uses ipv4 datagram routines in it's ipv6 code, whoops.  This
          mistake is largely because the ipv6 functions don't even have some
          kind of prefix in their names to suggest they are ipv6 specific.
          From Tom Parkin.
      12) Check SYN packet drops properly in tcp_rcv_fastopen_synack(), from
          Yuchung Cheng.
      13) Fix races and TX skb freeing bugs in via-rhine's NAPI support, from
          Francois Romieu and your's truly.
      14) Fix infinite loops and divides by zero in TCP congestion window
          handling, from Eric Dumazet, Neal Cardwell, and Ilpo Järvinen.
      15) AF_PACKET tx ring handling can leak kernel memory to userspace, fix
          from Phil Sutter.
      16) Fix error handling in ipv6 GRE tunnel transmit, from Tommi Rantala.
      17) Protect XEN netback driver against hostile frontend putting garbage
          into the rings, don't leak pages in TX GOP checking, and add proper
          resource releasing in error path of xen_netbk_get_requests().  From
          Ian Campbell.
      18) SCTP authentication keys should be cleared out and released with
          kzfree(), from Daniel Borkmann.
      19) L2TP is a bit too clever trying to maintain skb->truesize, and ends
          up corrupting socket memory accounting to the point where packet
          sending is halted indefinitely.  Just remove the adjustments
          entirely, they aren't really needed.  From Eric Dumazet.
      20) ATM Iphase driver uses a data type with the same name as the S390
          headers, rename to fix the build.  From Heiko Carstens.
      21) Fix a typo in copying the inner network header offset from one SKB
          to another, from Pravin B Shelar.

      Please accept this pull request intended for the 3.9 stream!
      Included are a mac80211 pull, an iwlwifi pull (actually two -- one
      was a fast-forward), a wl12xx pull, and a couple of Bluetooth pulls.
      On mac80211, Johannes says:
      "I've included
       * AKM definitions from Bing,
       * mesh fixes from Thomas, including a fix from him for me breaking his

       * an old patch from Yoni Divinsky who doesn't even work for TI any
         more, to configure the WEP TX key for ARP offload etc.
       * MAC ACL API from Vasanth
       * a fix for the infamous chanctx_conf warning from Arnd
       * from myself, a fix for my previous aggregation changes, some cleanup
         and some improvements and fixes for WoWLAN"
      On iwlwifi, Johannes says:
      "Two small changes for iwlwifi-next, one to update all our Copyright
      notices and one to provide the RX page order."
      And also:
      "So what I have here is some cleanups, preparations and the new MVM
      (multi-virtual MAC) driver itself and (this is new) some work on the
      transport API as well as a message flooding fix."
      On wl12xx, Luca says:
      "Lots of bugfixes and improvements in our TI wireless drivers,
      including support for multi-channel.  Intended for 3.9."
      On Bluetooth, Gustavo says:
      "This is my first pull request to 3.9. The biggest changes here are from Johan
      Hedberg who made a lot of fixes in the Management interface. The issues arose
      due to a new test tool we wrote and the usage of the Management interface as
      default in BlueZ 5. The rest of the patches are more clean ups and small
      And also:
      "Here goes another batch intended for 3.9, the majority of the patch here are
      from Johan who is fixing many issues in the management interface that have
      appeared lately. The rest of the patches are just small improvements, fixes
      and clean ups."
      Along with those are the usual variety of updates/enhancements to
      the mwl8k, mwifiex, ath9k, rtlwifi, and rt2x00 drivers as well as
      a few updates for the ssb and bcma busses.  I don't think there are
      any big headliners there.
      Please let me know if there are problems!
