      Pull networking fixes from David Miller:
       1) IPVS oops'ers:
         a) Should not reset skb->nf_bridge in forwarding hook (Lin Ming)
         b) 3.4 commit can cause ip_vs_control_cleanup to be invoked after
            the ipvs_core_ops are unregistered during rmmod (Julian ANastasov)
       2) ixgbevf bringup failure can crash in TX descriptor cleanup
          (Alexander Duyck)
       3) AX25 switch missing break statement hoses ROSE sockets (Alan Cox)
       4) CAIF accesses freed per-net memory (Sjur Brandeland)
       5) Network cgroup code has out-or-bounds accesses (Eric DUmazet), and
          accesses freed memory (Gao Feng)
       6) Fix a crash in SCTP reported by Dave Jones caused by freeing an
          association still on a list (Neil HOrman)
       7) __netdev_alloc_skb() regresses on GFP_DMA using drivers because that
          GFP flag is not being retained for the allocation (Eric Dumazet).
       8) Missing NULL hceck in sch_sfb netlink message parsing (Alan Cox)
       9) bnx2 crashes because TX index iteration is not bounded correctly
          (Michael Chan)
      10) IPoIB generates warnings in TCP queue collapsing (via
          skb_try_coalesce) because it does not set skb->truesize correctly
          (Eric Dumazet)
      11) vlan_info objects leak for the implicit vlan with ID 0 (Amir
      12) A fix for TX time stamp handling in gianfar does not transfer socket
          ownership from one packet to another correctly, resulting in a
          socket write space imbalance (Eric Dumazet)
      13) Julia Lawall found several cases where we do a list iteration, and
          then at the loop termination unconditionally assume we ended up with
          real list object, rather than the list head itself (CNIC, RXRPC,
      14) The bonding driver handles procfs moving incorrectly when a device
          it manages is moved from one namespace to another (Eric Biederman)
      15) Missing memory barriers in stmmac descriptor accesses result in
          various crashes (Deepak Sikri)
      16) Fix handling of broadcast packets in batman-adv (Simon Wunderlich)
      17) Properly check the sanity of sendmsg() lengths in ieee802154's
          dgram_sendmsg().  Dave Jones and others have hit and reported this
          bug (Sasha Levin)
      18) Some drivers (b44 and b43legacy) on 64-bit machines stopped working
          because of how netdev_alloc_skb() was adjusted.  Such drivers should
          now use alloc_skb() for obtaining bounce buffers.  (Eric Dumazet)
      19) atl1c mis-managed it's link state in that it stops the queue by hand
          on link down.  The generic networking takes care of that and this
          double stop locks the queue down.  So simply removing the driver's
          queue stop call fixes the problem (Cloud Ren)
      20) Fix out-of-memory due to mis-accounting in net_em packet scheduler
          (Eric Dumazet)
      21) If DCB and SR-IOV are configured at the same time in IXGBE the chip
          will hang because this is not supported (Alexander Duyck)
      22) A commit to stop drivers using netdev->base_addr broke the CNIC
          driver (Michael Chan)
      23) Timeout regression in ipset caused by an attempt to fix an overflow
          bug (Jozsef Kadlecsik).
      24) mac80211 minstrel code allocates memory using incorrect size
          (Thomas Huehn)
      25) llcp_sock_getname() needs to check for a NULL device otherwise we
          OOPS (Sasha Levin)
      26) mwifiex leaks memory (Bing Zhao)
      27) Propagate iwlwifi fix to iwlegacy, even when we're not associated
          we need to monitor for stuck queues in the watchdog handler
          (Stanislaw Geuszka)

      Pablo Neira Ayuso says:
      I know that we're in fairly late stage to request pulls, but the IPVS people
      pinged me with little patches with oops fixes last week.
      One of them was recently introduced (during the 3.4 development cycle) while
      cleaning up the IPVS netns support. They are:
      * Fix one regression introduced in 3.4 while cleaning up the
        netns support for IPVS, from Julian Anastasov.
      * Fix one oops triggered due to resetting the conntrack attached to the skb
        instead of just putting it in the forward hook, from Lin Ming. This problem
        seems to be there since 2.6.37 according to Simon Horman.

      Federico Fuga authored
      When rpmsg drivers are built into the kernel, they must not initialize
      before the rpmsg bus does, otherwise they'd trigger a BUG() in
      drivers/base/driver.c line 169 (driver_register()).
      To fix that, and to stop depending on arbitrary linkage ordering of
      those built-in rpmsg drivers, we make the rpmsg bus initialize at

      ipvs: fix oops in ip_vs_dst_event on rmmod · 283283c4
      Julian Anastasov authored
      	After commit 39f618b4
      "ipvs: reset ipvs pointer in netns" we can oops in
      ip_vs_dst_event on rmmod ip_vs because ip_vs_control_cleanup
      is called after the ipvs_core_ops subsys is unregistered and
      net->ipvs is NULL. Fix it by exiting early from ip_vs_dst_event
      if ipvs is NULL. It is safe because all services and dests
      for the net are already freed.

      The steps to reproduce as follow,
      1. On Host1, setup brige br0(
      2. Boot a kvm guest( on Host1 and start httpd
      3. Start IPVS service on Host1
         ipvsadm -A -t -s rr
         ipvsadm -a -t -r -m
      4. Run apache benchmark on Host2(
         ab -n 1000
                skb->nf_bridge = NULL;
      Actually, IPVS wants in this case just to replace nfct
      with untracked version. So replace the nf_reset(skb) call
      in ip_vs_notrack() with a nf_conntrack_put(skb->nfct) call.

      that dev->priomap is null or array size of dev->priomap.priomap
      is equal to max_prioidx + 1;
      so in write_priomap logic,we should call extend_netdev_table when
      dev->priomap is null and dev->priomap.priomap_len < max_len.
      and in cgrp_create->update_netdev_tables logic,we should call
      extend_netdev_table only when dev->priomap exist and
      dev->priomap.priomap_len < max_len.
      and it's not needed to call update_netdev_tables in write_priomap,
      we can only allocate the net device's priomap which we change through
      this patch also add a return value for update_netdev_tables &
      extend_netdev_table, so when new_priomap is allocated failed,
      write_priomap will stop to access the priomap,and return -ENOMEM
      back to the userspace to tell the user what happend.
      Change From v3:
      1. add rtnl protect when reading max_prioidx in write_priomap.
      2. only call extend_netdev_table when map->priomap_len < max_len,
         this will make sure array size of dev->map->priomap always
         bigger than any prioidx.
      3. add a function write_update_netdev_table to make codes clear.
      Change From v2:
      1. protect extend_netdev_table by RTNL.
      2. when extend_netdev_table failed,call dev_put to reduce device's refcount.

      The commit 4197aa7b
       implements 64 bit
      per ring statistics. But the driver resets the 'total_bytes' and
      'total_packets' from RX and TX rings in the RX and TX interrupt
      handlers to zero. This results in statistics being lost and user space
      reporting RX and TX statistics as zero. This patch addresses the
      issue by preventing the resetting of RX and TX ring statistics to

      [22766.601221] Kernel panic - not syncing: Fatal exception in interrupt
      It appears from his analysis and some staring at the code that this is likely
      occuring because an association is getting freed while still on the
      sctp_assoc_hashtable.  As a result, we get a gpf when traversing the hashtable
      while a freed node corrupts part of the list.
      Nominally I would think that an mibalanced refcount was responsible for this,
      but I can't seem to find any obvious imbalance.  What I did note however was
      that the two places where we create an association using
      sctp_primitive_ASSOCIATE (__sctp_connect and sctp_sendmsg), have failure paths
      which free a newly created association after calling sctp_primitive_ASSOCIATE.
      sctp_primitive_ASSOCIATE brings us into the sctp_sf_do_prm_asoc path, which
      issues a SCTP_CMD_NEW_ASOC side effect, which in turn adds a new association to
      the aforementioned hash table.  the sctp command interpreter that process side
      effects has not way to unwind previously processed commands, so freeing the
      association from the __sctp_connect or sctp_sendmsg error path would lead to a
      freed association remaining on this hash table.
      I've fixed this but modifying sctp_[un]hash_established to use hlist_del_init,
      which allows us to proerly use hlist_unhashed to check if the node is on a
      hashlist safely during a delete.  That in turn alows us to safely call
      sctp_unhash_established in the __sctp_connect and sctp_sendmsg error paths
      before freeing them, regardles of what the associations state is on the hash
      I noted, while I was doing this, that the __sctp_unhash_endpoint was using
      hlist_unhsashed in a simmilar fashion, but never nullified any removed nodes
      pointers to make that function work properly, so I fixed that up in a simmilar
      I attempted to test this using a virtual guest running the SCTP_RR test from
      netperf in a loop while running the trinity fuzzer, both in a loop.  I wasn't
      able to recreate the problem prior to this fix, nor was I able to trigger the
      failure after (neither of which I suppose is suprising).  Given the trace above
      however, I think its likely that this is what we hit.
