      sctp: Fix a race between ICMP protocol unreachable and connect() · 50b5d6ad
      Vlad Yasevich authored
      ICMP protocol unreachable handling completely disregarded
      the fact that the user may have locked the socket.  It proceeded
      to destroy the association, even though the user may have
      held the lock and had a ref on the association.  This resulted
      in the following:
      Attempt to release alive inet socket f6afcc00
      [ BUG: held lock freed! ]

      This was because the sctp_wait_for_connect() would aqcure the socket
      lock and then proceed to release the last reference count on the
      association, thus cause the fully destruction path to finish freeing
      the socket.
      The simplest solution is to start a very short timer in case the socket
      is owned by user.  When the timer expires, we can do some verification
      and be able to do the release properly.

      veth: Dont kfree_skb() after dev_forward_skb() · 6ec82562
      Eric Dumazet authored
      In case of congestion, netif_rx() frees the skb, so we must assume
      dev_forward_skb() also consume skb.
      Bug introduced by commit 44540960
      (veth: move loopback logic to common location)
      We must change dev_forward_skb() to always consume skb, and veth to not
      double free it.

      IPv6: fix IPV6_RECVERR handling of locally-generated errors · d40a4de0
      Brian Haley authored
      I noticed when I added support for IPV6_DONTFRAG that if you set
      IPV6_RECVERR and tried to send a UDP packet larger than 64K to an
      IPv6 destination, you'd correctly get an EMSGSIZE, but reading from
      MSG_ERRQUEUE returned the incorrect address in the cmsg:
      struct msghdr:
      	 msg_name         0x7fff8f3c96d0
      	 msg_namelen      28
      struct sockaddr_in6:
      	 sin6_family      10
      	 sin6_port        7639
      	 sin6_flowinfo    0
      	 sin6_addr        ::ffff:
      	 sin6_scope_id    0  ((null))
      It should have returned this in my case:
      struct msghdr:
      	 msg_name         0x7fffd866b510
      	 msg_namelen      28
      struct sockaddr_in6:
      	 sin6_family      10
      	 sin6_port        7639
      	 sin6_flowinfo    0
      	 sin6_addr        2620:0:a09:e000:21f:29ff:fe57:f88b
      	 sin6_scope_id    0  ((null))
      The problem is that ipv6_recv_error() assumes that if the error
      wasn't generated by ICMPv6, it's an IPv4 address sitting there,
      and proceeds to create a v4-mapped address from it.
      Change ipv6_icmp_error() and ipv6_local_error() to set skb->protocol
      to htons(ETH_P_IPV6) so that ipv6_recv_error() knows the address
      sitting right after the extended error is IPv6, else it will
      incorrectly map the first octet into an IPv4-mapped IPv6 address
      in the cmsg structure returned in a recvmsg() call to obtain
      the error.

      net/gianfar: drop recycled skbs on MTU change · 7df9c43f
      Sebastian Andrzej Siewior authored
      The size for skbs which is added to the recycled list is using the
      current descriptor size which is current MTU. gfar_new_skb() is also
      using this size. So after changing or alteast increasing the MTU all
      recycled skbs should be dropped.

      mdiobus_register() calls device_register() which initializes the kobj of
      the device. mdiobus_unregister() calls only device_del() so we have one
      reference left. That one is leaving with mdiobus_free() which is only
      called on remove.
      Since I don't see any reason why mdiobus_register()/mdiobus_unregister()
      should happen in ->open()/->close() I move them to probe & exit.

      Its an skb_over_panic BUG halt that results from processing an init chunk in
      which too many of its variable length parameters are in some way malformed.
      The problem is in sctp_process_unk_param:
      if (NULL == *errp)
      	*errp = sctp_make_op_error_space(asoc, chunk,
      	if (*errp) {
      		sctp_init_cause(*errp, SCTP_ERROR_UNKNOWN_PARAM,
      When we allocate an error chunk, we assume that the worst case scenario requires
      that we have chunk_hdr->length data allocated, which would be correct nominally,
      given that we call sctp_addto_chunk for the violating parameter.  Unfortunately,
      we also, in sctp_init_cause insert a sctp_errhdr_t structure into the error
      chunk, so the worst case situation in which all parameters are in violation
      requires chunk_hdr->length+(sizeof(sctp_errhdr_t)*param_count) bytes of data.
      The result of this error is that a deliberately malformed packet sent to a
      listening host can cause a remote DOS, described in CVE-2010-1173:
      I've tested the below fix and confirmed that it fixes the issue.  We move to a
      strategy whereby we allocate a fixed size error chunk and ignore errors we don't
      have space to report.  Tested by me successfully

      Vlad Yasevich authored
      When sctp attempts to update an assocition, it removes any
      addresses that were not in the updated INITs.  However, the loop
      may attempt to refrence a transport with address after removing it.

      sctp: avoid irq lock inversion while call sk->sk_data_ready() · 561b1733
      Wei Yongjun authored
      sk->sk_data_ready() of sctp socket can be called from both BH and non-BH
      contexts, but the default sk->sk_data_ready(), sock_def_readable(), can
      not be used in this case. Therefore, we have to make a new function
      sctp_data_ready() to grab sk->sk_data_ready() with BH disabling.
      [ INFO: possible irq lock inversion dependency detected ]
      2.6.33-rc6 #129
      sctp_darn/1517 just changed the state of lock:
       (clock-AF_INET){++.?..}, at: [<c06aab60>] sock_def_readable+0x20/0x80
      but this lock took another, SOFTIRQ-unsafe lock in the past:
      and interrupts could create inverse lock ordering between them.
      other info that might help us debug this:
      1 lock held by sctp_darn/1517:

      Revert "tcp: bind() fix when many ports are bound" · 8d238b25
      David S. Miller authored
      This reverts two commits:
      tcp: bind() fix when many ports are bound
      and a follow-on fix for it:
      ipv6: Fix inet6_csk_bind_conflict()
      It causes problems with binding listening sockets when time-wait
      sockets from a previous instance still are alive.
      It's too late to keep fiddling with this so late in the -rc
      series, and we'll deal with it in net-next-2.6 instead.

      net/usb: add sierra_net.c driver · eb4fd8cd
      Elina Pasheva authored
      Re-submitted based on comments from netdev community.
      Summary of the changes:
      1. Improved error handling.
      2. Added the missing timeout arguments to usb_control_msg().
      The following is a new Linux driver which exposes certain models of Sierra
      Wireless modems to the operating system as Network Interface Cards (NICs).
      This driver requires a version of the sierra.c driver which supports
      blacklisting to work properly. The blacklist in sierra.c rejects the interfaces
      claimed by sierra_net.c. Likewise, the sierra_net.c driver only accepts
      (i.e. whitelists) the interface(s) used for USB-to-WWAN traffic.
      The version of sierra.c which supports blacklisting is
      available from the sierra wireless knowledge base page for older kernels. It is
      also available in Linux kernel starting from version 2.6.31.
      This driver works with all Sierra Wireless devices configured with PID=68A3
      like USB305, USB306 provided the corresponding firmware version is I2.0
      (for USB305) or M3.0 (for USB306) and later.
      This driver will not work with earlier firmware versions than the ones shown
      above. In this case the driver will issue an error message indicating
      incompatibility and will not serve the device's USB-to-WWAN interface.
      Sierra_net.c sits atop a pre-existing Linux driver called usbnet.c.
      A series of hook functions are provided in sierra_net.c which are called by
      usbnet.c in response to a particular condition such as receipt or transmission
      of a data packet. As such, usbnet.c does most of the work of making
      a modem appear to the system as a network device and for properly exchanging
      traffic between the USB subsystem and the Network card interface.
      Sierra_net.c is concerned with managing the data exchanged between the
      USB-to-WWAN interface and the upper layers of the operating system.
