      SCTP: fix race between sctp_bind_addr_free() and sctp_bind_addr_conflict() · c182f90b
      Jacek Luczak authored
      During the sctp_close() call, we do not use rcu primitives to
      destroy the address list attached to the endpoint.  At the same
      time, we do the removal of addresses from this list before
      attempting to remove the socket from the port hash
      As a result, it is possible for another process to find the socket
      in the port hash that is in the process of being closed.  It then
      proceeds to traverse the address list to find the conflict, only
      to have that address list suddenly disappear without rcu() critical
      Fix issue by closing address list removal inside RCU critical
      Race can result in a kernel crash with general protection fault or
      kernel NULL pointer dereference:

      include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking... · 5a0e3ad6

      include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h
      percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being
      included when building most .c files.  percpu.h includes slab.h which
      in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files
      universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies.
      percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed.  Prepare for
      this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those
      headers directly instead of assuming availability.  As this conversion
      needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is
      used as the basis of conversion.
      The script does the followings.
      * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that
        only the necessary includes are there.  ie. if only gfp is used,
        gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h.
      * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include
        blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms
        to its surrounding.  It's put in the include block which contains
        core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered -
        alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there
        doesn't seem to be any matching order.
      * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly
        because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out
        an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the
      The conversion was done in the following steps.
      1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly
         over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h
         and ~3000 slab.h inclusions.  The script emitted errors for ~400
      2. Each error was manually checked.  Some didn't need the inclusion,
         some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or
         embedding .c file was more appropriate for others.  This step added
         inclusions to around 150 files.
      3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits
         from #2 to make sure no file was left behind.
      4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed.
         e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab
         APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually.
      5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically
         editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h
         files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell.  Most gfp.h
         inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually
         wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros.  Each
         slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as
      6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h.
      7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures
         were fixed.  CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my
         distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few
         more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things
         build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq).
         * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config.
         * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * ia64 SMP allmodconfig
         * s390 SMP allmodconfig
         * alpha SMP allmodconfig
         * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig
      8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as
         a separate patch and serve as bisection point.
      Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step
      6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch.
      If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch
      headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of
      the specific arch.

      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

      [PATCH] remove many unneeded #includes of sched.h · cd354f1a
      Tim Schmielau authored
      After Al Viro (finally) succeeded in removing the sched.h #include in module.h
      recently, it makes sense again to remove other superfluous sched.h includes.
      There are quite a lot of files which include it but don't actually need
      anything defined in there.  Presumably these includes were once needed for
      macros that used to live in sched.h, but moved to other header files in the
      course of cleaning it up.
      To ease the pain, this time I did not fiddle with any header files and only
      removed #includes from .c-files, which tend to cause less trouble.
      Compile tested against 2.6.20-rc2 and 2.6.20-rc2-mm2 (with offsets) on alpha,
      arm, i386, ia64, mips, powerpc, and x86_64 with allnoconfig, defconfig,
      allmodconfig, and allyesconfig as well as a few randconfigs on x86_64 and all
      configs in arch/arm/configs on arm.  I also checked that no new warnings were
      introduced by the patch (actually, some warnings are removed that were emitted
      by unnecessarily included header files).

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      Let it rip!
