      net: Fix possible wrong checksum generation. · c9af6db4
      Pravin B Shelar authored
      Patch cef401de
      
       (net: fix possible wrong checksum
      generation) fixed wrong checksum calculation but it broke TSO by
      defining new GSO type but not a netdev feature for that type.
      net_gso_ok() would not allow hardware checksum/segmentation
      offload of such packets without the feature.
      
      Following patch fixes TSO and wrong checksum. This patch uses
      same logic that Eric Dumazet used. Patch introduces new flag
      SKBTX_SHARED_FRAG if at least one frag can be modified by
      the user. but SKBTX_SHARED_FRAG flag is kept in skb shared
      info tx_flags rather than gso_type.
      
      tx_flags is better compared to gso_type since we can have skb with
      shared frag without gso packet. It does not link SHARED_FRAG to
      GSO, So there is no need to define netdev feature for this.

      ====================
      If a TCP socket will get live-migrated from one box to another the
      timestamps (which are typically ON) will get screwed up -- the new
      kernel will generate TS values that has nothing to do with what they
      were on dump. The solution is to yet again fix the kernel and put a
      "timestamp offset" on a socket.
      
      A socket offset is added in places where externally visible tcp
      timestamp option is parsed/initialized.
      
      Connections in the SYN_RECV state are not supported, global
      tcp_time_stamp is used for them, because repair mode doesn't support
      this state. In a future it can be implemented by the similar way as for
      TIME_WAIT sockets.
      
      For time-wait sockets offset is inhereted by a proper tcp_sock.
      
      A per-socket offset can be set only for sockets in repair mode.

      tcp: adding a per-socket timestamp offset · ceaa1fef
      Andrey Vagin authored
      
      
      This functionality is used for restoring tcp sockets. A tcp timestamp
      depends on how long a system has been running, so it's differ for each
      host. The solution is to set a per-socket offset.
      
      A per-socket offset for a TIME_WAIT socket is inherited from a proper
      tcp socket.
      
      tcp_request_sock doesn't have a timestamp offset, because the repair
      mode for them are not implemented.

      ====================
      Eric noticed that the handling of local u64 ethtool counters for
      this driver commonly found on Freescale ppc-32 boards was racy.
      
      However, before converting them over to atomic64_t, I noticed
      that an internal struct was being used to determine the offsets
      for exporting this data into the ethtool buffer, and in doing
      so, it assumed that the counters would always be u64.  Rather
      than keep this implicit assumption, a simple code cleanup gets
      rid of the struct completely, and leaves less conversion sites.
      
      The alternative solution would have been to take advantage of
      the fact that the counters are all relating to error conditions,
      and hence make them internally u32.  In doing so, we'd be assuming
      that U32_MAX of any particular error condition is highly unlikely.
      This might have made sense if any increments were in a hot path.
      
      Tested with "ethtool -S eth0" on sbc8548 board.

      netpoll: fix smatch warnings in netpoll core code · 959d5fde
      Neil Horman authored
      
      
      Dan Carpenter contacted me with some notes regarding some smatch warnings in the
      netpoll code, some of which I introduced with my recent netpoll locking fixes,
      some which were there prior.   Specifically they were:
      
      net-next/net/core/netpoll.c:243 netpoll_poll_dev() warn: inconsistent
        returns mutex:&ni->dev_lock: locked (213,217) unlocked (210,243)
      net-next/net/core/netpoll.c:706 netpoll_neigh_reply() warn: potential
        pointer math issue ('skb_transport_header(send_skb)' is a 128 bit pointer)
      
      This patch corrects the locking imbalance (the first error), and adds some
      parenthesis to correct the second error.  Tested by myself. Applies to net-next

      net: skbuff: fix compile error in skb_panic() · 99d5851e
      James Hogan authored
      I get the following build error on next-20130213 due to the following
      commit:
      
      commit f05de73b
      
       ("skbuff: create
      skb_panic() function and its wrappers").
      
      It adds an argument called panic to a function that uses the BUG() macro
      which tries to call panic, but the argument masks the panic() function
      declaration, resulting in the following error (gcc 4.2.4):
      
      net/core/skbuff.c In function 'skb_panic':
      net/core/skbuff.c +126 : error: called object 'panic' is not a function
      
      This is fixed by renaming the argument to msg.

      gianfar: convert u64 status counters to atomic64_t · 212079df
      Paul Gortmaker authored
      
      
      While looking at some asm dump for an unrelated change, Eric
      noticed in the following stats count increment code:
      
          50b8:       81 3c 01 f8     lwz     r9,504(r28)
          50bc:       81 5c 01 fc     lwz     r10,508(r28)
          50c0:       31 4a 00 01     addic   r10,r10,1
          50c4:       7d 29 01 94     addze   r9,r9
          50c8:       91 3c 01 f8     stw     r9,504(r28)
          50cc:       91 5c 01 fc     stw     r10,508(r28)
      
      that a 64 bit counter was used on ppc-32 without sync
      and hence the "ethtool -S" output was racy.
      
      Here we convert all the values to use atomic64_t so that
      the output will always be consistent.

      gianfar: remove largely unused gfar_stats struct · 68719786
      Paul Gortmaker authored
      
      
      The gfar_stats struct is only used in copying out data
      via ethtool.  It is declared as the extra stats, followed
      by the rmon stats.  However, the rmon stats are never
      actually ever used in the driver; instead the rmon data
      is a u32 register read that is cast directly into the
      ethtool buf.
      
      It seems the only reason rmon is in the struct at all is
      to give the offset(s) at which it should be exported into
      the ethtool buffer.  But note gfar_stats doesn't contain
      a gfar_extra_stats as a substruct -- instead it contains
      a u64 array of equal element count.  This implicitly means
      we have two independent declarations of what gfar_extra_stats
      really is.  Rather than have this duality, we already have
      defines which give us the offset directly, and hence do not
      need the struct at all.
      
      Further, since we know the extra_stats is unconditionally
      always present, we can write it out to the ethtool buf
      1st, and then optionally write out the rmon data.  There
      is no need for two independent loops, both of which are
      simply copying out the extra_stats to buf offset zero.
      
      This also helps pave the way towards allowing the extra
      stats fields to be converted to atomic64_t values, without
      having their types directly influencing the ethtool stats
      export code (gfar_fill_stats) that expects to deal with u64.

      mwl8k: fix band for supported channels · d786f67e
      Jonas Gorski authored
      
      
      The band field for the supported channels were left unpopulated, making
      them default to 0 == IEEE80211_BAND_2GHZ, even for the 5GHz channels.
      
      This resulted in null pointer accesses if anything tries to access
      wiphy->bands[channel->band] of a 5GHz channel on 5GHz only cards, since
      wiphy->bands[2GHZ] is NULL for them (e.g. cfg80211_chandef_usable does).
