      ipv4: force_igmp_version ignored when a IGMPv3 query received · 79981563
      Bob Arendt authored
      After all these years, it turns out that the
      parameter isn't fully implemented.
      When set force_igmp_version to a value of 2, the kernel should only perform
      multicast IGMPv2 operations (IETF rfc2236).  An host-initiated Join message
      will be sent as a IGMPv2 Join message.  But if a IGMPv3 query message is
      received, the host responds with a IGMPv3 join message.  Per rfc3376 and
      rfc2236, a IGMPv2 host should treat a IGMPv3 query as a IGMPv2 query and
      respond with an IGMPv2 Join message.
      This is an issue when a IGMPv3 capable switch is the querier and will only
      issue IGMPv3 queries (which double as IGMPv2 querys) and there's an
      intermediate switch that is only IGMPv2 capable.  The intermediate switch
      processes the initial v2 Join, but fails to recognize the IGMPv3 Join responses
      to the Query, resulting in a dropped connection when the intermediate v2-only
      switch times it out.
      *Identifying issue in the kernel source*:
      The issue is in this section of code (in net/ipv4/igmp.c), which is called when
      an IGMP query is received  (from mainline 2.6.36-rc3 gitweb):
      A IGMPv3 query has a length >= 12 and no sources.  This routine will exit after
      line 880, setting the general query timer (random timeout between 0 and query
      response time).  This calls igmp_gq_timer_expire():
      .. which only sends a v3 response.  So if a v3 query is received, the kernel
      always sends a v3 response.
      IGMP queries happen once every 60 sec (per vlan), so the traffic is low.  A
      IGMPv3 query *is* a strict superset of a IGMPv2 query, so this patch properly
      short circuit's the v3 behaviour.
      One issue is that this does not address force_igmp_version=1.  Then again, I've
      never seen any IGMPv1 multicast equipment in the wild.  However there is a lot
      of v2-only equipment. If it's necessary to support the IGMPv1 case as well:
      837         if (len == 8 || IGMP_V2_SEEN(in_dev) || IGMP_V1_SEEN(in_dev)) {

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

      inet: Remove bogus IGMPv3 report handling · c6b471e6
      Herbert Xu authored
      Currently we treat IGMPv3 reports as if it were an IGMPv2/v1 report.
      This is broken as IGMPv3 reports are formatted differently.  So we
      end up suppressing a bogus multicast group (which should be harmless
      as long as the leading reserved field is zero).
      In fact, IGMPv3 does not allow membership report suppression so
      we should simply ignore IGMPv3 membership reports as a host.
      This patch does exactly that.  I kept the case statement for it
      so people won't accidentally add it back thinking that we overlooked
      this case.

      bonding: remap muticast addresses without using dev_close() and dev_open() · 75c78500
      Moni Shoua authored
      This patch fixes commit e36b9d16
      . The approach
      there is to call dev_close()/dev_open() whenever the device type is changed in
      order to remap the device IP multicast addresses to HW multicast addresses.
      This approach suffers from 2 drawbacks:
      *. It assumes tha the device is UP when calling dev_close(), or otherwise
         dev_close() has no affect. It is worth to mention that initscripts (Redhat)
         and sysconfig (Suse) doesn't act the same in this matter. 
      *. dev_close() has other side affects, like deleting entries from the routing
         table, which might be unnecessary.
      The fix here is to directly remap the IP multicast addresses to HW multicast
      addresses for a bonding device that changes its type, and nothing else.

      ipv4: New multicast-all socket option · f771bef9
      Nivedita Singhvi authored
      After some discussion offline with Christoph Lameter and David Stevens
      regarding multicast behaviour in Linux, I'm submitting a slightly
      modified patch from the one Christoph submitted earlier.
      This patch provides a new socket option IP_MULTICAST_ALL.
      In this case, default behaviour is _unchanged_ from the current
      Linux standard. The socket option is set by default to provide
      original behaviour. Sockets wishing to receive data only from
      multicast groups they join explicitly will need to clear this
      socket option.

      netns: Fix crash by making igmp per namespace · 877acedc
      Daniel Lezcano authored
      This patch makes the multicast socket to be per namespace.
      When a network namespace is created, other than the init_net and a
      multicast packet is received, the kernel goes to a hang or a kernel panic.
      How to reproduce ?
       * create a child network namespace
       * create a pair virtual device veth
          * ip link add type veth
       * move one side to the pair network device to the child namespace
          * ip link set netns <childpid> dev veth1
       * ping -I veth0
      The bug appears because the function ip_mc_init_dev does not initialize
      the different multicast fields as it exits because it is not the init_net.
