constituent interfaces in the bridge.

Unfortunately the operation that adds the mp->mglist node to the

leads to list corruption in the form of nodes pointing to itself.

Normally this would be quite obvious as it would cause an infinite

walked (which means that we don't really need it, I'll get rid of
it in a subsequent patch), this instead is hidden until we perform
a delete operation on the affected nodes.

As the same node may now be pointed to by more than one node, the
delete operations can then cause modification of freed memory.

This was observed in practice to cause corruption in 512-byte slabs,
most commonly leading to crashes in jbd2.

netfilter: nf_conntrack: set conntrack templates again if we return NF_REPEAT

The TCP tracking code has a special case that allows to return
NF_REPEAT if we receive a new SYN packet while in TIME_WAIT state.

In this situation, the TCP tracking code destroys the existing

etc.).  It may, however, make state changes that are undone by
free_netdev() (such as netif_napi_add(), which is done by the

11 years agoniu: Fix races between up/down and get_stats.
David S. Miller [Fri, 4 Feb 2011 00:12:50 +0000 (16:12 -0800)]
niu: Fix races between up/down and get_stats.

As reported by Flavio Leitner, there is no synchronization to protect
NIU's get_stats method from seeing a NULL pointer in either
np->rx_rings or np->tx_rings.  In fact, as far as ->ndo_get_stats
is concerned, these values are set completely asynchronously.

Flavio attempted to fix this using a RW semaphore, which in fact
works most of the time.  However, dev_get_stats() can be invoked
from non-sleepable contexts in some cases, so this fix doesn't
work in all cases.

So instead, control the visibility of the np->{rx,tx}_ring pointers
when the device is being brough up, and use properties of the device
down sequence to our advantage.

In niu_get_stats(), return immediately if netif_running() is false.
The device shutdown sequence first marks the device as not running (by
clearing the __LINK_STATE_START bit), then it performans a
synchronize_rcu() (in dev_deactive_many()), and then finally it
invokes the driver ->ndo_stop() method.

This guarentees that all invocations of niu_get_stats() either see
netif_running() as false, or they see the channel pointers before
->ndo_stop() clears them out.

If netif_running() is true, protect against startup races by loading
the np->{rx,tx}_rings pointer into a local variable, and punting if
it is NULL.  Use ACCESS_ONCE to prevent the compiler from reloading
the pointer on us.

Also, during open, control the order in which the pointers and the
ring counts become visible globally using SMP write memory barriers.
We make sure the np->num_{rx,tx}_rings value is stable and visible
before np->{rx,tx}_rings is.

Such visibility control is not necessary on the niu_free_channels()
side because of the RCU sequencing that happens during device down as
described above.  We are always guarenteed that all niu_get_stats
calls are finished, or will see netif_running() false, by the time
->ndo_stop is invoked.

The event delivered looks like the following:

 [UPDATE] tcp      6 src= dst= sport=37041 dport=80 src= dst= sport=80 dport=37041 [ASSURED]

Note that the TCP protocol state is not included. For that reason
the CT event filtering is not very useful for conntrackd.

To resolve this issue, instead of conditionally setting the CT events
bits based on the ctmask, we always set them and perform the filtering
in the late stage, just before the delivery.

Thus, the event delivered looks like the following:

net: Fix ipv6 neighbour unregister_sysctl_table warning

In my testing of 2.6.37 I was occassionally getting a warning about
sysctl table entries being unregistered in the wrong order.  Digging
in it turns out this dates back to the last great sysctl reorg done
where Al Viro introduced the requirement that sysctl directories
needed to be created before and destroyed after the files in them.

It turns out that in that great reorg /proc/sys/net/ipv6/neigh was
overlooked.  So this patch fixes that oversight and makes an annoying
warning message go away.

net: Add default_mtu() methods to blackhole dst_ops

When an IPSEC SA is still being set up, __xfrm_lookup() will return
-EREMOTE and so ip_route_output_flow() will return a blackhole route.
This can happen in a sndmsg call, and after d33e455337ea ("net: Abstract
default MTU metric calculation behind an accessor.") this leads to a
crash in ip_append_data() because the blackhole dst_ops have no
default_mtu() method and so dst_mtu() calls a NULL pointer.

Fix this by adding default_mtu() methods (that simply return 0, matching
the old behavior) to the blackhole dst_ops.

The IPv4 part of this patch fixes a crash that I saw when using an IPSEC
VPN; the IPv6 part is untested because I don't have an IPv6 VPN, but it
looks to be needed as well.
