      filter: add SKF_AD_NLATTR_NEST to look for nested attributes · d214c753
      Pablo Neira Ayuso authored
      SKF_AD_NLATTR allows us to find the first matching attribute in a
      stream of netlink attributes from one offset to the end of the
      netlink message. This is not suitable to look for a specific
      matching inside a set of nested attributes.
      For example, in ctnetlink messages, if we look for the CTA_V6_SRC
      attribute in a message that talks about an IPv4 connection,
      SKF_AD_NLATTR returns the offset of CTA_STATUS which has the same
      value of CTA_V6_SRC but outside the nest. To differenciate
      CTA_STATUS and CTA_V6_SRC, we would have to make assumptions on the
      size of the attribute and the usual offset, resulting in horrible
      BSF code.
      This patch adds SKF_AD_NLATTR_NEST, which is a variant of
      SKF_AD_NLATTR, that looks for an attribute inside the limits of
      a nested attributes, but not further.
      This patch validates that we have enough room to look for the
      nested attributes - based on a suggestion from Patrick McHardy.

      [SKFILTER]: Add SKF_ADF_NLATTR instruction · 4738c1db
      Patrick McHardy authored
      SKF_ADF_NLATTR searches for a netlink attribute, which avoids manually
      parsing and walking attributes. It takes the offset at which to start
      searching in the 'A' register and the attribute type in the 'X' register
      and returns the offset in the 'A' register. When the attribute is not
      found it returns zero.
      A top-level attribute can be located using a filter like this
      (example for nfnetlink, using struct nfgenmsg):
      		/* A = offset of first attribute */
      		.code	= BPF_LD | BPF_IMM,
      		.k	= sizeof(struct nlmsghdr) + sizeof(struct nfgenmsg)
      		/* X = CTA_PROTOINFO */
      		.code	= BPF_LDX | BPF_IMM,
      		.k	= CTA_PROTOINFO,
      		/* A = netlink attribute offset */
      		.code	= BPF_LD | BPF_B | BPF_ABS,
      		.k	= SKF_AD_OFF + SKF_AD_NLATTR
      		/* Exit if not found */
      		.code   = BPF_JMP | BPF_JEQ | BPF_K,
      		.k	= 0,
      		.jt	= <error>
      A nested attribute below the CTA_PROTOINFO attribute would then
      be parsed like this:
      		/* A += sizeof(struct nlattr) */
      		.code	= BPF_ALU | BPF_ADD | BPF_K,
      		.k	= sizeof(struct nlattr),
      		/* X = CTA_PROTOINFO_TCP */
      		.code	= BPF_LDX | BPF_IMM,
      		.k	= CTA_PROTOINFO_TCP,
      		/* A = netlink attribute offset */
      		.code	= BPF_LD | BPF_B | BPF_ABS,
      		.k	= SKF_AD_OFF + SKF_AD_NLATTR
      The data of an attribute can be loaded into 'A' like this:
      		/* X = A (attribute offset) */
      		.code	= BPF_MISC | BPF_TAX,
      		/* A = skb->data[X + k] */
      		.code 	= BPF_LD | BPF_B | BPF_IND,
      		.k	= sizeof(struct nlattr),

      That's the deref of fp:
      static void sk_filter_delayed_uncharge(struct sock *sk, struct sk_filter *fp)
              unsigned int size = sk_filter_len(fp);
      That is called from sk_attach_filter():
              old_fp = rcu_dereference(sk->sk_filter);
              rcu_assign_pointer(sk->sk_filter, fp);
              sk_filter_delayed_uncharge(sk, old_fp);
              return 0;
      So, looks like rcu_dereference() returned NULL. I don't know the
      filter code at all, but it seems like it might be a valid case?
      sk_detach_filter() seems to handle a NULL sk_filter, at least.
      So, this needs review by someone who knows the filter, but it fixes the
      problem for me:

      [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).

      [NET]: 2.6.13 breaks libpcap (and tcpdump) · 1198ad00
      Herbert Xu authored
      Patrick McHardy says:
        Never mind, I got it, we never fall through to the second switch
        statement anymore. I think we could simply break when load_pointer
        returns NULL. The switch statement will fall through to the default
        case and return 0 for all cases but 0 > k >= SKF_AD_OFF.
      Here's a patch to do just that.
      I left BPF_MSH alone because it's really a hack to calculate the IP
      header length, which makes no sense when applied to the special data.

      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!
