      decnet: fix DN_IFREQ_SIZE · 50c29366
      Johannes Berg authored
      Digging through the ioctls with Al because of the previous
      patches, we found that on 64-bit decnet's dn_dev_ioctl()
      is wrong, because struct ifreq::ifr_ifru is actually 24
      bytes (not 16 as expected from struct sockaddr) due to the
      ifru_map and ifru_settings members.
      
      Clearly, decnet expects the ioctl to be called with a struct
      like
        struct ifreq_dn {
          char ifr_name[IFNAMSIZ];
          struct sockaddr_dn ifr_addr;
        };
      
      since it does
        struct ifreq *ifr = ...;
        struct sockaddr_dn *sdn = (struct sockaddr_dn *)&ifr->ifr_addr;
      
      This means that DN_IFREQ_SIZE is too big for what it wants on
      64-bit, as it is
        sizeof(struct ifreq) - sizeof(struct sockaddr) +
        sizeof(struct sockaddr_dn)
      
      This assumes that sizeof(struct sockaddr) is the size of ifr_ifru
      but that isn't true.
      
      Fix this to use offsetof(struct ifreq, ifr_ifru).
      
      This indeed doesn't really matter much - the result is that we
      copy in/out 8 bytes more than we should on 64-bit platforms. In
      case the "struct ifreq_dn" lands just on the end of a page though
      it might lead to faults.
      
      As far as I can tell, it has been like this forever, so it seems
      very likely that nobody cares.

      Revert changes to convert to ->poll_mask() and aio IOCB_CMD_POLL · a11e1d43
      Linus Torvalds authored
      The poll() changes were not well thought out, and completely
      unexplained.  They also caused a huge performance regression, because
      "->poll()" was no longer a trivial file operation that just called down
      to the underlying file operations, but instead did at least two indirect
      calls.
      
      Indirect calls are sadly slow now with the Spectre mitigation, but the
      performance problem could at least be largely mitigated by changing the
      "->get_poll_head()" operation to just have a per-file-descriptor pointer
      to the poll head instead.  That gets rid of one of the new indirections.
      
      But that doesn't fix the new complexity that is completely unwarranted
      for the regular case.  The (undocumented) reason for the poll() changes
      was some alleged AIO poll race fixing, but we don't make the common case
      slower and more complex for some uncommon special case, so this all
      really needs way more explanations and most likely a fundamental
      redesign.
      
      [ This revert is a revert of about 30 different commits, not reverted
        individually because that would just be unnecessarily messy  - Linus ]

      net: make getname() functions return length rather than use int* parameter · 9b2c45d4
      Denys Vlasenko authored
      Changes since v1:
      Added changes in these files:
          drivers/infiniband/hw/usnic/usnic_transport.c
          drivers/staging/lustre/lnet/lnet/lib-socket.c
          drivers/target/iscsi/iscsi_target_login.c
          drivers/vhost/net.c
          fs/dlm/lowcomms.c
          fs/ocfs2/cluster/tcp.c
          security/tomoyo/network.c
      
      Before:
      All these functions either return a negative error indicator,
      or store length of sockaddr into "int *socklen" parameter
      and return zero on success.
      
      "int *socklen" parameter is awkward. For example, if caller does not
      care, it still needs to provide on-stack storage for the value
      it does not need.
      
      None of the many FOO_getname() functions of various protocols
      ever used old value of *socklen. They always just overwrite it.
      
      This change drops this parameter, and makes all these functions, on success,
      return length of sockaddr. It's always >= 0 and can be differentiated
      from an error.
      
      Tests in callers are changed from "if (err)" to "if (err < 0)", where needed.
      
      rpc_sockname() lost "int buflen" parameter, since its only use was
      to be passed to kernel_getsockname() as &buflen and subsequently
      not used in any way.
      
      Userspace API is not changed.

      vfs: do bulk POLL* -> EPOLL* replacement · a9a08845
      Linus Torvalds authored
      This is the mindless scripted replacement of kernel use of POLL*
      variables as described by Al, done by this script:
      
          for V in IN OUT PRI ERR RDNORM RDBAND WRNORM WRBAND HUP RDHUP NVAL MSG; do
              L=`git grep -l -w POLL$V | grep -v '^t' | grep -v /um/ | grep -v '^sa' | grep -v '/poll.h$'|grep -v '^D'`
              for f in $L; do sed -i "-es/^\([^\"]*\)\(\<POLL$V\>\)/\\1E\\2/" $f; done
          done
      
      with de-mangling cleanups yet to come.
      
      NOTE! On almost all architectures, the EPOLL* constants have the same
      values as the POLL* constants do.  But they keyword here is "almost".
      For various bad reasons they aren't the same, and epoll() doesn't
      actually work quite correctly in some cases due to this on Sparc et al.
      
      The next patch from Al will sort out the final differences, and we
      should be all done.

      net: delete /proc THIS_MODULE references · 96890d62
      Alexey Dobriyan authored
      /proc has been ignoring struct file_operations::owner field for 10 years.
      Specifically, it started with commit 786d7e16
      ("Fix rmmod/read/write races in /proc entries"). Notice the chunk where
      inode->i_fop is initialized with proxy struct file_operations for
      regular files:
      
      	-               if (de->proc_fops)
      	-                       inode->i_fop = de->proc_fops;
      	+               if (de->proc_fops) {
      	+                       if (S_ISREG(inode->i_mode))
      	+                               inode->i_fop = &proc_reg_file_ops;
      	+                       else
      	+                               inode->i_fop = de->proc_fops;
      	+               }
      
      VFS stopped pinning module at this point.

      treewide: setup_timer() -> timer_setup() · e99e88a9
      Kees Cook authored
      This converts all remaining cases of the old setup_timer() API into using
      timer_setup(), where the callback argument is the structure already
      holding the struct timer_list. These should have no behavioral changes,
      since they just change which pointer is passed into the callback with
      the same available pointers after conversion. It handles the following
      examples, in addition to some other variations.
      
      Casting from unsigned long:
      
          void my_callback(unsigned long data)
          {
              struct something *ptr = (struct something *)data;
          ...
          }
          ...
          setup_timer(&ptr->my_timer, my_callback, ptr);
      
      and forced object casts:
      
          void my_callback(struct something *ptr)
          {
          ...
          }
          ...
          setup_timer(&ptr->my_timer, my_callback, (unsigned long)ptr);
      
      become:
      
          void my_callback(struct timer_list *t)
          {
              struct something *ptr = from_timer(ptr, t, my_timer);
          ...
          }
          ...
          timer_setup(&ptr->my_timer, my_callback, 0);
      
      Direct function assignments:
      
          void my_callback(unsigned long data)
          {
              struct something *ptr = (struct something *)data;
          ...
          }
          ...
          ptr->my_timer.function = my_callback;
      
      have a temporary cast added, along with converting the args:
      
          void my_callback(struct timer_list *t)
          {
              struct something *ptr = from_timer(ptr, t, my_timer);
          ...
          }
          ...
          ptr->my_timer.function = (TIMER_FUNC_TYPE)my_callback;
      
      And finally, callbacks without a data assignment:
      
          void my_callback(unsigned long data)
          {
          ...
          }
          ...
          setup_timer(&ptr->my_timer, my_callback, 0);
      
      have their argument renamed to verify they're unused during conversion:
      
          void my_callback(struct timer_list *unused)
          {
          ...
          }
          ...
          timer_setup(&ptr->my_timer, my_callback, 0);
      
      The conversion is done with the following Coccinelle script:
      
      spatch --very-quiet --all-includes --include-headers \
      	-I ./arch/x86/include -I ./arch/x86/include/generated \

      treewide: Switch DEFINE_TIMER callbacks to struct timer_list * · 24ed960a
      Kees Cook authored
      This changes all DEFINE_TIMER() callbacks to use a struct timer_list
      pointer instead of unsigned long. Since the data argument has already been
      removed, none of these callbacks are using their argument currently, so
      this renames the argument to "unused".

      License cleanup: add SPDX GPL-2.0 license identifier to files with no license · b2441318
      Greg Kroah-Hartman authored
      Many source files in the tree are missing licensing information, which
      makes it harder for compliance tools to determine the correct license.
      
      By default all files without license information are under the default
      license of the kernel, which is GPL version 2.
      
      Update the files which contain no license information with the 'GPL-2.0'
      SPDX license identifier.  The SPDX identifier is a legally binding
      shorthand, which can be used instead of the full boiler plate text.
      
      This patch is based on work done by Thomas Gleixner and Kate Stewart and
      Philippe Ombredanne.
      
      How this work was done:
      
      Patches were generated and checked against linux-4.14-rc6 for a subset of
      the use cases:
       - file had no licensing information it it.
       - file was a */uapi/* one with no licensing information in it,
       - file was a */uapi/* one with existing licensing information,
      
      Further patches will be generated in subsequent months to fix up cases
      where non-standard license headers were used, and references to license
      had to be inferred by heuristics based on keywords.
      
      The analysis to determine which SPDX License Identifier to be applied to
      a file was done in a spreadsheet of side by side results from of the
      output of two independent scanners (ScanCode & Windriver) producing SPDX
      tag:value files created by Philippe Ombredanne.  Philippe prepared the
      base worksheet, and did an initial spot review of a few 1000 files.
      
      The 4.13 kernel was the starting point of the analysis with 60,537 files
      assessed.  Kate Stewart did a file by file comparison of the scanner
      results in the spreadsheet to determine which SPDX license identifier(s)
      to be applied to the file. She confirmed any determination that was not
      immediately clear with lawyers working with the Linux Foundation.
      
      Criteria used to select files for SPDX license identifier tagging was:
       - Files considered eligible had to be source code files.
       - Make and config files were included as candidates if they contained >5
         lines of source
       - File already had some variant of a license header in it (even if <5
         lines).
      
      All documentation files were explicitly excluded.
      
      The following heuristics were used to determine which SPDX license
      identifiers to apply.
      
       - when both scanners couldn't find any license traces, file was
         considered to have no license information in it, and the top level
         COPYING file license applied.
      
         For non */uapi/* files that summary was:
      
         SPDX license identifier                            # files
         ---------------------------------------------------|-------
         GPL-2.0                                              11139
      
         and resulted in the first patch in this series.
      
         If that file was a */uapi/* path one, it was "GPL-2.0 WITH
         Linux-syscall-note" otherwise it was "GPL-2.0".  Results of that was:
      
         SPDX license identifier                            # files
         ---------------------------------------------------|-------
         GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note                        930
      
         and resulted in the second patch in this series.
      
       - if a file had some form of licensing information in it, and was one
         of the */uapi/* ones, it was denoted with the Linux-syscall-note if
         any GPL family license was found in the file or had no licensing in
         it (per prior point).  Results summary:
      
         SPDX license identifier                            # files
         ---------------------------------------------------|------
         GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note                       270
         GPL-2.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note                      169
         ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR BSD-2-Clause)    21
         ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR BSD-3-Clause)    17
         LGPL-2.1+ WITH Linux-syscall-note                      15
         GPL-1.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note                       14
         ((GPL-2.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR BSD-3-Clause)    5
         LGPL-2.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note                       4
         LGPL-2.1 WITH Linux-syscall-note                        3
         ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR MIT)              3
         ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) AND MIT)             1
      
         and that resulted in the third patch in this series.
      
       - when the two scanners agreed on the detected license(s), that became
         the concluded license(s).
      
       - when there was disagreement between the two scanners (one detected a
         license but the other didn't, or they both detected different
         licenses) a manual inspection of the file occurred.
      
       - In most cases a manual inspection of the information in the file
         resulted in a clear resolution of the license that should apply (and
         which scanner probably needed to revisit its heuristics).
      
       - When it was not immediately clear, the license identifier was
         confirmed with lawyers working with the Linux Foundation.
      
       - If there was any question as to the appropriate license identifier,
         the file was flagged for further research and to be revisited later
         in time.
      
      In total, over 70 hours of logged manual review was done on the
      spreadsheet to determine the SPDX license identifiers to apply to the
      source files by Kate, Philippe, Thomas and, in some cases, confirmation
      by lawyers working with the Linux Foundation.
      
      Kate also obtained a third independent scan of the 4.13 code base from
      FOSSology, and compared selected files where the other two scanners
      disagreed against that SPDX file, to see if there was new insights.  The
      Windriver scanner is based on an older version of FOSSology in part, so
      they are related.
      
      Thomas did random spot checks in about 500 files from the spreadsheets
      for the uapi headers and agreed with SPDX license identifier in the
      files he inspected. For the non-uapi files Thomas did random spot checks
      in about 15000 files.
      
      In initial set of patches against 4.14-rc6, 3 files were found to have
      copy/paste license identifier errors, and have been fixed to reflect the
      correct identifier.
      
      Additionally Philippe spent 10 hours this week doing a detailed manual
      inspection and review of the 12,461 patched files from the initial patch
      version early this week with:
       - a full scancode scan run, collecting the matched texts, detected
         license ids and scores
       - reviewing anything where there was a license detected (about 500+
         files) to ensure that the applied SPDX license was correct
       - reviewing anything where there was no detection but the patch license
         was not GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note to ensure that the applied
         SPDX license was correct
      
      This produced a worksheet with 20 files needing minor correction.  This
      worksheet was then exported into 3 different .csv files for the
      different types of files to be modified.
      
      These .csv files were then reviewed by Greg.  Thomas wrote a script to
      parse the csv files and add the proper SPDX tag to the file, in the
      format that the file expected.  This script was further refined by Greg
      based on the output to detect more types of files automatically and to
      distinguish between header and source .c files (which need different
      comment types.)  Finally Greg ran the script using the .csv files to
      generate the patches.

      ipv6: only update __use and lastusetime once per jiffy at most · 0da4af00
      Wei Wang authored
      In order to not dirty the cacheline too often, we try to only update
      dst->__use and dst->lastusetime at most once per jiffy.
      As dst->lastusetime is only used by ipv6 garbage collector, it should
      be good enough time resolution.
      And __use is only used in ipv6_route_seq_show() to show how many times a
      dst has been used. And as __use is not atomic_t right now, it does not
      show the precise number of usage times anyway. So we think it should be
      OK to only update it at most once per jiffy.
      
      According to my latest syn flood test on a machine with intel Xeon 6th
      gen processor and 2 10G mlx nics bonded together, each with 8 rx queues
      on 2 NUMA nodes:
      With this patch, the packet process rate increases from ~3.49Mpps to
      ~3.75Mpps with a 7% increase rate.
      
      Note: dst_use() is being renamed to dst_hold_and_use() to better specify
      the purpose of the function.

      net: remove DST_NOGC flag · b2a9c0ed
      Wei Wang authored
      Now that all the components have been changed to release dst based on
      refcnt only and not depend on dst gc anymore, we can remove the
      temporary flag DST_NOGC.
      
      Note that we also need to remove the DST_NOCACHE check in dst_release()
      and dst_hold_safe() because now all the dst are released based on refcnt
      and behaves as DST_NOCACHE.

      decnet: take dst->__refcnt when struct dn_route is created · 560fd93b
      Wei Wang authored
      struct dn_route is inserted into dn_rt_hash_table but no dst->__refcnt
      is taken.
      This patch makes sure the dn_rt_hash_table's reference to the dst is ref
      counted.
      
      As the dst is always ref counted properly, we can safely mark
      DST_NOGC flag so dst_release() will release dst based on refcnt only.
      And dst gc is no longer needed and all dst_free() or its related
      function calls should be replaced with dst_release() or
      dst_release_immediate(). And dst_dev_put() is called when removing dst
      from the hash table to release the reference on dst->dev before we lose
      pointer to it.
      
      Also, correct the logic in dn_dst_check_expire() and dn_dst_gc() to
      check dst->__refcnt to be > 1 to indicate it is referenced by other
      users.

      decnet: always not take dst->__refcnt when inserting dst into hash table · 247488c0
      Wei Wang authored
      In the existing dn_route.c code, dn_route_output_slow() takes
      dst->__refcnt before calling dn_insert_route() while dn_route_input_slow()
      does not take dst->__refcnt before calling dn_insert_route().
      This makes the whole routing code very buggy.
      In dn_dst_check_expire(), dnrt_free() is called when rt expires. This
      makes the routes inserted by dn_route_output_slow() not able to be
      freed as the refcnt is not released.
      In dn_dst_gc(), dnrt_drop() is called to release rt which could
      potentially cause the dst->__refcnt to be dropped to -1.
      In dn_run_flush(), dst_free() is called to release all the dst. Again,
      it makes the dst inserted by dn_route_output_slow() not able to be
      released and also, it does not wait on the rcu and could potentially
      cause crash in the path where other users still refer to this dst.
      
      This patch makes sure both input and output path do not take
      dst->__refcnt before calling dn_insert_route() and also makes sure
      dnrt_free()/dst_free() is called when removing dst from the hash table.
      The only difference between those 2 calls is that dnrt_free() waits on
      the rcu while dst_free() does not.
